Text mode installation

Asked by CSRedRat on 2013-09-24

Why in 5% installation installer automatically start in text mode?
Any additional actions it wasn't made, the image was simply selected and the virtual machine was launched. After reset installation already began in a graphic mode. Watched from version 11.10 till 13.10 daily build.

I suppose that this problem not strongly depends on the hardware since was reproduced on different hypervisors and on different releases of OS. You asked a question about the hardware - I responded.

Looks like a lot of faff, any rationale for not using Virtualbox?

I'm saw this video and other.
I'm test ISO in VirtualBox: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ubiquity/+bug/1228089 and https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ubiquity/+bug/1228088
Here a problem not in a hypervisor, and in how the disk/installer boots. I tested load images in the different environments of virtualization, me interests why there is such behavior? It probably doesn't depend on the hardware.
