I have installed Fedora 16 from a USB memory stick. After installing, which seems to work just fine, and after rebooting I end up in the BIOS. I can not find which BIOS settings to use and have not succeeded by using common sense.

Could there be a problem with the partitions?

The live version from the same USB device works fine.

has anyone come across this problem and knows how to fix it?

So you don't get past the BIOS screen? You need to configure your BIOS to boot off the hard drive on which you installed Fedora. I assume the installer installed a bootloader like GRUB? – user13742 Mar 18 '12 at 19:33
