Aaugh! Worthless disk device screen is back!

I use and appreciate this feature.  Its comforting to know that the
installer won't mess with disks I tell it not to, and some have mounting
requirements I don't want to address until after the install.

I'm glad you were able to work around this to complete your installation.
No software can fit every use case, but if this is your biggest complaint,
you'll be OK.
