Description of problem:
When Selecting a Windows Operating System in the VM creation wizard there is no indication that Guess Tools have been added to the virtual hardware section. (see design here)
Also: When the Tools are added there is a message with the default interface:
Not recommended bus type. Recommended type is scsi
It is not clear if sata is required and should be left as is or if they should investigate further and select scsi which is marked Recommended.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create VM with wizard
2. Select windows as OS
3. Navigate to Virtual Hardware

This part of this BZ is duplicate of: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1803756
The warning message part of this BZ is solved in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1803756
The part about choosing to mount or not mount the guest agent tools still missing, users can still choose to mount / not mount the guest tools in the advanced section.
Moving to 4.6 because IMHO the ability to choose mount/not mount in settings page is a feature request that we can move to next release.
Since this is more a feature than a bug, it should be tracked in jira. Since the work has already started keeping it here for one more sprint. If it will not converge, I will close and move to jira to properly plan for a release.
Verified on master, It has a checkbox in the wizard general step for mounting Windows guest tools and there is no warning message in storage step.
Since the problem described in this bug report should be
resolved in a recent advisory, it has been closed with a
resolution of ERRATA.
