    Trouble with my Fedora partition

    Hello! I am new to this forum and have found my way here because of a problem I have ran into. First of all, I do not have that much experience with linux and have been learning as i go. Partitioning has given me a little bit of a problem and i think I have booted two different Fedora desktops on my computer. I will upload some screenshots to show what I am talking about. Any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated!

    Think I did a sloppy job with the partitions
    Its part of the learning process. I have done worse when I started.

    If you have a spare disk, and want to dedicate all of it to Fedora, then there is an easy solution.
    The installer is called anaconda.
    After anaconda presents you with the disks on your system, select the one you want to dedicate to Fedora.
    Anaconda will ask you if you want to use the entire disk. Reply yes.

    If you want to start using partitions, then we have to know more about your disks
    are the formatted as for gpt or msdos?
    Generally, look for a software titled gparted, (sudo dnf install gparted),
    get familiar with gparted (it should take you about 15 minutes time). Using gparted you can wipe a disk, create a gpt/msdoc partition, create partitions and format them, resize, create, delete, reformat, partitions.

    I have a 128gig set of disk space that I setup for Fedora
    500megs reserved for bios boot (I have an older system) or efi/boot
    1gig for /boot
    8 gigs for swap
    40 gigs for /
    balance of gigs for /home
    generally you should also reserve a second partition
    for suspend. 8 gigs for swap space for suspend. More about this later.
