hello first of all I'm completely new to Linux world but i have a good experience with computers and windows especially . lately I've been getting a lot of problems with windows 10 and it's not that much compatible with my computer so i thought Linux is a good choice so what i did exactly : 1- i downloaded fedora on a flash drive plug it in and started Linux fedora 2- tried to install it but it didn't work because i have 4 primary partitions from windows C and D & recovery and booting recovery 3- i downloaded G-parted to make a new partition and moved the recovery partition to the C so now i have : 190GB C - 250GB D - 100MB boot recovery - 60GB new drive for fedora 4- i tried to install it to the 60GB it didn't work it says : ("No valid boot loaded target device found ,see below for details . for a UEFI installation , you must include an EFI system partition on a GPT-formatted disk , mounted at /boot/efi. you don't have a specified a swap partition , although not strictly required in all cases , it will significantly improve performance for most instillation ")

Can you help me please ASAP

The error message actually says it all. You will have to create a /boot/efi partition if you want to install Fedora in (U)EFI mode. It is actually likely that Win10 installation created that already and is using it.
