Hi Dear friends,

I have tried installing Fedora 22 along with windows 8.1, However, the partitioning did not work out. So i ran a terminal command and learned that its in "UEFI" mode. When checked whether its in " GPT" or "MBR" , It says, " MBR only".

Now, I have no idea how to boot the Fedora live disk in legacy mode for installation. Please help.

I have attached the screenshot of the terminal for your reference.

Expecting a response from you soon.

Normally put Windows 8 on a GPT partition. But your screenshot shows that MBR. Do this:

  1. Insert the USB stick drive with Fedora
  2. As soon as you turn on your computer, RIGHT click (times 100):) press F12 or F11 or F10 (depending on your BIOS)
  3. You will have a BIOS menu there will be your WITH TWO items: "UEFI USB stick" and "Stick"
  4. Choose the SECOND option: "Stick" and install a system in the MBR. (on screenshot THIRD line )
