Description

I'm testing the new UI with a FreeNAS system updated to the latest Nightly version.

I opened the VM creation wizard and got to step 4, Hard Disks. There is a selection between "Create new disk image" and "Use existing disk image". I chose "Create new disk image" but was a little confused by the "Select a pool or dataset" field, which includes a "Browse" button. It may be a good idea to clarify that this field is used to choose the pool to store the zvol that will be created and not to select an existing pool/dataset to use for vm storage.
