I downloaded the Core 7 DVD iso, burnt it to CD. It tests fine, and installs fine. After the files are installed and I press the 'Reboot" button, I get the following screen:
Attempting to start native X server...
Waiting for X server to start... log located in /tmp/ramfs/x.log

Once the computer reboots, I get an error stating that Windows cannot find it's system file. Fedora never attempts to boot up. I never see anything abour Grub, even though I've told it to install. I've tried installing 4 times now, each time trying different partitioning options, each time telling it to format the partitions.
I want rid of Windows XP completely - should I fdisk from DOS first? Can anyone help me here? The two errors listed appear to be RAID errors, but RAID is disabled on my motherboard.
