Hi, I'm new to this forum. I have been using Fedora since FCore 5, back in 2006 or so... but not really into technicalities, though.

My first question is that I want to install F28 (Workstation, KDE) on a brand new SSD (32 GB), which however does not show up in Anaconda's "Installation Destination" window. As you can see from command fdisk -l (no idea why it is spelt in German...)

/dev/sdc is recognized and it also should be already bootable (*) - I have used a (checked) DVD to activate it, but during install operations I only see usual hard SCSI disks (I have two of them, data will remain separate on /dev/sdb).

My second question (once solved the first one, of course, and less important than that) is whether it is possible to have WITHIN GRUB2 the chance to boot either from the actual F26 (on /dev/sda1) or from the new F28 (hopefully on SSD).

Thanks a lot in advance!

From the Fedora 28 installer, are you able to see sdc from the "advanced" partition tool (the embedded blivet-gui) utility?

What does lsblk says from Live load?
