I'm new to fedora and this is my first post here on fedoraforums
Well I downloaded the DVD ISO, burned it and installed fedora smoothly, but at the end of the installation and after rebooting a message came on the screen saying :"No bootable device found, press F1 to retry again, F2 to go to the system setup or F5 ... "
I installed it on a Dell Inspiron 6400 with 2.0GHz Core Duo processor, 1GB RAM and 120GB HDD partitioned as follow:
40GB -> Windows XP (NTFS)
200MB -> /boot (ext3)
20GB -> / (ext4)
2GB -> /swap
50GB -> used for my personal stuff (NTFS)
During the installation of GRUB I set it to be on /boot partition rather than the MBR.
I tried using the Rescue Installed System option from the DVD and wrote fdisk -l, It showed me the partitions with the /boot partition having (*), which - i guess - means that it is the active partition and my system should boot from it. but It didn't.
When I couldn't figure out what to do, I used FDISK from my win ME startup cd to make the 1st partition (C
active so that I can log into windows . And here I'm back to windows and it's operating as it did before the installation without any changes.
So the question is, why did this message appear? and how can I fix this problem so as to use F11
thanks in advance
