Proposing as beta blockerbug per alfa criterion: "The installer must boot (if appropriate) and run on all primary architectures, with all system firmware types that are common on those architectures, from default live image, DVD, and boot.iso install media when written to an optical disc and when written to a USB stick with at least one of the officially supported methods"

Discussed at 2012-10-04 blocker review meeting: http://meetbot.fedoraproject.org/fedora-qa/2012-10-04/f18-beta-blocker-review-2.1.2012-10-04-16.00.log.txt .
The description from 862741: "I have installed Fedora 18 Beta using TC1 Desktop install on btrfs root partition. When I have rebooted into live DVD again, anaconda crashed. See attached log."
So basically, install to btrfs, then run the installer again, it'll barf trying to evaluate the existing install.
Accepted as a blocker per Alpha criterion "The installer must be able to complete an installation using automatic partitioning to any sufficiently large target disk, whether unformatted, empty, or containing any kind of existing data".
