Hi I try to install fedora 19 with a live cd on my computer alongside windows 7, but when I finish the installation and reboot i get the error "no such partition" so I have to boot into windows cd and recover the regular boot of windows. I tried to install F19 with a live USB before, and the same thing happened, so I tried with the cd and now I just don't know what to do. By the way, the wiki is very very hard to understand and to read, and it has too many information on every page. I think it should be improved. Please help me! Thank you, Yair

How is the partition like in Windows?

Thanks for the reply! The partition was shown as unrecognized in Windows because of it's type. I used boot repair disk to fix the issue and changed the type in BIOS to LBA, and now I can boot into Fedora but there's no GUI, just a command prompt, and I have no idea on what to do.
