In this example, we assume (1) The IP address of your PXE server is, (2) the customized script (custom-ocs-2) is put on your PXE server's tftpd root dir (E.g. On DRBL server, the path is /tftpboot/nbi_img/. It might be different in your case if you are not using DRBL server as a PXE server).
Therefor your pxelinux.cfg/default file is like:

label Clonezilla Live
MENU LABEL Clonezilla Live
kernel vmlinuz1
append initrd=initrd1.img boot=live union=overlay username=user config components quiet noswap edd=on nomodeset enforcing=0 noeject vga=788 fetch=tftp:// ocs_prerun="busybox tftp -g -r custom-ocs-2 -l /tmp/custom-ocs-2" ocs_live_run="bash /tmp/custom-ocs-2" keyboard-layouts=NONE ocs_live_batch="no" locales="en_US.UTF-8" nolocales

  ocs-sr -l en_US.UTF-8 -c -p choose restoredisk ask_user ask_user
  [ "$BOOTUP" = "color" ] && $SETCOLOR_FAILURE
  echo "Fail to find the Clonezilla image home /home/partimag!"
