Description Christopher Aillon 2006-01-17 14:54:46 EST
We chose install, went back, it defaulted to upgrade without us noticing,
continued on, it offered a confirmation dialog at some point "Are you sure you
want to upgrade?"  Clicking on cancel rebooted the machine instead of letting us
change options.

Unfortunately, it's not really possible to just go back and change things once
you get past mounting filesystems as we can't be guaranteed to be able to turn
off swap, etc
Comment 2 Christopher Aillon 2006-01-18 13:12:32 EST
Is there a way to defer mounting the FS until the user confirms this is really
what he wants to do?
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2006-01-18 13:24:33 EST
We basically have to do it as the step right after you said you wanted to
upgrade.  So it would basically be "choose install vs upgrade, pop up dialog to
confirm they wanted upgrade" which is kind of silly
Comment 4 Christopher Aillon 2006-01-18 13:29:13 EST
Can we rename the "Cancel" button to read "Reboot" so users aren't taken aback?
