Ubuntu Desktop 20.04 guest 100% CPU usage

I'm trying to set up an Ubuntu Desktop 20.04 VM.  Eventually, the VM locks up and I notice its assigned CPU in UNRAID is pegged at 100%.  I've tried several times and sometimes I can get the OS installed, and sometimes it locks up during installation.  Wondering if it's the same issue as this?  I've attached my XML and diagnostic info.  Any ideas?

 

Quite a lot of information for Windows guests here, but I'm having trouble finding equivalent information for Ubuntu guests.  I have 3 Windows VM's running perfectly.

 

BTW, I saw @jonp's advice to set UEFI boot mode, i440fx, and setting the CPU mode to emulated.  However, I can't get the CPU setting to stick in the GUI.  Every time I save it but when I go back into the form view it's set to Host Passthrough.

Using Ubuntu Desktop or Ubuntu Server ?   Ubuntu Server works fine for me, but Ubuntu Desktop 20.04 never makes it to the installer and the CPU is pegged at 100%.

Still couldn't get it to boot.  Maybe it's the .iso from Ubuntu, however, I re-downloaded it fresh from the site and tried again and got the same result.

 

Here's the workaround that I used:

 

  1. Created new VM and installed Ubuntu 20.04 SERVER
  2. Once Ubuntu 20.04 SERVER was installed, I installed the Ubuntu DESKTOP components with these commands
  3. sudo apt-get install tasksel
  4. sudo tasksel
  5. Select Ubuntu Desktop selection and install
  6. Reboot the VM you should be able to VNC into Ubuntu 20.04 DESKTOP without issue
