This is normally done by fai.
You have to call fai-chboot -o default once on the install
server. Then the installation client will call task chboot to disable
its own pxe configuration. During the next boot it will the the PXE
configuration (craeted by fai-chboot -o default) that will cause the
client to boot from local disk.
