  [testcases changes] Drive Allocation Ubiquity Page is now sometimes

Status in The Ubuntu QA Website:
Status in “ubiquity” package in Ubuntu:
  Won't Fix

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.
