I think this is very useful for e.g. re-installing a machine automatically. I've previously switched between PXE and HD boot by setting the BIOS boot order to HD first, PXE second and then wiping the MBR whenever I need to PXE-boot to reinstall the machine, but this is simpler and allows for more use-cases.

Kind regards,
