Install of Fedora 20 (full version - 4.4 Gb) fails with error at the beginning. "anaconda: 1032 Gdk-warning, Fatal IO error 0(success) on Xserver :1." Also see 'Pane is dead' at bottom of screen. Have access to logs in /tmp directory but as workstation is not on network and cannot seem to recognize a USB drive, cannot get the logs off to email a bug report. Last line in anaconda log is "Problems running the window manager[Errno 0]SIGCHLD caught when trying to start X server" Last line in program log is "Error running metacity. SIGCHLD caught when trying to start X server" The Hardware has no OS on it at all. This version of Fedora was checked prior to install. This is my first time using Fedora, so any suggestions would be most welcome.

When you boot the installer, there's an option to install in basic graphics mode, under troubleshooting. Try that?
