Description Karl Keusgen 2013-01-28 15:51:17 EST
Description of problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): fedora 18

How reproducible:

Tying to install fedora 18 on a Lenovo S10-3 Netbook. The Netbook is OK, it installs and runs Ubuntu without any problems. The keyboard layout is US Standard.

I tried all available installation medias, such as DVD, KDE Live image and Gnome Live image, 

The life System runs, but when trying to install, it stops at the selection of the keyboard layout at the beginning of the installation process. Pressing the "continue Button" doesn't help anything, the installation simply doesn't proceed.

Plugging in an external keyboard didn't help, as less as selecting any other type of keyboard layout.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Starting Installation from CD/DVD 
2. Selecting the keyboard (English US), used during installation process, pressing "continue"
3. Installation hangs, you can press "continue" a thousand times and nothing will happen.
Actual results:

Cannot install fedora 18

Expected results:

Additional info:

The netbook installs fedora 17 without problems.
