Try adding the kernel parameters nomodeset and xdriver=vesa or
xdriver=intel and vga=ask and select any of the 24 bit values offered..
If install is successful  then boot into run level 3 and run Xorg
-configure and adapt accordingly something like..

Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier    "Layout[all]"
    InputDevice "Keyboard[0]" "CoreKeyboard"
    InputDevice "Mouse[1]" "CorePointer"
    InputDevice "Mouse[3]" "SendCoreEvents"
    Option    "Clone" "off"
    Option    "Xinerama" "off"  
    Screen    "Screen[0]"
Section "InputDevice"
    Driver    "driver"
    Identifier    "Mouse[3]"
    Option    "ButtonNumber" "1"
    Option    "ButtonThreshold" "17"
    Option    "Device" "/dev/ttySn"
    Option    "InputFashion" "Touchpanel"
    Option    "MinX" "6"
    Option    "MaxX" "4066"
    Option    "MinY" "163"
    Option    "MaxY" "4023"
    Option    "Name" "unique_device_id"
    Option    "ReportingMode" "Scaled"
    Option    "SendCoreEvents" "on"

You could reopen https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=473101 and
bother to provide feed back when asked for it..
( got closed insufficient data ) if you want to get this fixed..
