I see same problem on up to date f13.  After complaining about not finding install.img, it allows me to select a drive its on but defaults to directory "/images/" instead of "/upgrade/".

If I correct this path then it moves forward.  I can select partition to upgrade but when I click on Next button I get a hard lock up.

My guess is its mis-interrupting the boot options that tell it were mount points are.

There is a bugzilla report on NFS installs that may be related since it also seems some confusion about boot line options.

I can reproduce this issue, and I've already filed a bug#624971.
