In order to enable upgrades on iSCSI or zFCP disks, we would also need
an additional wizard screen quite early before the scanning for
upgradable installations and before the scanning of storage devices. On
s390, this early screen should always appear (since you cannot pass boot
options when installing from FCP-attached SCSI-CD/DVD), on all other
platforms its display might be made dependent on a boot option.

seems much more user-friendly without the distracting unused devices

I like the tooltip idea for more details.

I like the context menu idea but I would already be satisfied, if the
selection of an object on the tree (or bar) view was honoured on
selecting create such that I wouldn't have to select the actual objects
as "allowable drives" to create something on again in the popup create
dialog. This might require multi-select on the tree, though. At least
that is my experience with RHEL 5; not sure if this has already changed
