I believe you might have hit a problem ... please file a BZ report.

I tried to repeat your test.  In my case, the host is running F12-rawhide with 
all updates applied.  I have a qemu-kvm guest which I created from the F12-
Beta-RC2 DVD and this guest runs fine.

I shut the guest down and connected the cdrom to the F12-Beta-RC2 DVD iso and 
changed boot to the CDROM.  Booting up I selected rescue mode and the result 
hung as shown in the attached jpeg.  I forced a shutdown and changed the cdrom 
to point to the F12-Alpha DVD iso and rebooted selecting rescue mode ... it 
came up fine.
