    Problem installing Fedora 20


    I have been using flavours of Ubuntu (Unity, XFCE). I thought of changing to a new distro and I got a Fedora Complete Installation Disk from a mag. To get used to it, I first installed it as a guest in Windows 8. I liked it and thought of proceeding with installing alongside windows 8.

    I have four partitions in windows 8 (including recovery). Two are primary and two are logical. I had 20 GB unallocated space at the end of the disk. I copied the disk to USB using Linux Live USB creator. I have problems in partitioning.

    The problem is when I try to allocate space, it just shows an exclamation mark and says unable to save configuration. Please get guys. Thank you.

    Boot up the Fedora medium and then open a terminal and type in the following command to get partition information to post: fdisk -l(Lower Case Letter L in the command)

    Out of curiosity, if you already had an installation disk why put it on a flash drive?
    Do you have Secure Boot? is it disabled?

    Sorry for the late reply Guys. The DVD was actually owned by a friend of mine and I made an iso when I got it from him. I am using this to create the USB bootable medium.

    fdisk -l output:
    device boot id sys
    /dev/sda1 * 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT
    /dev/sda2 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT
    /dev/sda3 f W95 ext'd(LBA)
    /dev/sda5 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT
    /dev/sda6 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT

    Also, there was a warning below /sda3 stating that it was starting of physical area.
