    1. Actually I selected custom partitioning and as I got free space in my
      disk i use that space and I partitioned it for swap and for ext3. I
      selected the default option “Install Boot loader on dev/sda” and
      clicked on Next and the remaining as usual.
      sir,I have a doubt Does it may be the fault in the dvd used.

      • Ok, then it should work. So I recommend you to download another media from here. I use normally LiveCD and customize installation later… ;)

    2. Hello, I see that you have helped a number of people. My problem is that my installation stalls after input of the hostname. The install then just sort of hangs. I have an HP DL 360, 4X2.6Ghz that I want to run as a server. I do not need the other neat graphics stuff in Fedora. I just want a server installation.
      I have a bay of 146Gb SaS SFF disks. Can you assist.
      Thanking in advance.

    4. Hi,
      I installed fedora 16 it works perfect.

      But when i shrink my hard drive to 3 partition.I installed windows xp on partition1.
      installed windows 2008 server on partition2.
      the multiboot is working perfect.

      when i install fedora on partition 3,sometimes after finishing process and rebooting i dont have it in boot menu.i tried it more than 6 times on more than 6 computers and sometimes just before finishing the process i have an error fedora could not create bootloader.

    5. Hi I backed up my windows on a external hard drive and wish to put Fedora on my windows petition D with 390 GB free . When I install Fedora It will show me the windows petitions? I’M new at this and just a little worried I might reformat by accident.
      Thanks
      Tony

      • Hi Tony,

        You can just remove all not needed Windows partitions (like D) before installation, so then you have 390 Gb free space on your disk. Then just select “Use all free space” option and installer won’t remove your Windows partitions. :) Another way is “Create custom layout” and then remove your D partition and use it for Linux installation…

        Btw. you should install Fedora 17 instead Fedora 16.
