Further update--tried a few different things, such as adding a /boot
partition, but nothing worked. Same problem. I then used the files from
alt/stage/12-Alpha-RC2 with my original layout, that of a single ext4
logical partition and it was fine.  So the problem seems to be in the
latest contente of os, that is, the one at downloads.fedora.redhat.com

Spike: We like to talk big... vampires do. 'I'm going to destroy 
the world.' That's just tough-guy talk. Strutting around with 
your friends over a pint of blood. The truth is, I _like_ this 
world. You've got...dog racing, Manchester United. And you've 
got people. Billions of people walking around like Happy Meals 
with legs. It's all right here. But then someone comes along 
with a vision. With a real... passion for destruction. Angel 
could pull it off. Good-bye, Picadilly. Farewell, 
Leicester-bloody-Square.
