I shrinked my Samsung SSD 840 HDD to a available memory of 17 GB (on Windows) as it was guided to do on many sites, created LIVE fedora USB, booted it, when I try to install it using automatic configure partitioning, it's showing "You don't have enough space available to install fedora, you can shrink or remove existing partitions via our guided reclaim space tool....". I don't get it. Help me.

Review if there is partition on the free space, if so remove it so Fedora can use it and create its owns.

Well, you have too use your Windows Partition tool and see if there are a partition not only free space, if so you have to use that tool to deleted, Please make sure not too delete EFI partition or Windows one.

I shrinked C drive (in which I have installed Win 10) to available of 17 GB, out of 256 GB HDD. It shows that this 17 GB is unallocated.

THen that should work for you Fedora installation software "Anaconda" should see you free space. But you need to tell it what dirve you are installing.
