Description of problem:
Boot fails (see attachment).
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.
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?
Turns out it was an issue of liveusb-creator. If I use `dd` for creating the live usb it boots fine.
