Fedora installer 17 fails with unhandled exception ….

If fedora 17 installer fails with unhandled exception, It is due to partition table mess. correct it by using fdisk by using some live cd

fdisk -u /dev/sda or instead of sda, use your disk name

x – to go to advanced options
f – to fix partition order
w – to write partition table.

Boot back to fedora installer
