I don't know why anaconda can't run the rescue mode when
a Live OS environment.
The main thing that is missing is an icon/button on the desktop, I guess.
Though of course Anaconda needs to provide a CLI executable (or a flag to
the liveinst one that is already shipped anyway) for it.
There are some ideas to make install media with separate Live OS and
Install boot menu entries. There'd be a Live OS to use Fedora in a
volatile environment (perhaps one day make persistence an option out
of the box). But you'd reboot and choose a separate installation
option that would be a non-Live desktop, or kiosk mode, environment
for the installer to run in dedicated fashion. In this case the
installer's rescue option could be used, and run through the discovery
logic to assemble the installed system.
But that is exactly what I do not want. I want to be able to use the full
live environment as my rescue environment, e.g., the KDE Partition Manager
that is installed on the KDE Live image anyway.
