It should be pretty straight forward although I've never tried it before. The 
main problem would be the installation of a potentially updated KMDF library, 
and also a bit of reworking the drivers do on the first boot to make sure that 
the emulated ide and network devices are disabled.

I think the slipstream process is reasonably well documented by Microsoft so if 
you have the time you could just give it a go and see what happens.
