On the first setup page, the already selected files for the product key and advisor file are 'forgotten' in case one of the passwords entered does not match.
Then one has to select the files again.

How to repeat:
1) install new server, start, open browser for first time setup
2) select files for product key and advisors
3) enter user / passwords, but mistype in the 2nd admin password fiels
4) click "complete setup"

... and see that when showing the error message "passwords does not match" the 2 file name fields are now emtpy.

Suggested fix:
keep already selected values although an error is shown

You cannot set a file input for security reasons. If you could, a web page could fill this out for you and use javascript to submit a file from your machine to the web server.
