that's the file named anaconda-tb-something that was asked on the testing list for help of debuging
Description of problem:
When I try to install fedora 19 TC3 on my laptop with UEFI enabled and with custom partitioning (didn't try other options) it stops when it reaches to installing the bootloader and says that an unknown problem occurred, when I try to file a bug report it says that this bug is a duplicate of bug 947142, but as I wrote here, I use F19 final TC3. So, I hope I don't do here more work for any one by filing another bug.
Just go in the bios of your computer and make it UEFI enabled if it's not and start the installation.
The system is unbootable.

The text that appeared when I clicked the more info option on the window of the nuknown problem
Hard to say with any precision without the system log, but I'm pretty sure this is just another problem with setting UEFI variables in the kernel.
