I tried dual-boot Fedora21 Workstation in my laptop which is installed with Windows 8.1. During the Fedora21 installation I was prompted that Bootloader installation failed then later when I rebooted my laptop it dint take me to either of my operating systems... Instead it showed by page with GRUB> prompts... Then I later used my Windows 8.1 Installation Media to recover my Windows. Now I am unable to install Fedora21 in my laptop. Live OS works fine... Please help .. I am a virgin LINUX user .

Make sure you are choosing the UEFI boot option to boot the Fedora media.

I was referring to the BIOS boot menu options - but if you are sure that you chose the UEFI boot option, we can move on. Boot the Workstation live media, open a terminal, and update your question with the full output of these commands: sudo parted -lsudo efibootmgr -v

Hmm... Try installing manually GRUB without the Fedora installation (or using the Android x86 installation to get GRUB). Also, try using all sorts of versions of GRUB.

Hope I helped.
