Interrupted upgrade from FC6 to F7 T4

Description of problem:
I am writing this report but I can not reproduce anymore the result.
I used the dvd version to update my laptop from an existing FC-6.

(I waited more than an hour). I changed to vt2
where I saw (using top) that some of the programs that usually run in the
post install stage were running. After waiting for more than an hour only
anaconda was running so I decided that it was time to force a reboot.
What is strange about this is that the package that anaconda
complained as corrupted about
was correctly installed (redhat-lsb) and the media check to the dvd returned
an OK. According to the last report left in the installation log there was a
problem running a postinstall script in other package before redhat-lsb was
I have used yum to update the system and everything seems to work as
it should. The only problem of the interrupted update was that no xorg server
was installed. After installing xorg-x11-server-Xorg everything works as
expected. package-cleanup helped to remove the duplicate files and to
determine the possible problems.
As I said since this machine is updated I am not able to reproduce the
problem but I am available to give further details if necessary.
Regarding the computer it is a laptop, HP Compaq nx8220 (i686)
The redhat-lsb package got fixed this morning which should hopefully help here.
The other part of the problem is that your media may have been questionable
