You can uncheck checkbox and boot flag for device is not set (skip
activating).

What happened was correct boot flag was set prior to starting installation.
Then installation proceeded to remove the boot flag in conjunction with
instruction given it to not touch MBR, which resulted in unbootable system,
until I booted emergency mode to reset the flag that the installation process
removed. There is no excuse for such an event to happen when the installer was
told to do nothing at all involving MBR.
