Dropping to isolinux installer randomly

Bug Description

Testing the Mate desktop ISO for 16.04.2 in a KVM VM (seabios) with virt-manager using spice as display. Most of the times the ISO boots (showing the man and keyboard icons) and then drops into isolinux mode (language selection) without any interaction done.

There were a few (rare) attempts which led to the graphical "try or install" screen, but mostly it does not.

In my experience, that's limited to booting in KVM, and I'm not sure why (spurious keypresses being emulated, perhaps?).
