[InstallCD] Opening DriveSetup changes target partition

So select a target partition, choose more options, open DriveSetup from the button, close it, now the target partition is not the one you chose but the first from the list. This may be a tragic mistake for someone not cautious!

I understand that after potentially changing the partition layout with DriveSetup the target partition selected list has to repopulate so you can't easily preserve the position on that list. So I guess the first position on the list should be a fake position, something like "Please select a destination".

That would also help with the problem, that after starting up, the Installer has the first availlable partition selected: if you accidentally pressed enter, you'd have it rewritten!

Is this still valid with the UI changes ?

Yes, the main point of this ticket is that you accidentally install to the wrong partition, but that's not the case anymore. Instead, the Begin button is disabled again and you have to conciously choose your old/new target partition.
