Hi. I was trying to install Windows 10 and Linux fedora 27 on my laptop(msi ge62 6qd)
I installed Windows 10 without problems, but now I cant install fedora.

I downloaded the fedora's live ISO from the official page, and I tried to install it with an USB.

I ran it with the boot menu, and selected live mode:

Then, this page appeared:

But it closed and fedora charged. I tried it, and then I went to install it:

Those where my partitions.

Then I installed it, and when It finished, I restarted my PC. This message appeared, and my PC didnt shut up, so I had to force shut down.
I can run windows 10 normally, but when I try to open fedora, it freezes and I have to shut down. What I can do? I reinstalled it 3-4 times and always its the same case.

I would test the media if you can (ie. it should be an option off the live usb.) From there, are you booting this in UEFI or BIOS?

I think that I am booting with BIOS, becouse when I select the USB, doesnt put "UEFI", but I am not sure.

Ok. That's what it looks like to me (especially with how Windows installed itself) but wanted to check. I would redownload the Fedora media, verify it by checksum, then write it again to USB. It looks like you used something other than what I've seen (a long time ago admittedly) to write it from Windows. I used to use Win32diskimager back in the day- https://sourceforge.net/projects/win32diskimager/

In any case, I feel like that is the best place to start.
