I experienced a similar problem here. My computer has got a ge force
card. The cause of the problem was a bug in the installation disk
kernel:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=242229

This bug is already fixed and there is already a respin of the
installation dvd, F-7-x86_64-DVD-unofficial-respin.iso, but not for
i386 architecture's. Are you trying to do a clean installation or an
upgrade?
