Currently I have Windows 7 installed in my machine with a 500GB hard disk.

C(52 GB) drive has the windows7 installed.

D Drive contains files which I do not wish to install.

There is 52 GB of unallocated memory.

I want to replace the C drive and use that partition along with the 52 GB of unallocated memory and install Fedora 19 there.

These are the steps that I've followed.

  1. Boot from DVD.
  2. Install to Hard Drive.
  3. Selected English as language
  4. Installation Destination by default has Automatic partitioning selected. I clicked on it and it redirects to Installation Destination page.
  5. Click on Reclaim Space
  6. Select C drive, click on delete click on reclaim.
  7. Then I get this error Error checking storage configuration. Click for details. After I click on it, I get the following details:

you have not created a bootloader stage1 target device

sda5 must have one of the following disklabel types: gpt.

  1. I then go to custom layout
  2. Add mount point / 30 gb ext4
  3. Add mount point /boot 2 gb ext4
  4. Add mount point swap 6gb swap
  5. Add mount point /home 65.99 gb ext4
  6. Click on Done -> Accept Changes

Then I get the following error

you have not created a bootloader stage1 target device

sda2 must have one of the following disklabel types: gpt.

What am I doing wrong? Please help.
