Fedora 17 functions without problems, installed on disk 1 in LVM. The live CD with fedora 19 works without problems, but cannot install on disk 1: the LVM partition fills the disk, so I installed it on disk 2. The last message: bootloader created, restart. But where is this bootloader? Restart: only fedora 17.

You’ve probably installed the boot-loader for Fedora 19 on the second disk, where BIOS doesn’t see it.

Boot the installation disc in rescue mode, and run these commands to install the boot-loader on the first disk:

chroot /mnt/sysimage
grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg    # May not be necessary.
grub2-install /dev/sda

Thanks, Gareth Jones. I followed your suggestions, but somehow there always was a hole in the bucket. Then I realized you wrote: You've probably installed etc. I thought the system did this, but after clicking 2 disks to install and indicating disk1 for booting, it worked. The installation instructions were not very clear about this. Unfortunately Fedora 17 is no longer bootable.
