Installing Windows on HDD part of Fusion ?

I would like to keep the SSD part of a Fusion drive for my Mac programs, I was wondering if I could install Windows on the HDD part of the drive.

The version of 10.8.2 that comes with the Mini is different than the version available on the AppStore.

The pre-installed version includes new versions of Disk Utility and Boot Camp Assistant that know how to handle the Fusion Drive.

DO NOT try to run Boot Camp Assistant on a Fusion Drive with less than 10.8.2 (Build 12C2034). Misery awaits you.
