I have managed to fix the problem on my own.

In Win7 I erased formatting from E:, making all 85.41GB unallocated.

Upon installing Fedora 16 it shows:


sda1 - 9915 NTFS

sda2 - 141093 HTFS

sda3 - 87463 Extended

free 2

I selected sda3 as Standard Partition, Mount Point "/", File System Type - etx4, and check "Fill to max". I made NO swap file and it installed just fine. Fedora 16 installed used 2.7GB on sda3 leaving me with 80.5GB of free space.

I rebooted, selected Fed16 and 372 updates later it's up and running with NO problems!

Hopefully this will help someone else out in the future.

I have been using Fedora 16 from Live CD for a month or so now and finally decided to do a full install yesterday. Am able to boot into Win7 or Fed16 without any issues. Fedora has picked up and installed drivers for my add-on sound card, wifi, and GPU automatically and I am very happy with Fedora 16!
