Description of problem:
Boot fails (see attachment).

How reproducible:
Created a Fedora-17.TC5-x86_64-Live-Desktop liveusb using the Windows liveusb-creator and booted the system with it.

Just tried with a Macmini3,1 and I'm having the same problem, so I guess is not machine specific.
Comment 2 Harald Hoyer 2012-05-15 06:02:52 EDT
Boot from the CD, then run these commands in the shell

# ls -l /dev/disk/*
# /lib/udev/cdrom_id --debug /dev/sr0

and post a photo, please.

Seems like a kernel module is missing for the CDROM in the initramfs.

Do you happen to know the cdrom kernel module name?
Comment 6 Mr.doob 2012-05-29 08:29:25 EDT
Turns out it was an issue of liveusb-creator. If I use `dd` for creating the live usb it boots fine.
