Well if you put it that way. I have to agree with
you. It's better to do
a hard reboot for true changes to appear.
But, honestly, mid-install is not the time to test that.
It makes fixing it harder - because the system isn't fully configured yet.
If I was installing a server, I'd reboot it at least once. To be sure.
Yeah, you would hope so, but as someone who currently has a machine that
the 12.2 beta will install properly, and "reboot" into the working
system afterward, yet fails to boot from a cold reboot due to it being a
EFI-based system, it is really annoying. I'd much rather find out the
install failed earlier...
But as I'm not working on the installer, I really don't have much to say
about it :)
Now if only we shipped a EFI-stub-enabled kernel, that would solve a lot
of my issues, but that's a different topic...
