Hello ,

        I hope that you are well. I think that killing grub was good enough it
seems to finish the install but boots up in text mode, which is easy to
fix. Thanks for the advice though.

        But I encounter rpm installation problems, like trying to update the
up2date utility, it seems to spit out a whole bunch of db4 related
errors and that it finds the resource unavailable. I don't know if this
is something that is related to the installer1.3 as it never was a
problem in installer1.2
