I tried to install Fedora 4. After giving all the options it starts installation, but halfway through (after using just 1 CD out of 4) it says installation is complete and reboots the system. After the reboot, there is no Linux option and Windows start.
press delete and startup and configure your BIOS to boot from linux partition.
if u didnt make a prtition for linux ur screwed go and make one now quickly with norton ghost then instlal again then press del @ startup then configure bios to boot form your linux partition and also debian owns fedora get debian it completely is the best linux evah.
Hi, I have a Linux partition on which I was installing it. If u mean Boot partition, then I don't have that one for Linux. I have NTFS on C: Drive with WIN XP. Is it the cause of the problem? and how to make a boot partition for linux without Norton? (I don't have it). I have partition magic.
you have to install a bootloader, when you installed Fedora have you confirmed to install grub (the bootloader that came w/ Fedora CD)?
You need it 'cause the bootloader that came w/ Windows doesnt see linux partition
ibay, I have to know some more things before I can tell something.
is there any information about errors or just reboot without any visible errors?
are you using "Recommended" or "Full" install of Fedora? if yes try to use "Minimal" or something similar.
if it comes to partitioning, I generally use only two partitions for Linux, one swap and one for "/" filesystem (sometimes you can use another partition for "/home" but I prefer to do it on some other HD. then I install bootloader Lilo in MBR (master boot record) and it works for me.
