    Use the windows disk management tool to shrink a windows partition and free up enough unallocated disk space for fedora. On a new computer I'm usually able to shrink the windows ntfs partition by 50%. Also identify how your machine is partitioned and how it boots (gpt/uefi/mbr/secure boot)

    that means your Windows 10 is installed to a MBR partition scheme but you booted the install media in EFI mode. boot the Fedora install media in non-EFI mode using the boot menu of your computer. look for the entry without EFI or UEFI infront of it.

    I have setup in the boot menu UEFI. I see one more message after I try to install manually.

    Thank you x 100! You solved my problem for me and I didn't even have to ask. I appreciate the add.

    Kamil,

    Here is what worked for me. I had to first disable USB UEFI, then I went and reordered the boot order moving USB/Floppy CD (Legacy) to the top.

    Hope this helps,

    czar
