I am trying to install Feodra 25 workstation in this sytem .but i can't.. i tried using fedora media writer..when system restarts an error comes "the selected boot device enter to continue". I tried installing other linux OS but failed.. Also,while managing boot options no legacy support option comes in BIOS only UEFI MODE comes. I would like to have windows and Fedora OS both in my system,.. Please suggest some methods.

I can't exactly answer your question, because I wiped my drive and installed Fedora as the only OS. But I had no trouble at all installing Fedora 25 on my HP Probook 450 G3. I allowed it to keep using UEFI and, to my surprise, it installed with no fiddling in the BIOS except selecting the USB stick to boot from.

This CPU might only boot 32-bit OS. Which image are you using? (What's the filename?)

This shows how to find out if the computer is using UEFI or BIOS firmware. If this computer uses UEFI, and it's also 32-bit, there isn't a supporting Fedora image that will boot it. It'll need a custom build of GRUB2 for 32-bit UEFI.

I once tried to install a 64 bit OS in my 32 bit laptop, I clearly remember it showed an error where it asked me to choose the right image for the laptop.

I think you should switch off the secure boot in BIOS. Try to look for a secure boot option.

I had this problem too when I first tried to install Fedora on my laptop, switching secure boot off fixed it for me.
