I haven't used it in years. But that used to work well, for me. Then it bit
me one time. Still, I could imagine, with recent UEFI implementations, This
might be an easy way for folks to get and installation up and working. Not
that we have to address facilitating a way around problematic hardware,
like that. I have not secured a Windows 10 installation, yet. I plan to,
and I could check will be, and see if it's working from there, if there's
interest in keeping it around. It's always available, even if we don't ship
it on the ISO.
