Seen one the work1.private testbed machine too.
Tried various options as "noapic noipv6" and text mode to see if it was simple.
It's a hard crash in the loader on the images/boot.iso

Still happening with anaconda-
I understand the main repo's are closed for the merger, but this is a major bug.

I am seeing this too. I bult an install DVD from yesterday's (April 8th)
development images and rpms and got the same result as the reporter. This has
been happening less than a week, since I was able to do an install using images
from about April 2nd.
