Note1: that "ubuntu-bug ubuntu-desktop-installer" went to page refreshing for 15 minutes... Leaving VM up to submit info on...

Note2: VM with same ISO, diffrent KVM Host (i7-2760QM) was successful, but had the older ubunu-desktop-installer UI...

I think it's snap package 'ubuntu-desktop-installer'... On one of mine I tested (KVM Host i9-10900 pass-through vcpu). In the new UI of. At first mine would go to the language chooser, then the 'try/install' panel, but the UI was in a wrong resolution, so the lower parts of the panels were cut-off.

I reported this in Bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu-desktop-installer/+bug/1999560

To get around that, I killed Xorg, which then went to GDM3 for installer user, which got me to the desktop, with the resolution fixed. When it started the installer from there, it was the newer UI installer, which I could then see the buttons at the bottom. Finished the install.

that got me to this bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ubiquity/+bug/1999506

On first boot, the boot hung. Pressing the down arrow got me to the background messaging, where I could see that it started cloud-config and hung on a cloud-init.service start job... until it timed out on fail about 5 minutes later.

It then started a start job on the NetworkManager-dispatcher, which took 10 minutes to fail/timeout.

Where it then started a hold on a boot process cleanup job, which took another (forever). It kept adding time to the counter. I stopped it 30 minutes int the boot process...

Note that the same ISO installed fine on another of my KVM Hosts (as guest) with i7-2760QM pass-through, but that came up with the older UI installer.

This is still a problem on Build 20221219, but is a UI problem.

When the initial desktop comes up, the first 2 panels of the Installer are initialized too large, so that the two buttons in the lower right are cut off. If you look at the previous submitted screenshots, the tops of the buttons are at the edge of the screen.

My work-around is to select hte right button on the language panel, and to select "Try", then the right button, to go to the desktop... After the desktop comes up... Then if the installer is started, it is initialized at a readable resolution.

If I continue to install, instead of going to the desktop, then all the subsequent installer pages are too large to use the controls at the bottom or bottom right.
