I had this problem as well, on the x86_64 arch, for one of the late 
alpha or early beta builds. I did the install on a brand new hard drive. 
A few weeks elapsed, and I downloaded the release version of 14 -- the 
x86_64 DVD iso. I've just installed from this as a URL installation 
using the same hard drive that had the earlier build. I did an "use all 
space" installation and because I like encrypting my systems for added 
privacy, I had to supply the passphrase for the earlier build.

I can't remember whether the problem Rahul documents then happened to me 
on the release installation. During the install process I specified 
using the Fedora and Fedora updates repositories. So I got the latest 
versions of (everything that was updated) at install time.
