I made drives like this :

  /       10GB
  /home   37GB
  swap     8GB

but there is an error :

  you have not created a bootloader stage1 target device.
  you have not created a bootable partition.

what should I do?

  • With the changes you made per the one answer would you mind updating your Q to show what you're currently have setup now? thanks. – slm Dec 18 '13 at 16:14
  • What exactly have you done in the installer? It's important to be precise. Tell us the exact title of the screen you're at, what buttons you pressed on the previous screens, etc. – Gilles 'SO- stop being evil' Dec 18 '13 at 23:29
  • how did you solve this? I'm also facing the same problem. – ian Feb 4 '14 at 4:18

Finally I myself solved this problem, I use the Fedora 20 live disk application to change disk partitions and after this it works. Without creating /boot or something like that.

  • Do you have more details, I am not sure I could reproduce that solution and that could help @ian out who commented on your question. – Anthon Feb 9 '14 at 7:16
  • You need 2 primitive partition and this error is for that.One for / partition and another for create extended partition for your swap partition .and if you have any other free extended space for swap (for made a logical partition),one primitive partition is enough. – Elyas74 Feb 9 '14 at 10:57

Create a /boot partition, 500 MB would be more than enough, and format it as ext3.

  • I create it ,but make no defference. – Elyas74 Dec 18 '13 at 15:06
  • Mark it bootable in fdisk. – casey Dec 18 '13 at 15:06
  • There's no need to have a separate /boot partition unless you're using a partitioning scheme that the bootloader can't read (e.g. an encrypted root partition). It wouldn't help anyway: what needs to be done here is arrange for the partition containing /boot to be bootable (whether it's / or /boot). – Gilles 'SO- stop being evil' Dec 18 '13 at 23:29
