I want to dual Boot Fedora on a Lenovo Flex 5 (Model 1570) Windows 10. When Fedora automatically chooses the local standard disk, is the right one in my case?

Windows Partitions: (

Fedora Partition: (

Just trying to confirm, I don't want to wipe my Windows partitions

Note that you'll install Fedora on HDD, and it'll seem slower than Windows on SSD. For start it's ok, later you might want to improve it.

Welcome to ask.fedora! One good thing about Fedora's installer is that it never reformats or overwrites your existing partitions unless you expressly tell it to. If you're not sure, just accept the automatic partitioning because at least you know that your Windows system and data are safe.

Looks goods. Fedora installer sees free space the same size as windows sees an unallocated partition. You do not have checked to make additional space, so Fedora should just install to the unused partition.
