hey ! I am trying to install Fdeora 19 using USB then install to hard drive. When I try to permanent install it, the installer fails to recognise my existing Local standard disks. I already created a free space of 20 GB to dual boot Fedora 19 along with Windows 8. how to make my local standard disks visible to the installer ? Please help.

When I installed Fedora 19 on an HP laptop that had shipped with Windows 7, there were 4 primary partitions on the machine. Even though I had shrunk a partition to free up >100 GB, the Fedora 19 installer said there was no space to install.

I ended up deleting one of the HP tools partitions, and from there, the installation went smoothly.
