I had the same issue. Motherboard had a boot option "Legacy LAN" and it worked. I suspect it might be something related to LAN card support in kernel. Or maybe flaky network. Perhaps you can try when you fall in the shell to bring up the network card and/or load its driver. Hopefully that will show why process is timing out.

Or maybe flaky network. Perhaps you can try when you fall in the error shell to bring up the network card and/or load its driver. Hopefully that will show why process is timing out.

Update (since the above didn't work for you): I see reported fedora 24 booting live-cd like:

default menu
menu title PXE
prompt 0
timeout 200
ontimeout local

label local
  menu label ^Boot from local drive
  menu default
  localboot 0

label fedora-live
  menu label Fedora Workstation LiveBoot
  kernel boot/fedora-live/vmlinuz
  append initrd=boot/fedora-live/initrd.img root=live:http://nas.home.lan/xxx/squashfs.img ro rd.live.image rd.luks=0 rd.md=0 rd.dm=0

I think parameter names mismatch between debian based distros and Red Hat based. I'm not yet sure how booting into a NFS root should work but I know some people have it working as well it shouldn't involve the live-cd squashfs image. You can maybe try running the live-cd first and once it is working you could write a separate question about it (this one is about live media I see).
