1. Since iPXE specializes in network-booting, perhaps you simply want to 
exit iPXE, which should then give control back to your BIOS boot-order.  
If your hard drive is next in that boot-order, then the hard disk's 
boot-loader (such as Syslinux) will be invoked.

2. You can do iPXE -> PXELINUX, and then use chain.c32 from Syslinux.

I hope this helps you.
