After I installed Fedora 17, I rebooted the PC and I selected the GRUB screen Fedora 17, but the system does not start, showing the error "No such device" "No such partition" "you need to load the kernel first "... I've downloaded the LiveCD with GNOME twice and I'm still having the same problem. Can anyone help me? I really need Fedora 17 :D

I've only seen errors like this when there is more than one hard drive in the system and through upgrades and such both drives have ended up having Grub installed and the system is set to boot to the wrong one.

After you remove your flash drive, you could go into the bios to see if your system is then booting to your primary drive. I have a situation where one of my machines, after I install via a USB drive, will totally botches the drive order in the boot preferences and I have to go back in each time to manually set my boot drive.

Also, during install make sure you are setting the install to install Grub on my primary hard drive.
