Description

BootMan would benefit greatly adding a first wizard "step" to select the drive in which the MBR will be installed.

On modern systems, it is very easy to change the drive boot priority and the "master" is not always the first disk in the bios.

Maybe like:

Please select the drive to install the MBR.

o Seagate ST3020xxxx 500G (drive 0) o Maxtor MAX543543x 1TB (drive 1)

Or at least the option to specify the MBR device from the command line :)

Thanks!

Sigh... Trac.

Example:

Please select the drive to install the MBR.

o Seagate ST3020xxxx 500G (drive 0)

o Maxtor MAX543543x 1TB (drive 1)

I've recently implemented that, and it actually works since hrev40167.
