bit different
for Unbuntu from CLI - perhaps Ubuntu expert will chime in to address that.

So ...
not an Ubuntu expert, so ... let's see ...
Ubuntu ... 14.*4*, I'll presume 14.04.4 (should cover well enough
for 14.04[.x]).  You didn't mention "32 bit" (i386) or "64 bit" (amd64),
so, I'll go with i386 (should be quite similar to amd64, other than the
architecture difference).  You didn't mention server, so I'll presume

Let's fire up ubuntu-14.04.4-desktop-i386 (virtually, from my Debian
stable) ...
# virt-install --name=ubuntu-14.04.4-desktop-i386 \
--cdrom=/var/tmp/ISOs/ubuntu-14.04.4-desktop-i386.iso --nodisks \
--livecd --network=network=default --ram=3 --wait=-1 \
--os-type=linux --os-variant=ubuntusaucy --virt-type kvm --hvm
(yes, I have a TEMPLATE file I copy and edit, which then executes that
Error setting up gfxboot
STFW (Search The Fine Web) ...
Just type help and press Enter. It will continue to boot normally.
Not enough memory to load specified image.
<F1>...<F7>... various stuff tried, still no successful boot
Hmmmm, whatever, let's try different Ubuntu 14.*4* image:
# virt-install --name=ubuntu-14.04-desktop-amd64 \
--cdrom=/var/tmp/ISOs/ubuntu-14.04-desktop-amd64.iso --nodisks \
--livecd --network=network=default --ram=3 --noreboot --wait=-1 \
--os-type=linux --os-variant=ubuntusaucy --virt-type kvm --hvm
Error setting up gfxboot
enough 'o my time and (3 GiB of) RAM ... I'll leave it to some
Ubuntu person.
