Currently backup utility doesn't allow to backup default template, only user
created one (qvm-clone).
For that purpose I keep list of manually installed packages in template in
separate file and after template reinstall I manually add additional
repositories (rpmfusion) and call:
yum install `cat my-packages.txt`
then apply manual (all two) changes to files in /etc.
Anyway backup of "system" template can be useful feature.

I have the same issue, downgrade to 3.7.4 kernel fixes it. I'm trying to find
out what is wrong.

This is why reinstall is recommended way...

I hope that with R2B2 installing from USB should work much better, especially
USB3.0 should work. Can you just check if installer is booting from USB3 port?
I've successfully installed system on USB3.0 disk, but my system isn't capable
of _booting_ from USB3.0 port, so cannot check this fully...
