I've tried Alpha install, and Anaconda was crashing while reading 
a device that contained btrfs, even before trying to use it

it was a bit better with live - I was able to play with 
filesystems without the installer crashing, however, I could not 
install on btrfs as the target filesystem has to match the live 

there may have been some fixes since ...
