We've talked about this today, and tweaking the error message does not really make it easier to understand.


* Since Beaker now features and Installation tab, we could provide a way to put a better understandable message in the tab to explain why the installation had failed.
* In order to figure out the cause for the error message, Beaker keeps records during the installation which can be queried from the database.
* UI idea: place the error message next to the timestamp which would normally say the status report (e.g. Netboot configured). Maybe add an icon as well if suitable.
