I'm not sure if this is expected or not, but I make the following observations about
the resulting USB stick, which appears to have a bogus GPT according to three utilities.
parted can't fix it.
gdisk then says the GPT is damaged and will not fix/restore the 1st partition which
contains the bulk of the boot data.
gpt bails entirely.
AFAIK this ISO isn't valid, insofar as the GPT is invalid, but I'm not sure if
that relates to the booting problems both computers are having.
I'm going to try making an EFI bootable USB stick using the latest livecd-tools and
the F17-alpha-LiveCD and see where that takes me.
