I tried the the two boot options.
They work (i.e. it does not crash.
However, it does not let me do manual partitioning.
That absolutely sucks and blows at the same time.
Who thought this crap out.
Also, it does not provide for the option to upgrade.
In fact the banner does not even say
Install or Upgrade.
It just says install and the only partitioning scheme it
allows is the automatic one.

Not for me!!
