Anacanda GUI not starting in ESX 5.5

Using the ISO from the blog ( http://www.projectatomic.io/blog/2014/07/new-fedora-atomic-installable-iso/ ) I have installed a few instances in VMware Fusion on my machine. When booting the image on ESX 5.5, the GUI does not start. There is a blank screen after the kernel logs and the screen clears to "Starting Anacanda." The checksum of the iso validates successfully.

I was able to install under VMware workstation by selecting the boot.ISO and then 'Fedora 64-bit' as the OS. Any other setting would result in the GUI not being displayed.

This may be a bug in Anaconda or Fedora, probably not specific to Atomic. Have you tried a regular rawhide ISO? I don't have access to ESX 5.5 or I'd try to verify on my end.
