Trying to do a test install of F17 in VirtualBox the Beta-RC3 netinst.iso
(and the development/17/x86_64/os/images/boot.iso) fail in a wierd way.

to the boot command brings up the installer and it goes through the disk
After confirming the "write to disk" it creates the devices, and starts
to make the
filesystems.  In the middle of the 2nd mkfs the screen freezes.

Examining the various VTs shows that the mkfs finishes for all the
but it won't proceed into the select repo phase since the screen is frozen.

There doesn't seem to be an entry in the Test Matrix for verifying the
or boot.iso  (or for installing in a virtual guest).

Just posting so someone will see the problem.  Should I file a BZ?
