Dear Maintainer,

I recently re-installed after replacing a drive on macmini3,1 which worked
nearly flawlessly except
that I needed to drop to a shell and install gptsync and run it during the "now
we'll reboot" dialog at
the end. I believe this is needed if anything was changed in partitioning. Of
course, one may run gptsync
from rEFIt or the Mac OS X installer instead, but since gptsync is packaged and
works fine it would be
great to just run it.

I note that guided partitioning used a biosgrub partition, which is needed for
"bios compatibility mode"
on mac hardware, from what I gather. The installer also selected grub-pc, which
would be correct for
bios compatibility -- however, the MBR needs to be correct for (at least) the
default Apple bootloader
to try. I had rEFIt installed on a USB key, and was installing from a
(different) USB key but wanted to do
away with rEFIt (and OS X) for this one.

Otherwise, the installer worked great, and continues to look better and better.

thank you for submitting bug reports concering debian-installer, much 

I read through all the bugs mentioned here (and I'm sure they were read by 
several people at the time they were submitted) and am closing them now as/if
- they (finally) indicated success and/or
- I know from first hand experience that the functionality is working in 
Wheezy and/or
- they only contained very little information and/or
- they contained user errors and/or
- they have been from a development phase where things were not stable and/or
- they are very old and/or
- they are wishlist but rather special + exotic and not have been acted on for 
years. (See http://blog.liw.fi/posts/wishlist-bugs/ why it's often useful to 
close wishlist bugs.)

If I've closed a bug incorrectly please do reply (it's easy to reopen and I'll 
do if requested) or just file a new one - and that's often better, as the bug 
log will be clearer and shorter and not contain cruft.
