    What error is "Error checking storage configuration"?

    How do I tell what error is causing the vague "Error checking storage configuration" message when I attempt to install FC 27 on my HP Pavilion laptop from the liveCd? (I'm doing a custom install using old fashioned standard partitions.)

    In the bottom left corner of that screen. there is a under construction icon next to the words Error checking storage configuration. Click that and a window will pop up giving more info.

    I would guess you forgot an efi partition if you are using efi or your swap space is to small. I haven't used a swap partition in 10 years. If its the swap you >could< ignore the message.

    It didn't give any useful information.

    That's close. To get around the error, I had to enable secure boot in the laptop BIOS and also create the boot/efi partition. It didn't work to install with the secure boot option disabled. By contrast, the FC 19 that was previously on the laptop was sucessfully installed with secure boot disabled.
