Installing Fedora 22 from USB on Windows 10

asked 2015-10-20 02:24:45 -0500

I'm new to Linux and now decided to install Fedora on my laptop beside my Windows 10. I have provided about 60 GB free unallocated space for Fedora in the end of my HDD which has 3 drives already. I'm using Flash USB to install. I added /, swap and /boot/efi partitions but it still shows an error which says Add EFI partition on GPT formatted disk mounted /boot/efi. Automatic partitioning doesn't solve the problem as well. I'm sure about EFI mode and mounting /boot/efi but not sure what GPT formatted is.

I'm sure someone else can answer this question better than me but here goes:

  1. The hard drive on any modern computer uses GPT so don't worry about that.

  2. You said your HDD has three drives. I think you mean 3 partitions. One of those will be the EFI system partition, usually a small one (<500M) and formatted with FAT or FAT32. Therefore you don't have to add one, only tell the Fedora installer to use the one that's already there. Sorry, I don't remember the installer screens well enough to tell you how

Hope this helps.
