My experience was that the installer started (no mouse pointer until 
after the disk druid) but then the install double faulted activating the 
disk layout -- exception, then exception when "file bug" selected.

Could not save either exception report.

Re-boot showed that some of the partitions had been damaged so a re-
install of F11 is taking place.  Could not properly get Everything and/or 
updates to mount from the same NFS partition as the Fedora Installation 
Repo.
