In case it is relevant, the full path to the distro version I used, the "Install Media" version at the top:

Okay, tested it on another computer with the same result.

Then tried out the Fedora 19 Beta Desktop Live Media version:

which allowed me to actually install Fedora after a reboot, the grub error: no such partition stopped me from actually using Fedora.

Tried to install Fedora 18 then, install worked but grub refused to boot. I came as far as being able to boot into Win XP, but Fedora is nowhere to be seen. I know that people are using Fedora very succesfully, I also know that Ubuntu installed without any issues, so I am curious as to what happened here.

So far, neither with Fedora 18 or 19 do I get a running Fedora system, strangely.

Does this problem still occur with the released version of Fedora 19 or Fedora 20?
