Installation is a one-time process that ends as soon as the system is
installed. Once your system boots you can edit your settings as desired.
I mean, don't worry about what you have set or not in this stage, it's

Okay, so basically your problem is that your USB keyboard does not
respect your keyboard settings, right? You have set a Swiss layout and

can also benefit from the fix :-)
