Description

With multiple stage1 locations (boot partition, root file system partition), the installboot is currently picking only one.
Stage1 install may depend on order how the stage2 was detected.
MBR and VBR install messages are different (and therefore confusing).

While preparing the stages, we need to find stage2 first, check if its update is needed and trigger stage1 when it is needed. Prepare every stage as identified.

Testing done: tested on usb image (oi by myself, omnios by Andy and Volker).
