Incorrect names for hard disks in Boot Menu

Description

SATA disks are labeled "Primary Master/Primary Slave/Secondary Master/Secondary Slave" on the boot menu (opened by pressing F12 while starting the virtual machine).

They should be called SATA Port 0/Sata Port 1/... like they are in the Storage panel in Settings.

I understand this request but actually the BIOS can only handle IDE channels. Therefore the SATA hard disks are mapped to IDE drives, see #1676.
