Description

One of the most common pitfals new users have while trying to install TYPO3 on windows is that they create FIRST_INSTALL.txt file instead of just FIRST_INSTALL.
It is caused by the fact that Windows hides file extensions by default (so users think they create FIRST_INSTALL file, but in fact it was with .txt extension).

I think it would be a good idea to either
- make the install tool also check for file with the txt extension
- or ask user to create FIRST_INSTALL.txt file from the beginning

[TASK] Less strict first install file recognition

Now install tool will recognize all files which starts
with FIRST_INSTALL (case insensitive) as a correct
first install file.

This solves common issue beginners hit on Windows
where files are saved with ".txt" extension,
and the extension is hidden by default.

What would be also nice, to add the link to the wiki for the "FIRST_INSTALL" notice, where we can put some screenshots and detailed instruction how to do that on different systems.
