A message is already displayed at the end to notify about reboot.

There is no need to "eject" prior that message. It can be done *after* and have
the message explain a little more:

         ... Please remove obstables at the front of CD drive. It will
         be ejected before reboot takes place

This is a simple way to prevent damage to the CD drive.
