Bug Description

During the installation with multiple Ethernets, the installer should provide some extra information in order to allow the user to choose the right one.
The bare minimum are: MAC address and hardware type. Also the carrier status would help.
Especially with server installation, when multiple Ethernet ports are the common standard, unless they are named like eno1, eno2 ... enoN, it's rather difficult to identify which port is to be used, as in enpNsM schema.
In case of error, one is required to reboot and restart the server installation for another try.
