ok i've no idea why fedora is being difficult at the moment, can you download and try installing opensuse from here :- https://software.opensuse.org/421/en

 

if you can install that without problems then that should rule out a problem with your hard drive partitions then we'll try fedora again with luck it will install then.

 

:popcorn:

 

forgot to say leave the 45GB as empty space, before trying to install suse.

you can try any distro you like, (except fedora.  :rofl: ) yes leave the 45GB as unpartitioned.

 

i'm hoping after the 45GB has been formatted with a linux file system and a distro has been installed it will fix whatever the problem is fedora seems to have using that space.

 

also can you do a quick run of fedora live first and run this command as root in a terminal and post a screen shot of it so i can see the partition layout.

 

fdisk -l

ok i take it ubuntu installed with no problems then. :D

 

i'd love to know why fedora was giving you so much problems tho.

 

personally i'd use mint instead of ubuntu if i wasn't already using suse, not that there's anything wrong with ubuntu.

you'll also find they have great support with loads of user help topics written for ubuntu when you do a google search for anything.

When I installed Fedora, I had to select the Partitioning steps and confirm, even when it was set to automatic. Fedora is a little bit confusing, but it is quite versatile once it is configured
