The win32 installer doesn't implement this behaviour. It merely setups
the system to boot the D-I that came with the CD.
If the D-I that came with the CD is a CD installer, it will behave like a
CD installer. If it's an hd-media installer, it'll behave like an hd-media
If it's useful to D-I, it could preseed a debconf parameter to let D-I know
it's being run by win32-loader, but what you want can't be done by win32-loader
