That is odd.....

FWIW, my F19 host is 64bit and I'm using the rpmfusion nVidia stuff to drive the host system video.  Also, I've only installed/tested F20 in 64 bit.

When I select Install the screen goes black for about 5 seconds, then goes white for about 10 seconds and then black with scrolling messages.

You have verified the checksums of the downloaded ISO's?
