Mark Partition Active (bootable) is working.

The installer is getting better and better.
Many people see what is. Some people see what can be, and make a difference.

Slightly OT: Of you are setting up a multi-boot scenario, and say Win is not on the primary (bootable) partition, and selecting Makeactive for that boot stanza, will render your PC unbootable next time round, since the bootable partition is now different from what contains the bootloader.

There is a warning to only make the partition active, if Tiny Core is the only operating system.

A very minor thing. I don't know if it matters.

When boot options are typed in when running the installer, it leaves a double space in extlinux.conf.

Do you mean one extra space after "quiet" ?
