more precisely you have to go to the Custom Partitioning, create your
partitioning which could be to add existing partitions from the
previous installation and uncheck "Reformat" checkbox for your home
partition. Precise steps depends on your target partitioning and your
current one. Please backup your data first, it's pretty easy to erase
your data this way by checking something incorrectly.
No, you have to create a new user. Your username and password are not
part of the /home partition, these are stored in the root ('/') and
that partition has to be reformated but all your data should stay
there and work with the new user.
I don't have experience with the Orca so I can't tell but the new UI
should be able to run the installation from a web browser of your
choice. I think we browsers should have support for the Orca these
days and the support should be much better than what we have in
Anaconda. We can check the Orca support but ideally when there will be
something for testing we would love to hear your feedback if the web
UI will work for you or not.
Just a note, I asked about this issue a Cockpit developer and Anaconda
new web UI should support the accessibility correctly because we will be
using PatterFly which has this correctly set by default.
We have to make sure that there are all pieces correctly set in the ISO
but other than that it should be fine.
