This should be ok.

This is the second report I have received about this problem. This was with a
machine that did not have MSYS etc installed before.
The installer was trying to update MSYS's /etc/fstab but it could not find MSYS.

Was it MinGW or MSYS it said it could not find ?
Where did you install MSYS and MinGW ?

No you have not missed anything and you should not need administrator rights.
I can see an issue in the installer regarding the order it does the MSYS
detect and MSYS fstab update which I will fix.
I would like to know why the MSYS detect failed.
