Bug Description

While testing OEM install, the live boot, vendor update boot, and boot to end user setup worked fine. After entering credentials and performing final user setup, the subsequent reboot resulted in a terminal login prompt. After logging in at the prompt, startx was required to continue the boot process.

All subsequent reboots have been fine.
