If your installation was done under UEFI mode and your system try to boot it under legacy mode (BIOS mode), or vice-versa, it will simply not boot. Make it could be that?

I have a Dell Latitude with an SSD drive, and I installed Fedora 19 with UEFI with only a USB Flash disk just today (Before I had it installed in bios mode, everything was working fine, but decided to try UEFI). Everything is working fine with UEFI too. My bios options are similar to yours.

Not sure if you've done that, but (assuming you're ok with disabling secure boot) try disabling UEFI completely, so that a UEFI option won't even appear on the boot list. And then try installing again. That should work.

If it doesn't, then my other suggestion (installing with UEFI) takes a bit more work to be done right:

You may have read that you can't install Fedora in UEFI mode without a CD/DVD drive. That's not true. But I believe it can't be done with Net Install, you'll need the Fedora 19 DVD burned on a USB drive, which is what worked for me.

Steps: 1)Disable legacy mode (bios mode) completely. 2)Download the Fedora 19 install DVD (4.1GB) http://fedoraproject.org/get-fedora-all 3)'Burn it' on USB stick using dd: sudo dd if=/path/to/fedora.iso of=/dev/sdX (substitute "sdX" for your specific usb drive, probably 'sdb' or 'sdc') This should take a while to complete.

4)Boot with the stick and install Fedora.

ps: My SSD drive's partition table is GPT and not MBR, that probably didn't influence a thing, but it doesn't hurt mentioning.
