Yeah, I'm afraid not. I'm not sure there's anything beyond beta2 for you
to experiment with :-(  I think you should be able to install a beta2
guest though, you just need to switch to a different virtual terminal to
see the progress. Or use a text-only or vnc (vnc connection to anaconda,
not virt-viewer vnc) mode install.
