Can you try this again with the preview release and if it still doesn't work, get a picture or see what the last few lines on tty3 are?
Comment 2 Gerry Reno 2009-05-04 02:06:11 EDT
This still happens with F11 preview but intermittently.  For this issue I'm going to chalk it up to a problem with these Liteon DVD drives.  We've been having problems with every release since F7 with these drives.  F7 is the last release that will drive these DVD drives without problems.  Please close this bug.  There are other issues with F11 anaconda that I"m going to put in a different bug.
