Bug Description

Using Virt-manager the Beta2 ISO fails to boot when a UEFI BIOS is selected. 4GB RAM, 8 CPUs. Nothing appears on the console after the Tiancore splash screen.

Here is an image of what it hangs at: http://img.ctrlv.in/img/16/09/27/57e9aae61a86d.png

To replicate, 'sudo apt-get install ovmf'. During the VM setup phase you must set 'Customize configuration before install', then change Firmware from BIOS to UEFI.

I can reproduce this bug on my system with 1 GB of RAM and 1 CPU core assigned to it.

This appears to be a known issue with shim. The kernel does boot OK in a Xenial VM with UEFI installed.

Doesn't affect the test cases.
