The linked post or one of it's replies warns of "bricking windows," if it is moved 
off the disk, the exe file executed from the windows drive, and installer mode
selected. I have no idea if that is true or not, but be sure to do any testing 
of this beyond the "reboot greeter" on an expendable install.
