i did burned first the fedora 25 kde iso on a usb stick with rosa imagewriter,it all went well til i start the installer and after i made all the necesary settings,when the installer started to write,install fedora,when it got at writing grub,i got and error of something about missing default grub2 something and where the installer halts and i have the option to submit the error and quit,i did submited the error i was thinkin,maybe this iso is bad,so i downloaded the workstation iso and burn it on the usb stick,problem is,same dam thing happened and same error and in same place and i submited that error again now,i have an uefi/gpt pc i could install fedora kde as i wanted but without installing grub at all,as i have more distros on my system,was easy to just let another grub do the job to get into fedora,but i think is not ok,i want to install the nvidia driver,as to me,nouveau is just a piece of crap that actually make me just move the mouse around for a dam refresh so i can even see what i am writing,but i think i have to blacklist the nouvea in the grub.cfg and here comes the problem,no grub installed,no grub.cfg,so,i would love to hear some advices on how to fix this problem if is possible or i have to wait for fedora 26 to come out to can actually install it right and use it ?

I have just installed fedora25 workstation with no problems. how many other distros do you have on your computer? Can you burn on a cd and tryit that way?

if your system bios is set for secure boot, the uefi may be blocking grub. Can you set CSM in the bios to allow legacy boot?
