UEFI PXE server elilo.conf configuration


I am trying to setup a UEFI PXE server on SLES11. I need to be able to have multiple images in the elilo.conf file. But I am not getting the right syntax to be able to do that. How can I have a menu displayed during boot for the elilo.conf file? If someone would provide the whole syntax for multiple images that would show a menu that would be great. Thanks in advance. I am using the following which is not working.

prompt
timeout=50

image=linux-sles11-1
label=linux
initrd=initrd-sles11-1

image=linux-sles11
label=linux-new
initrd=initrd-sles11

Shows how to start a menu.

Pretty sure it is like any pxe menu.c32 file in construction.

Thanks for the reply. But this one works only for BIOS PXE. For UEFI PXE the bootloader elilo.efi reguires a config file named elilo.conf. I have tried the pxelinux.cfg and then menu.c32. But the elilo.efi does not work with those except for elilo.conf. And I could not find any syntax for elilo.conf that would show a menu. It just loads one image directly even if I have multiple entries in there without showing a menu.Any help would be appreciated.
