I had the same problem on that machine and solved it as follows:

when the grub bootloader shows, hit 'e' to edit the fedora entry. At the bottom, you find a line similar to this one:

linuxefi /boot/vmlinuz-4.16.13-300.fc28.x86_64 [...] nouveau.modeset=0 rd.driver.blacklist=nouveau rhgb quiet acpi_backlight=none acpi_osi=Linux acpi_osi=! acpi_osi='Windows 2009'

be sure to add the bold parts now, then hit CTRL+X to run. The system will boot now past the '[ OK ] Started User Manager for UID 1000'. You can install fedora.

RIght after install, on first bootup, be sure to repeat the above step, otherwise it'll crash again right after you type your password.

Then, make the change permanent by modifying (with root):

cat /etc/default/grub
GRUB_TIMEOUT=5
GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR="$(sed 's, release .*$,,g' /etc/system-release)"
GRUB_DEFAULT=saved
GRUB_DISABLE_SUBMENU=true
GRUB_TERMINAL_OUTPUT="console"
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="rd.driver.blacklist=nouveau resume=UUID=b4ff09ec-dfd6-4212-a6db-9ec73b37396b nouveau.modeset=0 rd.driver.blacklist=nouveau rhgb quiet acpi_backlight=none acpi_osi=Linux acpi_osi=! acpi_osi='Windows 2009'"
GRUB_DISABLE_RECOVERY="true"

finally, run

sudo grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/efi/EFI/fedora/grub.cfg

now, on next startup, verify that the grub command line contains the changes. that should do it.

here, again the importanz parts concern nouveau and acpi. leave the rest unchanged. finally, run
