#325 closed System Defect (fixed)

installation: keep the install entry menu for much longer

When all modules are loaded, PCBSD installer shows entry install menu (if it should install in normal mode, or without ACPI, etc). IMHO the time period of showing this menu is too short.

Actually, I personally thinks, that because it is installation, and not just booting already installed system, there should be no timeout at all. Every step should be manually confirmed.

In my case, before I could do anything (and loading modules took already a lot of time), installer was proceeding with default options. Not, that default options are bad, but admin should be in control here.
