Windows bootloader configuration is stored on ESP; of course it is not
changed often. Also Windows still needs to update bootloader every
now and then. This is actually quite similar to secure boot with grub2
used by Linux today where only pointer to /boot need to be set. As
neither binary nor grub.cfg snippet normally change we probably could
skip even that after initial installation.
