For some reason you have nomodeset on your command line remove that. We don't support nomodeset configuration
This is out of the box installation, I didn't change anything.
If I remove nomodeset the systems doesn't boot to desktop.
Well attach dmesg when booting without nomodeset. You can probably ssh in to retrieve it, otherwise attach full /var/log/messages after doing:
boot without nomodeset
boot with nomodeset
attach /var/log/messages files

remove nomodeset and the xorg.conf.
It now boots with r600g when removing xorg.conf and nomodeset, I don't know why a clean fedora install added these.
Because you installed through the "Basic Graphics" option, which disables the accelerated driver.
Don't have done that.
