Yes, but not having done a fresh install install since I fixed the issue
the longer way, I wasn't sure that would work for the OP.  

Note that I suggested trying that first.  :)

I repeat, it would save many people a great deal of trouble if a mention
of this is put somewhere near the alpha downloads.  As it is, I suspect
we'll get many posts like this, because what people tend to do,
especially with some experience, is grab the ISO, install and then run
yum update or upgrade. 

Even those on the list probably don't read every post, so can't really
be expected to know about this.

Willow: I knew it! I knew it! Well, not in the sense of having 
the slightest idea, but I knew there was something I didn't know.
