PXE Booting VM On N-VDS

I’m attempting to boot a VM and PXE install the OS. The wrinkle here is that the VM is on a NSX Segment and N-VDS. The DHCP server is as well and confirmed that VMs on the same segment can get IPs from the DHCP server.

so question is...any tricks to make PXE booting VMs which are backed by NSX Segments?

done all the normal Googling and Docs lookup but nada.

I wouldn't think there should be much extra other than allowing certain ports, but only if you're doing segmentation. It uses TFTP, so are you able to pass that traffic? Is your PXE server reachable from the VM? And are your DHCP options set appropriately?
