Does grub of Hikey960 support booting from network/tftp?

If answer is yes, Could someone share any reference links/docs?

I am not looking specifically for network support in grub. Instead my aim is to
boot linux kernel and dtb from network.
Any information to do that would be really appreciated.

Sreenad.

GRUB does support network boot, but the main blocker is the lack of network interface and as far as I know, Hikey960 EDK2/UEFI does not support usb/ethernet.

Don’t think so. Netboot by WiFi tends to difficult because there is no
WiFi stack on EDK2, likewise ethernet by USB needs a USB driver for the
controller and the ethernet chip.
