I too sit and watch for this so I can hit: "N" to speed things up.   There have 
been times that I have canceled it only to get a failed installation.   After 
allowing it to run next time, I determined there was a hardware issue or 
something else.

I agree that I don't want to wait (majority of installs) for the message to 
cancel it but .. it would be nice to know I can allow the test if I wish.

Could we leave it in and just change the default to "N" instead of "Yes" so the 
option is still there? ( and maybe a little more informational verbage too.)

...  and maybe some attention getting text like:
