Hi Benno,
I tried this image on a Supermicro SYS-5019S-M (X11SSH-Fmotherboard) and it boots both ways (USB was via a USB stick, ISO was via the IPMI CD emulation with the Java JNLP applet)

The USB way booted legacy and the CD emulation booted UEFI (not sure if that's significant).

I also tried renaming it to .img and then telling the JNLP applet it was a hard disk image but the BIOS didn't detect it.

It also has a 'Web ISO' option but I can't figure out how you're supposed to enter a URL so I couldn't try it.

Thanks for the work!
