I installed from the friday build and it worked fine - but I got into a 
bit of a pickle with grub when doing an over the top install preserving 
home. I think it messed up a little, then I messed it up a lot by trying 
to install efi grub on a machine that didn't need it. Generally the live 
USB booted fine though, it was just the install that I got wrong.
