Yes, you can say 'No' and proceed without a bootloader if you
already have one.

If you mean detection for other OSes, consider that you have installed
a version from 2012, it passes the 6-month test (per-release).  ;-)

What I am trying to tell is that the support to detect other operating
systems in GRUB exists in these days, we need to add the extra support
for our current version of GRUB.

It looks like your (non-free?) wireless card is not supported in the
Linux-Libre version shipped in Dragora 2.2.  The alpha versions of
Dragora contain a more updated base, kernel.  The included series of
the kernel is 4.19.x, currently.

It was my fault, I forget to mention the user and password in the
initial release of the alpha1.  However, the user and password is
mentioned and included in the initial boot menu of the alpha2 (if you
press F1).

A better idea would be to add the autologin stuff by default for the
LiveCD, but I am not sure about security implications.

Your thoughts are welcome,
