Bug Description

I'm installing a fresh 16.04 beta 2 server into a virtual server (vmware), at the keyboard layout detection, ubuntu is unable to detect the keybard layout. I've tested with the french installation language and locale, and the english one, the result is the same...

Is it a known bug ?
