BOOT_USB.exe has option Add G4d to Win7 Menu

Select your Target Drive which has Boot folder and bootmgr and Then Select above option.

In Win7 OS you need to have User Account Control off.

More Info http://www.911cd.net/forums//index.php?showtopic=24424

However, if you want to use a WinPE Boot Image file then you don't need to select above option,

but may simply Select that image file and your Target Drive

and with GO your Grub4dos Menu and G4d entry in BootMgr Menu is made.

It works also on Non USB-drives e.g. the OS bootdrive of your fixed harddisk.

I know I can use grub first and load winpe from it. But I don't want that. I want to use windows boot manager and from it to load grub4dos. Is this possible or not? and I need this to work with pxe.

This by itself is simply possible. Try to use BOOT_USB.exe to add such option to your existing bootmgr Menu.

If it works in PXE ?

I have no experience with PXE. May be someone else can tell you.

May be this is also interesting

grub4dos can be added to BOOTMGR choices (actually to the BCD) adding an entry for grldr.mbr.

It's in the Guide allright:

LATEST grub4dos has grub.exe directly chainloadable from NTLDR, but cannot say if it works from BOOTMGR also.
