Windows 7: Windows Boot Manager in BIOS boots only at Boot option 1

Windows Boot Manager in BIOS boots only at Boot option 1

I need to put the Windows OS, that means Windows Boot Manager in BIOS at Boot option 2, but in this case it does not boot.
I need to put at boot position 1 PXE boot and if that fails boot from Boot option 2 (Windows). How could I do that?
My motherboard is Gigabyte GA-Z97P-D3.

Thank you!

Hello and welcome Hariskar just out of curiosity could you let us know why you don't want the Windows boor manager at option 1??

I am not familiar with the PXE boot to be honest and just know it looks to be some form of external boot system.

Thank you ICIT2LOL!
I have a linux server with fog installed and I want it to boot both my PCs and take image of their disks ans shut them down when it is finished. So, I have to put at boot option 1 PXE network boot and at option 2 Windows.
I overcomed the problem with the great help of fog developers.

Hi Harikar,
You may run into problems if you dont have W7 >> SET << as the primary OS.

It is primary OS. When PC exits from PXE it boots into Windows.

There are 2 cases:
1. linux server boots PC in PXE, makes disk image and shuts down PCs.
2. I press the ON button to open Windows. So BIOS goes to boot option 1 (PXE network boot) and sees that there is no imaging task in the server, then it goes to option 2 and opens Windows.

Don't worry, the problem is solved by now. Just know that if you need to take backups/images of PCs the open source fog project is a great solution!
