At the risk of (very slowly) going down a long rabbit hole: if it's worth doing the above, I think it's worth finding out if there are any persistent problems resulting in installation failure. Transient problems can probably be ignored. Example, the first time I used BFO, it (I think anaconda) hung up for 2-3 hours because a mirror it had decided to use wasn't available, and there was no fall back. That's since been fixed, I think, but that's been years.

Do an installation, note any non-transient errors?
