I'm trying to install Fedora 18 using the x64 Live Media iso, first I burnt it to a USB thumb drive using the windows USB tool provided within your wiki but after it booted up it gave me some type of kernel panic right after the balloon with "F" Letter was filled, so I gave up and went directly to Vmware and tried to install it virtually and try it for now but I always get in this situation with the installation windows very huge, can't reach the button, the button is inactive, no details about what are the bending problems and how to solve them! any suggestions?

Can you paste the kernel panic which you are getting here ? Although there are least chances, but may I know you are on which desktop/laptop ?

From that screenshot it appears that you did not complete all configuration steps.

The new installer allows you to start the installation before you've set the root password and before you created a user account.

There are buttons to do that while the packages are being installed. Once you've completed those steps you should be able to complete the installation and reboot into your new Fedora installation.

You may usually Alt-drag windows eve if they have no title bar or it is off-screen. Press Alt key, then mouse click anywhere IN the window. You should be able go drag it.
