How to prevent new installations when I have already installed my client through LAN boot?

What I do is create a pxe boot menu and set the hd as 1st boot device. That
way you need to confirm the installation

(and the system reboots automatically, as I ask it to), the recently
installed client boots again through the LAN (as expected) but begins the
installation process again (something that I want to avoid).
