How did you put the iso on the thumb drive ?
dd if=fedora19.iso of=/dev/sdg1
the bs=512 can be left off - it is the default
where /dev/sdg1 is your usb thumb drive

or some other way

also is the machine you are installing to already partitioned
are you using the partition tool in the installer

i have not used the new installer in 19 very much ( the OLD installer many,many,many times )

go back and rerun the installation
and pay attention to what is on the screen

also read or reread the install guide

it is and has been advisable to just do a minimal install

the very MINIMUM you need !!!

19 is already almost 6 months old , and fedora 20 will be released in a week
there will be a good 4 gigs of updates if you install a full fedora 19 install
