F17 Beta TC2, No Network Available, fail

It appears with TC2 that Updates and Test Updates repos are enabled by default. When the computer or VM do not have an internet connection, the installation hangs after disk partitioning/formatting. If the ethernet interface is disconnected (no cable) then I get a message:

"No Network Available" Some of your software repositories require networking, but there was an error enabling the network on your system.

If I make an network+internet connection, it proceeds, and I see all three repo options enabled by default: disk, Test Updates, and Updates.

Surely after having downloaded 2.3G, this is not the intended behavior and is a fail. It's acting like a netinst.iso. But I don't see a bug filed against it yet. FWIW this is burned to a DVD or assigning the .iso to a VM's CD/DVD device.
