I have no idea what he did in his video. He also kept calling these UUID's a "security feature". Nothing to do with security.
Not only that, but Windows basically uses it's equivalent for where it mounts a drive, so both OSes behave the same in this respect.
If the GUID somehow gets assigned to a different drive Letter in the Registry (as will happen, for example, putting it in another computer with an existing drive), Windows will not boot.
