Hey there ! First of all, sorry for my english ^^ Secondly, i'm very new to Linux

I tried to install Fedora 22 with Windows 10 on my PC Twice use the same UEFI But i can only boot on Fedora I add manualy the option for Windows 10, but it can't find bootmgfw.efi so he doesn't start (i changed 40_custom then ran grub2-mkconfig etc.) I can see Windows partitions anyway Another problem which is completly different : i can't connect to the internet with my Broadcom BCM43142, that's why i can't show you my terminal output Can someone help me ? :)

Edit : In boot menu, i have Fedora, UEFI OS, another Fedora and the Optical CD reader

You can install to and then install kmod-wl o akmod-wl so you broadcom card work how ever that will work if your Fedora boot with no UEFI secure mode since rpmfusion kernel modules are not signed they do not work on secure mode. Have no experience with WIndows 10 and Fedora so I cannot help you there.

I think i successfully installed rpmfusion (i installed two packages) but didn't understand what i should do after, sorry ^^ Edit : i tried to install akmods-0.5.3-2.fc22.noarch.rpm, but i had many errors as "gcc is necessary", "rpm-build is necessary"...

How did you try to install it? Did you use rpm or dnf? I'm asking because rpm will just tell you what dependencies are missing but dnf will install them if they're available.

I went on the website that aeperezt gave to me, then here : , and downloaded the packages for free and nonfree apps for Fedora 22

But again, i have no WiFi at all, even the WiFi icon does not appear, so i write these messages and download packages with my android device, so it's complicated to install them

BTW, i have the same network card as this guy :

Edit : Just understood your question^^ i used rpm

OK, that's just going to throw you into Dependency Hell. I'm not familiar (yet) with dnf, but there should be a way to install a file you've already downloaded using it. I'm sure that somebody here will know.

No, i disabled Secure mode a month ago

I tried Boot Repair from W10's CD, but it says that partitions are messing :S

And i still have my network problem, which i really don't know how to solve

Edit : Network problem solved, i took my mum's WiFi USB key and installed kmod-wl ^^

Now, when trying to boot on Windows using grub, it says "unknown file system"

Edit 2 : Problem solved : i copied files from Windows/Boot/EFI/ to /boot/efi/EFI/Microsoft/Boot/ and it worked Thank to you two for your help :)
