PXE Boot Ubuntu 20.10 with isc-dhcp and tftp-hpa Server no Menu

Asked by Robe Mendoza on 2021-04-23

I have install Ubuntu Server 20.10 with tftp-hpa service, i have isc-dhcp running failover services(2 servers responding to a single flat subnet) running on another server, all devices are on same flat single vlan no routers involve.

I have tried many times and read many articles but nothing seems to match what i need to do, some articles are superficial nothing concise to the topic

I am looking for help since i am a newbie. Directions and assistance will be much appriciated

Below my issue.
Every time my VM instance restart to pxe boot
dhcp provides ip address
NBP file name is pxelinux.0
NBP files download successfully
No menu is provided
VM instance goes back to BIOS Menu

i check Ubuntu tftp-hpa log via tail -f
