I have compain a simular issue a few months ago on this 
mailing list.

The issue is, that anaconda is unable to install grub2, if
you have put the /boot partition in a LVM.

The only workaround nowaday is to install Fedora without
installing the bottloader. After the installation you have
to boot from a rescue media and install the bootmanager
after chroot to the root partitition in the LVM.

Booting a system with /boot in a LVM works fine in F17 for me.
