I really never understood Microsoft's use of mini-installers to install the installer! What a PITA.
When I want to install something I either want to:

B) Need a full copy of the installer to take it to likely a non-internet capable network to do the install, so give me the full installer
The mini-installer serves no purpose what so ever in my opinion.
