External Config Locator does not trigger a package sync or clear the wizard, so it does not result in a functional and expected restore
Restoring a configuration via the External Config Locator (ECL) does not trigger a package sync, so if the restore configuration contains packages they will not be installed after restore. Also, the initial wizard still appears.
Reproduce by using a FAT32 formatted USB stick with the configuration in x:\config.xml, present at boot time after installation. The config should contain packages.
