I've done several install in both physical and virtual machines since the
first alpha. I've tried boot partitions in ext2, ext3 and ext4 (with
different configurations) and never had a problem.
Anyway, tomorrow morning (more or less at 9:30 AM UTC) I'll make another ftp
install using ext4 for boot partitions in a virtual machine and a physical
one. I'll beta2 ISOs unless another one is created by that time and reply
whatever happens, sorry but I can't do it until then... :(
