No text displayed when restarting Xenial live image

Bug Description

I think this is different than bug #966480 and possibly more related to bug #1547302 because the monitor back light is on but no text whatsoever is visible on the screen when you select restart from a live session of Ubuntu GNOME Xenial, just a blank screen.

On bare metal I get a totally blank (not black) screen. But once the live DVD is ejected if I press enter the reboot proceeds as it should.
