Default Make it more clear what the purpose of the "Boot" column is (#584811).

I don't really know how this is going to affect zipl. Clicking that
radio button just sets up the drivelist in bootloaderInfo, which really
only appears to change anaconda-ks.cfg and grub configs. It likely
doesn't do anything on any other architecture, but I have not given it a
try to find out.

Also, it's likely that this is the way it was in F12 as well.
