Unhappy Resolution!

Okay, to start i am a TOTAL NOOB with linux... so make it simple okay?

I am going to install fedora15, and it loads... It goes up to the bar loading across the screen but then it says "Format Not Supported" on my Phillips 17 LCD
How can I fix this?

Info:
LCD Phillips 17" Inch
ATI Raedon 3000 (might be HD)
Native Res of 1360x768 with 60 hertz.
Total Noob (see above)
AMDx64
CD installation
Windows Developer Preview (8) as my Windows.


Any Help?

Re: Resolution!

Well, look at your system OS symbol and you know why
Nah, just kidding.

The LCD is your monitor, thats pretty much not an issue, because if, you couldnt read that format is not supported.
More required information would be the output of lspci.

Further it would be interesting to know, are you installing from dvd install or from a live media?
How many harddisks do you have?
And whats the setup of your harddisk, lsblk will report some information.
To wich one do you want to install Fedora, do you want dual boot or linux only?

A side question, did you get your computer along with the Win8 beta (unlikly), or did you buy it with win vista/7 some time ago?

Not sure what you mean, but I downloaded 64 bit Gnome from here: http://fedoraproject.org/en/get-fedora-options

When I got my computer it had win7. I completely overhaul it for win8 (I made a partition for it to install in, but it didn't give me a choice :|)
I think i have one hard disk. I want to dual boot please. I tried ubuntu but it wouldn't detect Win-8...
I dont know what the output of Spci is or what SPCI is...
Sorry for noobiness... I am good with computers but this is my first time with linux.
Where is LSBLK, Is it a command prompt command?

P.S. Windows 8 is not poop, It works pretty good!
