I was trying to install F23 in VirtualBox from a live disk and I am stuck at the installation page where it is "Waiting for 1 threads to finish" to start the installation. I restarted the installation again, but again when I get to that page, it gets stuck again! Has anyone (else) come across this problem?

The problem seems linked to the geolocation process which hangs:

If you don't want to wait 15 minutes, you can, on boot screen press "tab", then add "inst.geoloc=0" to the kernel options. Just tested it, it works like a charm. :)

This resolved itself after 15 min. Go figure.
