Asus G75VW dualboot, Fedora won't boot

Recently decided to install Fedora 17 on my notebook, Asus g75vw. I currently have 1 ssd and a regular hard drive in it and I got win7 on the SSD and tried to install Fedora on the other one via DVD.

I pretty much followed this guide: http://www.linuxbsdos.com/2012/08/01/dual-boot-fedora-17-on-lvm-and-windows-7-on-a-pc-with-2-hard-drives/ but it still won't boot because it seems like my computer can't find any files to boot from. Reinstalled a couple of times and even removed my ssd but still no success.

When I install I always get this error but I do what they say: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Common_F16_bugs#Error_.22you_have_not_created_a_bootloader_stage1_target_device.22_appears_in_partitioning_menu I know it's for F16 but should apply to 17 as well.

I currently have 1 partition for storage (NTFS format) on my HDD but it shouldn't be the problem to why it isn't working?

Thanks
