Bug Description

Ubuntu-Server 14.04 LTS "Trusty Tahr" - Alpha amd64 (20131204)

Guided and manual partitioning fails to create the EFI partition on Qemu with OVMF (preseeded or not; not tested on hardware) It works fine with an image of Ubuntu Server 13.10 amd64.

TEST CASE:
1. Download latest image of Ubuntu Trusty Server amd64
1. Download latest OVMF firmware from https://jenkins.qa.ubuntu.com/job/ovmf_daily-build_devel_amd64/lastSuccessfulBuild/artifact/artifacts/OVMF_secureboot.fd
2. Create an empty disk image:
$ qemu-img create -f qcow2 /dev/shm/uefi/disk.img 4G
3. Boot it:
$ qemu-system-x86_64 -m 1024 -smp 1 -enable-kvm -display sdl -localtime -net nic,model=virtio,macaddr=00:AD:BE:EF:4F:BD -net user -redir tcp:43827::22 -bios ./OVMF_secureboot.fd -vnc localhost:285 -drive file=/dev/shm/uefi/disk.img,if=ide,media=disk -cdrom ~/iso/ubuntu-server/trusty-server-amd64.iso -boot d
4. Proceed with installation.

ACTUAL RESULT
Installation stops after asking for confirmation to create the new partitions.
