    Post Cannot Install Fedora 27 Workstation ISO on HP Pavilion

    I just downloaded Fedora 27 Workstation on my HP Pavilion Laptop. But when i try to install F27 live USB alongside my Windows 10, there is a problem. I can open the desktop but when I click "Install to hard drive" just show blank screen and then closed not show any choice. I also try terminal command "liveinst" and "sudo anaconda", I have GeForce 940 GPU and have been try install in graphics and netinstall ISO but same problem. I have try any solution anyone here but there is different in error code.
    My Laptop BIOS Insyde F.03, all my hard drive in Basic Disk
    I have tried shrink volume hard drive, change to UEFI mode, Turn off secure boot but still cannot install F27

    Here is the error

    Code:
