Hello ashucse13,

You said two different things in all of that. At first you said you shrank the Windows partition creating 17 GB of unallocated space (the usually recommended thing to do). But then you said Fedora will not install "on that unallocated partition". So is the 17 GB unpartitioned space or not?

If it is free unpartitioned space as you first implied, then the "Use free space" partitioning option will work. But if it is actually an empty partition as you later implied, then you need to choose the "Create custom layout" partitioning option. The very next page is the so-called disk druid (a kind of partition manager) with which you can either "Delete" and create a "New" partition(s) for Fedora, or you can "Edit" the partition to reformat it to a type that Fedora can use. Either way, but it matters what is actually waiting there now for Anaconda.
