Bug Description

I'm unable to boot into live mode with Lubuntu 16.04 Desktop i386 final. I tried Ubuntu Mate 16.04 Desktop i386 and Lubuntu 15.10 Desktop i386 too and both worked.

What I expected to happen:
Lubuntu should boot into live mode.

What happened:
After I selected "boot into live mode" and pressed Enter, there was only a blinking cursor and nothing happened.

I tried it again without "quiet spalsh" and these are the last six lines above the cursor:
[ OK ] Started LSB: Start NTP daemon.
[ OK ] Reached target Multi-User System.
[ OK ] Reached Graphical Interface.
[ OK ] Started Stop ureadahead data collection 45s after completed startup.
       Starting Update UTMP about System Runlevel Changes...
[ OK ] Started Update UTMP about System Runlevel Changes.
