It went to the REBOOT and started upgrade but after upgrade complete it would only boot into F17 and would go to the login , can't login as user or root, it comes back to the login each time after entering user name and password.

Running fedup from F17 to upgrade to F18, Is this the correct procedure ?
All I have is a live-dvd-KDE.iso, how can I find a iso that will let me upgrade my KDE desktop.
And I get the below Error message.
# fedup-cli --iso /home/jim/Downloads/Fedora-18-i686-Live-KDE.iso --debuglog=fedupdebug.log
setting up repos...
Error: can't get boot images.
The 'fedupiso' repo was rejected by yum as invalid.
This the only thing in /var/log/messages when fedup-cli is run;

Reason: //Post-merge clarification
The files downloaded successfully to /var/tmp/fedora-upgrade.
I rebooted and selected the Upgrade option. But, the upgrade failed at the scanning stage, dropping me into a shell. Options were continue with Ctrl-D, or log in as root for maintenance. Logging in as root, mounting partitions and then exiting the shell did not resume the upgrade. But, fortunately the boot process continued using the Fedora 17 kernel. I was able to login and achieve the desktop.
Determined to avoid starting over from scratch, I opened a terminal, logged in as root and used yum to get the downloaded Fedora 18 files installed and Fedora 17 files removed.
Tried the commands below that returned errors reporting version mis-matches.
Once all files have successfully downloaded perform the following steps.
Before rebooting into the Upgrade I'd recommend the following:
Open a console/terminal.
Log in as root.
Change to the file system where the update files have downloaded to. This file system no longer exists on my laptop post upgrade, so you'll have to locate it yourself. I am guessing, but it may have been in /var/tmp/ .
then at the prompt:
'yum install ./<kernel-name> to make certain the Fedora 18 kernel is installed before rebooting. You may encounter error messages informing you of missing dependencies or conflicts. All I can say is try to resolve these issues before rebooting into the Upgrade option.
Check to see which kernel version is set to boot:
If Fedora 17 kernel is still the default:
'grub2-set-default 'Fedora Linux, with Linux 3.9.4-200.fc18.x86_64'
Desired output: saved_entry=Fedora Linux, with Linux 3.9.4-200.fc18.x86_64
