I did try to manage to get this, and it is not possible to me to reproduce this. I need the full documentation of how to replicate that.

Thank you for reporting about, :)
Anyway look like ericbsd is having difficult to replicate the problem, a very accurate step by step guidance would be very much appreciated. ;)

I'll try mess up the installer again somewhen in the evening. I hope that I can find a pattern and thus provide a step-by-step procedure that is repeatable.

Ok, this is actually pretty easy. Here's how to confuse the installer:

1. Boot GhostBSD (GhostBSD11.1-BETA1-20170829-182151-mate-amd64 in my case), should not make a difference, though.
2. Run the GhostBSD installer
3. Pick any language
4. Pick any keymap
5. Pick any timezone
6. Select UFS Full Disk Configuration
7. Check ada0 but click "back" instead of "next"!
8. Select UFS Full Disk Configuration again
9. Check ada0 and "next" will stay grayed out, etc.

I would assume that the check field value simply needs to be cleared when "back" is pressed or the value reset whenever the "UFS Full Disk Configuration" window is becoming active. It looks like it's value is retained and confuses the logic when the user returns to that window again.

I repeated this four times in a row, always with the same behavior. My test was in VirtualBox but the problem of my colleague was on real hardware. I don't feel like this would make any difference (it's just Python, right?) but if you cannot confirm this, Eric, I can test it again on real hardware, too, if necessary.
