It can of course be done.

You can mount this using magiciso and expand to say d:\win2k8 and install from there.

"Your computer will restart several times during upgrade" is this will create any problem, since my computer installation files in f: drive... that is local disk.

After the setup process issues the first reboot to the system, the network resource or my computer installation F drive  will not be required to continue the setup process.
