Bug Description

1. Download the latest iso from http://cdimages.ubuntu.com/daily-live/current/
2. Burn the iso to usb pendrive
3. Boot from the pendrive
4. Complete the install
5. Installation Complete click okay to continue dialogue appears click on okay

I expect a dialogue that reads remove boot media and hit enter to continue

I'm dropped into a tty session that I can't quit or have commands run, pressing enter just drops me down a line.

Simply power off the device if you are stuck in tty then power it back on again.

Tried 3 times to replicate this with Xubuntu - other than once instance of it being a bit 'slow' to get to the remove and hit enter dialogue - all worked as expected.

Tried with Ubuntu - got a cursor in top left corner. No dialogue. Hit enter and it did reboot.

Tried with Ubuntu - got the remove and enter dialogue - however while this instance was installing apport told me that qemu had crashed. ( https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/qemu/+bug/1672531 just in case that's helpful here)

I can't reproduce this at all on my hardware. Are there any common details about where this is reproducible? All on VMs, or all on a particular video hardware that might not be Intel?

I've tried hard in both BIOS and UEFI mode to reproduce this on a Thinkpad X230, but failed. That system uses Intel graphics.

Issue Occurs on XPS13 reliably it happens on kvm with ovmf and secureboot enabled (not sure if that is the difference) Will try on i386 later today again.

I ran into this with the ISO 20170412 spin on both
 - amd64 on a Dell Latitude E6420: Intel i5 2540M + Intel Sandybridge Mobile graphics and
 - i386 on a Dell Latitude D630: Intel Core 2 Duo + Intel 965GM graphicsc

Did not catch it on my desktops however, only the Dell laptops (like Dave above).

This is probably a duplicate of bug 966480. I believe it is a long-standing issue and not new to Ubuntu 17.04. It's been part of the Ubuntu GNOME Release Notes for multiple releases in a row now.

This is a recurring issue that gets solved breaks and solved and breaks and ....

So the new bug is to indicate it for 17.04 incase the previous issue isn't the same as the current issue.

Hopefully there will be a permanent solution for 17.10

Just seen this during an Autoresize install test for Artful, But in a subsequent installation on the same hardware the bug did not occur. I think this might be due to a timing issue: on the first test I wasn't watching the machine closely so the "Installation Complete" dialog stayed on for a while without anything happening. On the second install I passed that dialog quickly.
