I think you met this bug I opened:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=533658
It should have been solved but in rawhide, so ready for F13.
For F12 a workaround: after install and before clicking on reboot
button, you can make an Alt+F2 switching to a console screen and use
fdisk to restore correct bootable flag to your windows partition and
removing the one set up by Fedora.

HIH,

I got the same, fortunately before f12 install I made an image of my xp primary active partition, and use this image to recover, and then the f12 installation finished the last half installation and all OS working fine now
