Yes, there could be a fine line between "takes to long" and it is
actually hanging.
I remember receiving reports of machines hanging, with ps outputs send
to me of "stuck" processes.

System info column, is irrelevant, we always did that OS scan and
displayed that info the into drop-down for "target device to install
bootloader", we simply added a column to also display it in the table
view.
It did not any extra, processing at all.

Dmitrijs.
