Hi, I was recently getting the same error. The way I was able to fix it may not actually fix your issue, but we will see! It is only relevant if you are using a motherboard capable of UEFI.

The problem was that when windows installed, it installed in BIOS mode because it is not windows 8. When the fedora installer booted, it booted into efi mode, because it has the ability to. Because you are using windows 7, you will need to force the installer or livecd to boot into BIOS mode.

The easiest way to do this is to create a live boot usb with netbootin. After it is finished, navigate into the USB and erase the file BOOTX64.efi out of /efi/something/soemthing. Sorry, I can't remember exactly which directories, but I know it is located in /efi. This fixed the issue for me.
