FC17 32bit install fails with dracut dropping to debug shell [SOLUTION]

Error message is

dracut Warning: Unable to process initqueue

dracut Warning: /dev/disk/by-label/Fedorax2017x20i386 does not exist

dracut Warning: /dev/mapper/live-rw does not exist

this is from an ISO downloaded from the Fedora Project site and it is 32 bit DVD install NOT the Live CD.

solution: change boot line options

Original line is

vmlinuz initrd=initrd.img root=live:CDLABEL=Fedora\x2017\x20i386 quiet

change it to

vmlinuz initrd=initrd.img root=LIVE:/dev/sr0 quiet

and it should work err well it works for me.
