Failed to boot when install ubuntu16.04 beta2 desktop64 with EFI boot in Vmware ESXi

Asked by vmware-gos-Yuhua on 2016-04-06

 I insatlled Ubuntu16.04 beta2 desktop (64bit) with EFI boot on a VMware ESXi.
When finish installation and reboot, I notice this on boot:

/dev/sda2: recovering journal
/dev/sda2: clean, 184027/950272 files, 1023281/3801088 blocks

And then it hangs right there

It happens every time I reboot the VM.
I reinstall the VM Ubuntu16.04 beta2 for three times in different VMware ESXi version and I always encounter this issue when rebooting.

If I install the VM Ubuntu16.04 beta2 with legacy bios boot. this issue won't happen.

Is this something I need to be concerned with?

OK great. Why do you want EFI boot in a VM?

Can you help with this problem?
