Collin,

 I just download the 20131016.1 daily live cdimage, and record it into DVD, then boot up from CDRom.

When secure boot is disabled, and UEFI first, it's just hang after the "error: variable 'root' isn't set."

When secure boot is enabled, it will boot up to recovery partition, I can hear the drive noise when select boot from DVD driver.
When it's in the UI of restore, I switch to tty1, you can find my recovery partition /dev/sda1 is mounted as /cdrom.

$ df -kh

/dev/sda1 1.5G 1.2G 279M 82% /cdrom
/dev/loop0 1.1G 1.1G 0 100% /rofs

none 5.0M 4.0K 5.0M 1% /run/lock
none 1.6G 76K 1.6G 1% /run/shm

And from dmesg log you can find the kernel's boot parameter.
