You need to setup your machine to boot local disk after network, and use the "exit" command in iPXE to continue the BIOS boot order. If your BIOS doesn't boot the next device in the boot order after exit, you have a broken BIOS. Trying to use sanboot --no-describe --drive 0x80 to boot the first BIOS drive _might_ work for you as a workaround.

To add on to this, if for some reason SANBOOT AND EXIT type's don't allow booting, you may need to integrate grub into the boot environment to have it allow booting to the first HDD. This isn't 100% guaranteed to work for you either, but it's always best to have options and know about them.
