Your suggestion is not useful for me because (from my experience) the
installation gets stopped at PRESS ENTER TO REBOOT at its end indepently
of running fai-chboot -o default or not.

I have to say that I have some errors written at errors.log when
installing (after running fai-chboot -IFv and booting).

I remember having overviewed one script file that was run at the very end
of fai installation (maybe a hook) that did something like this:

If there are some errors then fai_reboot = 0.

Maybe, is this one my actual problem (Having errors at the end)? If I am
right how do I ignore them then?

Thank you for your patience.
