After installation hitting enter to reboot the system after cd ejects fails

Bug #1297851 reported by Dave Morley on 2014-03-26

Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
ubiquity (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

I will test a few scenarios with this but for now the bug exists after an install from the live session.

1. Boot from dvd in uefi+sb
2. Select Try Ubuntu from the uefi menu
3. Click on Install Ubuntu
4. Install Ubuntu.
5. Click on Carry on testing at the end of the install
6. Then click on Shut Down....
7. DVD ejects hit enter once removed

I expected the system to carry on with the shutdown

System sat there asking me to hit enter

I couldn't even do ctrl+alt+F1 to get to a tty to continue the shut down from there.

I can also confirm this with Kubuntu + Virtual Box , even after the ISO is ejected from Virtual Box, the machine does not reboot.

This seems to be resolved with the newer iso image 20140326 but will keep the bug open and my eyes open for it cropping up again.

Setting importance to high because it affects not only uefi but all kind of system. In VMs it sometimes reboots correctly but rarely.

summary: - On a uefi system hitting enter to reboot the system after cd ejects
+ After installation hitting enter to reboot the system after cd ejects

Happened to me with an old PC previously with win xp, installed lubuntu from DVD, rebooted, asked to press enter, did so, did not reeboot.
