I can not see error message when create instance fails

OpenStack Dashboard (Horizon)

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.
