It was a new sony vaio SVE1512..
The owner is a student, so I can no longer play with it.

For me this model was not so cool. Ok, I was not prepared for pxe over IPv6.
It tries also pxe over ipv4.

But this device has some other features too, for which I was not prepared, 
secure boot and uefi boot. If you disable it, you can boot from cd and other 
media but no longer the preinstalled win8(gpt partioned) . But the discussion 
about signed bootloaders is a little bit off topic here, it only touches pxe 
over IPv6  because the "boot medium" has to be "secure".
