At first I didn't see it, but looking at it as quoted by somebody else, it
seems familiar all of a sudden. First, do all the partitioning you need.
After that, when asked (again) to select a drive, don't select any. Just
use TAB to get to OK without any disks selected. This ought to get you out
of the "loop".

All right, that does it Bill [Donahue]. I'm pretty sure that killing Jesus
is not very Christian.
