No matter what I do or pick for install options on ssd,hdd. Fedora 23 workstation keeps telling me it needs more space. I have 2 ssd ( 256gb full, 1tb 456gb free space no OS no nothing on the 456 gb ) . ( 3 hdd ( 2 tb 17 gb free, 4tb, 2tb ). the ssd has id of --> sdb during install attempt. the 17gb free is on --> ssd . I want the swap to go to ssd 17gb. and the 456gb free on ssb to go to everything else. If someone can give me how to do it, I would be very happy. An LVM is ok unless something newer is better. Also I want it to put the boot loader on ssb only!!! Do not touch any other drive for this. All help is appreciated. When I use auto setup, I have trie to options ( Pick ssb 456gb free and ssd 17 gb free ) And the install says it need more space ??????? I also tried just picking ssb andf it still complains about needing more space ???? I have tried using MANUAL setup but it always complains about needing more space?????? ... If anyone knows how to solve it, please let me know. The system itself has 64b gb of ram and 680 nvidea card and 3930K 12 core cpu.

TIA Steven
