Description of problem:
It is impossible to install FC17 on my Ivy Bridge laptop without an external monitor attached or I install using the vesa driver. Attempting to install without any special changes results in the laptop display flashing rainbow colors.
After installation, if I boot the machine with the laptop display enabled the laptop flashes as stated before. (External displays are unaffected.) If I press the power button on my computer, close the laptop display, wait for it to boot and then open the display, everything is ok.
Ubuntu 12.1 and Windows 7 work fine on this same hardware.
The following is a snippet from the X11.0.log (full log attached):
