It's a dd for Windows with a simple GUI. In other words, it should keep working as long as our dd instructions work.

Does UUI work for UEFI boot? If it does, then this proposal brings a serious regression.

For the record, dd-type installation doesn't work with UEFI in our automated test suite. I verified with:

  Scenario: bla
    Given a computer
    And the computer is set to boot in UEFI mode
    Given I temporarily create a 4 GiB disk named "isohybrid" 
    And I write the Tails ISO image to disk "isohybrid" 
    When I start Tails from USB drive "isohybrid" with network unplugged and I login

(last step fails at UEFI boot menu)

I don't have access to a UEFI computer so I cannot test UUI on UEFI.

anonym: Can you do that?

Moved this to #14959: it's somewhat off-topic here, and it makes little sense to me to block on this test before sajolida can make progress here.
