Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Previously the 'progress page' allowed pressing the F2 key to drop to shell. If the F2 key was pressed repeatedly when starting the hypervisor installation, the action could cause the hypervisor installation to fail. The F2 key is now disabled when starting the hypervisor installation, after the installation is finished, the F2 key is enabled again.
