This doesn't sound right.  You should be able to boot and run from the
livecd image, whether on an actual CD or on a USB drive, but AFAIK
livecd images *run*, they don't *install*.

Again, experts, please correct me if I'm off-base here.  I'm not
familiar with Fedora images, though I imagine that they operate the
same general way as RH/CentOS images since they all share the same
base code.
