Bug Description

When an instance fails to boot, the status can be displayed as "Error" in instances page.

However, I can not see error message from dashboard to find out why the instance can not be started.

It should display error message from "Instance Details" page.

For example:
I can see "fault" field in nova client:
| fault | {u'message': u'No valid host was found. ', u'code': 500, u'created': u'2013-11-27T02:38:21Z'} |

but I can not see it in "Instance Details" page.

I agree that error message should be displayed on details page.

This is definitely helpful, I encountered cases when there is an error in creating instance and no way to find out why it failed.
