And also:
" local variable 'e' referenced before assigment "

I actually don't know where to start anything about linux or fedora, i know nothing about it.
Can you help me out here?
Thanks in advance.

Any particular reason for going with Fedora? There are definitely other ones that are more for a new user to Linux.

Ah okay, no problem, makes perfect sense. I currently can't see your posted pics (at work), so I'll take a look when I get home.

 

Also, while you wait. Are you installing it on a spare computer, on your main computer and dual booting? How are you going about doing this?

I just tried booting up virtualbox so I could show you... but its not liking fedora 23 at the moment... so. It looks like your main issue is not having a valid root partition (the " / "). When you choose what partition you want to use, make sure you set that partition to " / ". That should then take care of everything else underneath it. The root level is the highest level.

 

See if these instructions help you out at all.

I have Fedora 23 installed on my computer right now. Just scroll to the bottom of the page that you are posting pictures of and add a mount point by clicking on the plus sign. There is a drop down menu on the left hand side of that page that has the destination for your installation. Click on the destination that you want then scroll to the bottom of the square on the left hand side of the screen and press the "PLUS" sign and then you will get new options.

Yes, right now I am struggling to install a copy of CentOS, I've had no luck yet. I think it uses the same kind of installation GUI.

Yup CentOS and Fedora use the same install GUI (or whatever you want to call it). Both based off RedHat.

Okay, got Fedora up and running on Vmware (doesn't like Virtualbox for some reason). 

 

I'll post the steps, hopefully this helps if you have not gotten it already.

 

Step 1.

 

Click on "INSTALLATION DESTINATION"

Step 2.

 

Make sure the Drive/partition you want to use is selected. You select it under the "Local Standard Disks" section. Then make sure you click on the radial button "I will configure partitioning".

 

fedora_2.png 

 

Step 3.

 

You should now be in the "Manual Partitioning" section. Click on the " + " down on the bottom left to add a new mount point.

 

fedora_3.png 

 

Step 4.

 

Put " / " for the "Mount Point:" and leave desired Capacity blank if you intend on using the full partition.

 

fedora_4.png 

 

Step 5.

 

You should be able to leave everything here it's default value. You can put a "Label" if you want to, sometimes it makes it easier to identify that partition/drive. Up to you.

 

fedora_5.png 

 

Step 6.

 

Look over the summary and make sure everything is okay. Once done, hit "Accept Changes". You will then have to hit "Done" (upper left) twice to complete changes.

 

fedora_6.png 

 

You should then be able to continue on with the installation. Hopefully this helps you out.

Unless you are trying to install Fedora on a brand new system, you do not want to select "automatic partitioning" you really NEED to select manual partitioning.
