Unable to boot Fedora 19 on Dell Vostro 3360

Hello all

I bought a Dell Vostro 3360, wich brought a hard drive with Windows 7 installed. The first thing i did was remove that drive and install a new brand SSD drive.

I then burn Fedora Net Install into an USB stick and boot my laptop, booted from the usb stick and installed Fedora normally choosing Automatic File System installation ( i let Fedora choose the instalation mount points scheme).

I boot my Fedora instalation, removed the USB stick first, and then nothing. I get a " Read Error" and i don't even see Grub.

I tried booting into recovery reinstalled Grub but still nothing.

I then switched to UEFI mode, i reinstalled Fedora, i was able to see a /boot/efi parition made by Fedora Installation, but the result was the same. Nothing, no GRUB.

Can someone help me install Fedora on this laptop?

I don't really care if i install it using UEFI or not, i just want Fedora up and running.

Hello all

1 - I then burn Fedora Net Install into an USB stick and boot my laptop, booted from the usb stick and installed Fedora normally choosing Automatic File System installation ( i let Fedora choose the instalation mount points scheme).

2 - I boot my Fedora instalation, removed the USB stick first, and then nothing. I get a " Read Error" and i don't even see Grub.

3 - I tried booting into recovery recovery, reinstalled Grub but still nothing.

4 - I then switched to UEFI mode, i reinstalled Fedora, i was able to see a /boot/efi parition made by Fedora Installation, but the result was the same. Nothing, no GRUB.

Can someone help me install Fedora on this laptop?

I don't really care if i install it using UEFI or not, BIOS, i just want Fedora up and running.

My laptop doesn't have a CD drive, and the BIOS has the following relevant options:

Secure Boot Enabled or Disabled Load Legacy Option Rom - Only avaiable if Secure Boot is enabled Boot List Option - UEFI or Legacy Add Boot Option Delete Boot Option

When UEFI boot is selected i can see two options:

Fedora Network Boot

However booting with UEFI and choosing Fedora doesn't do anything, no Grub no nothing.
