Is this on a USB stick with persistent /home? If so, then you'll also hit problems if
the file is too big to fit into there.
But the most likely is that the in-memory overlay is being exhausted. Fedora will create a
temporary overlay in memory to handle writes to the filesystem.

I noticed that when I copy a large file into /etc/skel during %post
my ISO is created correctly but crashes on boot up. The crash happens
when liveuser is being created and the large file in /etc/skel is
copied to /home/liveuser. If I boot into single user mode first and
delete the large file from /etc/skel and then "telinit 5", liveuser
is created and everything works correctly. I tried to rebuild the ISO
using a larger root partition but still got the same problem. If I
copy the large file to /usr/local there is no problem.
Does anyone know if there is some sort of size restrictions on files
added to /etc/skel ?
If the file is so large that copying it runs you out of memory, that could
potentially be your problem.
