It actually really was installed. 32 Bit will not install correctly, has issues with the partitions, but 64 bit installed without a hitch.

It booted up into Fedora on first boot after installation but after I started to update the system files...aka windows update.

When It restarted, it came to this screen:

You are setting at the GRUB screen. Grub is the Linux boot loader system. This means that it either cannot find your installed system, or your grub.conf file has been damaged during the update process. You will likely have to boot to rescue mode and perform a grub-install to get it installed once again. Note, you will have to know which partitions your system is on for this command.

Oh alright. I really appreciate that. I am not familiar with Linux... so I am trying my best to learn it. For some odd reason, I am in NOS and they are teaching us this...It is very different from DOS and windows.. especially when I know dos very well and windows is just a graphic user interface dropped on top of dos used for manipulation so the commands are very similar.

Yes, Linux is very different from DOS and Windows. No doubt about that.

I would suggest for learning purposes that you install it within a virtual machine first and try to learn it from within there.

Oh Trust me... I am using VMware Workstation.

I got lucky when I picked my PC that it had a good virtual in the BIOS.

I don't plan on using Fedora too long. Just for my class. I actually perfer Ubuntu.

Before making any real changes, be sure to backup the .vmdk file within vmware. This way, if an update screws you up, you can quickly recover back to where you were.

Fedora takes quite a number of chances with updates...it's meant to be bleeding edge. And some of these updates, break stuff. That's why I switched away from Fedora as a desktop. I use Ubuntu for my desktops and CentOS for my servers. CentOS is based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux. It just doesn't have a cost associated to it like RHEL.

Been playing around with Fedora 17. Makes me wonder how companies like Microsoft and Apple stay in business; these new linux distros are simply amazing. Same thing with the latest Mint, Maya. *sigh* If only they ran my work software... :rolleyes:
