You're being dropped into low or medium priority for some reason. If you
started the installation in expert mode, that's why; if you didn't then
some error occurred during the first stage which should have brought it
to the menu there, and the second stage priority is following along with
that. Expert mode installs are not partitulrly preseedable, if it's in
high priority you skip the menus.
