I am trying to make it dual-bootable with Fedora 26. I have made a Live USB with media writer and when I am installing it on the configuration page, it is always giving me "Error checking storage configuration" no matter what I am doing. I have initially used windows disk management tool to create 25 GB of "unallocated space" from my C: drive (boot). This 25 GB of "unallocated space" is shown by the Anaconda Installer but when I click on "Done" it asks me to reclaim space as there is 0 "free space". After which I deleted one whole partition of 175 GB hoping it might solve the issue. But it is still giving me the same problem. I have attached screenshot of the error. 
I tired deleting partition from Anaconda installer which failed to do it and had to do it using windows Disk management (Might be the issue?).
Current Partition Setup : 
I have tried many forums and not able to find a solution to it. This is my first time moving to Linux system and creating Dual-Bootable system. 
Thanks in advance.
