how do you netboot Bodhi linux using iPXE?

why need remove 3 lines to netboot Bodhi linux using iPXE?

hi, how do you netboot Bodhi linux using iPXE?

recently I trid to boot Bodhi linux using iPXE:
kernel vmlinuz boot=casper live-media-path=var
initrd initrd.lz filesystem.squashfs
everytime it told me this error:
(initramfs) Unable to find a medium containing a live file system

by chance,
I press Enter and ls /var, and I can see the filesystem.squashfs is there.
and then type "exit" , it suddenly continued to boot, and boot into mokasa desktop successfully

I want to boot without typing "exit",

after some search, I found that in script /scripts/casper,
it'd panic if finding no livefs_root:

/scripts/casper line 722 :
    if [ -z "${livefs_root}" ]; then
        panic "Unable to find a medium containing a live file system"
but, actually the livefs_root filesystem.squashfs is in /var, and no need to panic.

after removing these 3 lines, I can boot into desktop using iPXE without typing 'exit' mannually.

how to do iPXE netbooging without removing these 3 lines? any special kernel parameter?
