Hi everybody

Good news about forcepae :-)

Just put the forcepae option after the "--" entry on the installer
command line and it will be copied to the target system. The "--" entry
defines the boundary between options which are specific to the installer
and ones that are copied to the target system.

I did not know the function of -- and I think many people need to be
informed about it.

See this link for the 'whole story'


I have tested, and I can confirm that it works :-)

Best regards
