Actually, there are several ways to reset Hatari:

* Click the "Reset..." button in Hatari UI and then select warm or cold 
reset (you may need to OK exception error dialog in Hatari window too)
* Use reset keyboard shortcuts (AltGr+C for cold and AltGr+R for warm)
* Invoke debugger and use "reset" command

Naturally only first one is friendly to new users.

As to reseting emulation from the shown dialog, I'm not sure
it's safe to reset emulation at this point, emulation may
need to unwind back to main loop before that (like happens
with user requested resets done from keyboard shortcuts and
from Hatari UI).
