  Hmm.  The docs suggest that the replace-on-reboot functionality

a) can't work on network drives
b) needs write access to the registry key:
c) may fail if "the System volume is a basic volume [ ... and ... ] the
destination drive or the source drive is located on a dynamic volume"

  Any of those apply to you guys?
