I am running Fedora 19. I tied to install Fedora 20 Alpha in Gnome Boxes. The installer made it past the splash screen and the I got a irrecoverable error. Then I tied to install Fedora 19 and got the same result.

Any suggestions?



PS: I should have been more specific. I used the same CD to install Fedora 19 on bare metal as I did in the box. I had no trouble installing on bare metal.

You'll want to file a bug against the anaconda component at bugzilla.redhat.com. Attach to that bug the /tmp/anaconda-tb-* file you're getting. If the problem is during installation (and not during bootup, for instance) you should be getting a dialog that prompts you to file a bug and will handle it for you.
