Solved Skip boot manager script?

Specs: Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 x64, Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 x64
Hi everyone.

I was wondering if you could possibly help me with a small issue I'd like to resolve.
I hope I'll manage to explain my problem thoroughly.

My computer hosts two OS:
1. [Default] Windows 7 Ultimate SP1, x64.
2. Windows 2008 Server R2 SP1, x64. *

(* The second OS is actually booted from a VHD file.)

As it should, whenever I turn on my computer, I get the "Windows boot manager" asking me to either hit enter, wait 30 seconds for the default OS to boot (Windows 7), or select to boot the second OS (Server 2008).

RDP has been configured for both OS and is working perfectly.

However, let's say I'm now connected via RDP to Windows 7. I have no option, that I know of, to remotely restart my PC, have Windows Boot Manager select the second OS (Server 2008) and then start a different RDP session.

Notice that due to the fact that Windows 7 is my default OS and had it been the other way around; connected via RDP to Windows Server and then wanting to start a Windows 7 RDP session, a simple restart would have sufficed.

Is there any .bat/other script/software I can use that would allow a "one-time" automatic selection of OS by skipping the boot manager?

Thanks!

✔ Best Answer
I apologize.

Minutes after posting this, I've found a software that answers my requirement.
If anyone's interested, It's called "iReboot".

I've tested it on both OS and it's working perfectly.

Thanks again and sorry to have wasted your time!
