That’s a serious bummer, to say the least. :( Which of our images did you place on the
usb drive? We have several types, and the one with the world “installer” in it should
have given you a user interface. The provisioning image has no UI and is destructive.
We have explanations (and warnings) about these images on our Getting Started page:
With that said, the actual installer in our installer image is functional but rough around
the edges with respect to conformance to typical UI behaviors (focus-changes with tab,
shit-tab, etc..). We have a new version of the installer almost ready to release that is
far more polished and elegant.
Suggestion: Make sure you are using the installer image, don’t choose “autoinstall”. Try
booting the installer image in a VM to make sure you’ve got the right image and it’s
behaving as expected.

Subject: [Dev] Install image fails
I'm not sure this is the place to post but I don't have any other options.
I followed the instructions for the install pen drive creation and got it to run but was
given no choice for a drive to install on. It chose the hard drive without telling me,
wiped the drive and failed to install anything leaving me with a boat anchor. I had to
install Windows 10, as there was no recovery partition left from the original 8.1
The live image fails to boot.
So far I can't say I'm very impressed.
Any suggestions appreciated.
