Ticket #10820 (closed defect: fixed)

Text on Summary page in "First Run Wizard" refers to "Finish" button, but the button is named "Start"

When setting up a new virtual machine for VirtualBox, you use the First Run Wizard. After configuring the boot media information, you are presented with a Summary page that tells you to press "Finish" to mount the media and start execution. However, there is no button with the text Finish. Instead, there's one named Start.

See the attached screenshot to see the wizard in context. For searchability, the misleading text is: "If the above is correct, press the Finish button. Once you press it, the selected media will be temporarily mounted on the virtual machine and the machine will start execution."

Customer Impact: Low. Minor confusion, but since there's really only one way to continue, it shouldn't block anyone.

Notes: I noticed this just after installing VirtualBox on Windows XP and provisioning a Windows 98 VM. I didn't keep track of the steps, but I have attached a screenshot, which would make it straight-forward for someone familiar with VirtualBox to locate the problem.
