I was having trouble with "fast" method and opted for this mode. It seems to have worked in actually syncing up the blockchain. As I understand at this point it only downloads the current "state" of the block chain, not the historical receipts of each block. In short will I be able to start mining with genoils now that this is downloaded? I'm fine if it causes further workload down the line for the actual hashrate as long as I get to the next step.
