That and so if it *doesn't* boot, you don't find yourself 3 hours (or 3
days) into installing Debian only to have to start over because of some
problem with the boot loader.

Note that in some installation methods in expert mode, there is a menu
item down near the bottom that lets you run the second stage if
installation without rebooting, although this is not well tested.
