what do you mean stuck at PXE - is it able to boot to hard disk - can you not hit escape to bypass PXE ?

Send a "reboot to production" task to it.

"Stuck at the PXE boot screen" sounds like you end up in WinPE.  If you are, simply reboot.

Before doing so, restart the Netboot_Server service on the PXE server / Site server to which the client connects for PXE.  You loose NOTHING if you hard-reboot from a WinPE screen.

If you mean it's literally in the PXE boot menu (odd) that you get when bootinf from a NIC, just bounce it.
