Hi All

I tried to install fedora recently, but during installation, it doesn't detect my hard disk. This is my first time trying to install Fedora. Could someone help me with this?

Thank you

ok, obvious question time, does the bios on the motherboard see the hard drive? if so, does it already have an operating system? if that is the case, did you make room, to install fedora?

Yes. I use Win 10. I just tried to boot and install fedora from usb. I did not want to use both os.

Thank you

if it tells you no disks are available, it is because the partition on windows 10 has not been deleted. I know you can manually remove the partition, then let the installer setup the system after you reclaim the space. You should see an option on the installer to make space available, or some wording similar to that. I have not run the installer in a while.

i do not remember, and it might be different in F26 install then was for me with F24 install. You should be able to see somewhere on the installation screen a disk management or disk selection option.
