Can't install F10 Guest on F11

Description of problem:
Can't install F10 guest on F11.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start virt manager
2. Select create new machine
3. Select Linux and Fedora 10, 1 vcpu, 1024 MB memory, install from CD
Installer gets to the point of "loading vmlinuz" with four dots then does not proceed any further. System is at 100% utilization on the core that the guest is running on. It stayed at this point with 100% cpu utilization for over 2 hours before being killed.
Successful installation of F10 guest.
Windows and F11 guests install and run fine.
I can't reproduce on a fully updated rawhide. I tried the above config using a boot iso, dvd iso, and physical install dvd: all booted to the anaconda text mode no problem.
Can you post ~/.virt-manager/virt-manager.log? Though unlikely, can you verify there isn't an issue with your media?
Created attachment 341679 [details]
Requested virt-manager.log file
Attempted to install F9.
Got to Installation Method. Selected Local CD/DVD
Received message "The Fedora disk was not found in any of your CDROM drives. Please insert the Fedora disc and press OK to retry."
Tried installing F10. Performed a media verification, which was successful.
Continued installation, received "Fedora disc not found in any drives" message.
Discovered that the window is smaller than the installer window, and the "next" button in the lower right corner was being obscured. Resized the window so that I would see the entire installer screen. Was able to successfully install F10.
