Bug Description

The testcase http://iso.qa.ubuntu.com/qatracker/testcases/1300/info Needs adjustment.

As per Ubiquity Design Specification [0]: if there is no other input required from the user the button on the "installation type screen" should say "Install Now" instead of continue. Upon clicking it ubiquity should switch to the installation interface (currently it starts with the timezone chooser).

Previous it was a bug that we were showing a drive allocation page & the user couldn't change a single setting on that page.

In practice this means the drive allocation page will only be shown:
* if you have multiple disks
* or doing any kind of "resize & install" / dual-boot installations

Please adjust that & similar test cases.

-- Original Description --

During test of image: http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/daily-live/20120903.4/quantal-desktop-armhf+omap4.img on a Panda board, at Point 7 "Verify that the drive selected on the Select drive list correspond to the drive on the chart (e.g /dev/sda)" of testcase: http://iso.qa.ubuntu.com/qatracker/milestones/232/builds/22473/testcases/1300/results after having clicked on the continue button in the "installation type screen" I did not get the drive on witch to install diplayed, but installation started immediatly after clicking on the continue button, the next screen was the timezone one.
So I am not quite sure now where the installation is taking place.

After installation finished and the Panda board rebooted I found out that the installation took place correctly on the attached USB key.

Ubiquity was "fixed" and the new behaviour is the intended one as per Ubiquity Design Document.
I have opened the task to modify the test cases appropriately & adjusted the bug description.

I downloaded today's image: http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/daily-live/20121001/quantal-desktop-armhf+omap4.img, but when I get to the 'Installation type' screen I do not get an 'install now' button but a 'continue' button (point 6 of testcase:http://iso.qa.ubuntu.com/qatracker/testcases/1300/info).
After this I get the 'where are you' screen that's correct.

@carla-sella yes, becuase that is bug https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ubiquity/+bug/1050044 which was created when I said this one is error in the test case and the button should be "install now" and Nicholas opened the bug about that it's not "install now" =))))
