Parallels 7 cannot install Ubuntu 13.04 with error: Soft lockup

Today I tried to install Ubuntu 13.04 on Parallels 7. But when booting using the installation disk, I got error message about Soft lockup.

Seems that the solution is very straightforward: remove the tick on the "Show battery in Linux" from the dialog of Options > Optimizations.

Credit to the thread from here. That's all :)
