You wouldn't unless your /boot partition is on a separate disk to the Windows partition because then you could in theory, swap between the two disks using the bios, swapping their boot order.
There must be a boot loader present on the mbr of the first boot device in the bios' boot order or a boot loader installed on the very first physical partition of the first boot device.
You could get the installer to install grub to the root or boot partitions but if Windows is installed on your machine, you would need to install another boot loader to chain load Fedora from wherever it is installed afterwards.
Software for Windows such as Acronis Disk Director contain boot loader software which allow you to boot basically anything and control the boot loader from in Windows.
It's obviously not free software like grub though.
