Re: Last call for testing, announcement on Saturday
fails at the Install bootloader step with error
"The 'grub-pc' package failed to install into /target."
Log on tty4 displays:

Looking at /target/etc/apt/sources.list all three lines (cdrom,
security and sources for security) were commented out.
Uncommenting the cdrom line helped and after rerunning the 'Install
bootloader' step the installation finished as expected.
Possible causes of the error:
- the machine was not able to connect to the network (that's why I
chose to go with full CD media and not only netinst), due to the
fact WPA setup is not supported - therefore after failling to
obtain DHCP lease I chose 'No network setup now'.
- question to install additional software displayed only 'Standard
unix tools' task, which I deselected as I prefer to select
