That does not seem to make sense. Qemu or some such (if it runs
on Windows) sounds more likely than unloading the Windows kernel
on the fly.
But as I said, this is too important for speculation, we need
something in the know to explain what is meant by the initial
sentence. The -boot list is CC, so that should not be too much
of a problem :)
