BETA 2 installer is a step backward. I have installed every version and never ran into "you must reboot for this action to take place", and when it comes back, the changes one made are gone. The recommended was resizing a small windows partition to give pclos 6 gig. That failed. Not what I wanted in any case. I wanted to set up /, /home and swap.
I got it installed by changing the type on one partition , and saying to heck with it.
The installer that was once intuitive and simple has been changed...for the worse. Bad boys, you get no pudding <G><
All that said, pclos installed is as good as ever. NTFS external was mountable on plugging in. Everything just works out of the box.
I will not be recommending to NooBs as the installer stands, or a good set of instructions to tell the manual don't work like it used to.
So, other than the installer, a good job!!!!!!!
