  qemu-system-x86_64 version 2.5.0 freezes during windows 7 installation
  in lubuntu 16.04

Status in QEMU:

Bug description:

  I have been using qemu - kvm for several years in different versions
  of ubuntu (lubuntu). I am trying to migrate from 15.04 to 16.04 and am
  having a problem. In particular, on my machine (a samsung series 9
  with dual core i7 processor and 8gb ram) the following commands worked
  in 15.04 but do not work in 15.10 and 16.04. FYI, I tested them on a
  clean machine, where I have created a 60GB image file in its own
  partition.. In particular, I am using the command to start installing
  windows 7 and it works in a clean install of 15.04 (yesterday) but not
  in 15.10 (yesterday) or 16.04 (the day before). I do not get any error
  messages in my xterminal when running this and do not know how to
  check for windows error messages. By not working I mean that after
  loading files it gets to a windows screen and then stays there

  The command lines used to invoke qemu is:
  echo "*** Installing windows 7 virtual machine - Step 2"

  echo "*** Try command for slow mouse"

  sudo qemu-system-x86_64 \
    -enable-kvm \
    -machine pc,accel=kvm \
    -boot d \
    -net nic,macaddr=56:44:45:30:31:34 \
