Description

A new menu has been added to the VM creation. Instead of the previous Add button, this new menu now has options to "Add a VM" or "Add a Docker Container". See duplicate-vm-menu.png.

However, these two choices only set the original state of the "VM Wizard type" field in the wizard. duplicate-vm-dropdown.png shows these options.

This new menu complicates things by replacing the simple Add button with a redundant choice that is already in the wizard.

This choice should only be available in one place to avoid user confusion. The previous Add button was simple enough, and the VM type selection was made in the wizard. If there is a compelling reason to have the choice in a menu, like if we only allow one Docker Host VM, then that dropdown field should be removed from the wizard to simplify it for the user.
