Bug Description

hello,

since ubuntu 19.10 Eoan Ermine (beta & daily) PXE boot/nfsboot is broken from:
http://releases.ubuntu.com/eoan/ubuntu-19.10-beta-desktop-amd64.iso
and
http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/daily-live/pending/eoan-desktop-amd64.iso

when i use the same boot options as of ubuntu 19.04 (or 18.04 LTS), where it was working, i will get am error message now:
"

i use lpxelinux.0 as boot loader.
the pxe boot menu entry looks like:
    ########################################
    LABEL ubuntu-daily-x64
        MENU LABEL Ubuntu x64 Daily-Live
        KERNEL http://192.168.1.1/nfs/ubuntu-daily-x64/casper/vmlinuz

        TEXT HELP
            Boot to Ubuntu x64 Daily-Live

this ist the same as for ubuntu 19.04 Disco Dingo, and there i don't run into this error message

I also had this problem and indeed, the solution was ip=dhcp. Thank you very much!
