As per your question, you told that you have "sda5 - 87463 NTFS". How can you say that it is free??? it was occupied by NTFS, so I told you to delete "sda5 - 87463 NTFS" partition first and then create sda5, 6 & 7 to install fedora.

Hi,

This is because you only have 2 byte free on your HDD {Free 2}.

you need to delete sda5 first{E: 85.41GB NTFS Logical (Totally empty, wanted to install Fedora 16 here)} then create your partition table like below,

sda5 - ext4 - 100MB - /boot

sda6 - swap - 2xRAM - swap

sda7 - ext4 - remaining - /

and try to install.

Hello friends,

I am installing Fedora 15/16 (32/64 bit) from burned DVD, but during installation it shows a message, "Some of your software repositories require networking, but there was an error enabling the network on your system".

I have a dial-up internet connection, so I create/configure a DSL connection but it still show me the same error message.

Please help me enabling internet(as every time it try to enable "System p2p1" not DSL connection which I configure), so I can install it on my system.

My system configuration is,

CPU : Intel Core i3 2100 @ 3.10 GHz

Memory : DDR 3 - 8GB (2*4GB)

Motherboard : Gigabyte H61M-DS2

Thanks in advanced.
