Hi! I am a lover of linux and I wanted to try out Fedora linux. I installed fedora using the automatic partitioning ability (I had left 132 gigabytes of unallocated space so that fedora can fill it up) and the installation went smoothly. When I rebooted my PC, I was greeted with the BIOS (Asus G46VW). When I went to the boot options, the only option I saw was my USB drive. No windows. No fedora. I am now typing from the live fedora USB. When I go on gparted, I see that the partitions are all still there, and all my files are where they should be. It's just that I cannot boot into Fedora or windows. in the G46vw BIOS, there is an option to add a boot option. I do not know how to use this, so if any one knows, please tell me.

If there is another thread about this topic, please direct me to it! Thanks in advance!
