error message when pressing "Next" "BIOS Problems" , help !


Hi,
i've downloaded the Fedora "4 cds" , i did these steps after D/L
1- Made a partition with ext2 format 20GB
2- Burned the CDs .
3- Restarted the PC , booted to the 1st CD ..
4- Anaconda Installer is running , but after clicking "Next" an error message appeared it says "Gemotry Problem with BIOS (fixable) Problem" as i remember ...
how can i solve this problem , "Its not happening with MDK 10.0 , FC1 or Redhat 9" ????! WEIRD !!!

The only way YOU could do something like that is by setting wrong options in the partition table. There with only one click you could delete entire HDD (but Linux setup always asks you before it makes any changes). That message couldnt done that because I installed Fedora 2 on at least 10 different computers and never had any problems. In any case try loading some partition tool and check out first if everything is so bad as you said it was. If it is deleted, go to download.com and find some program for data recovery before you overwrite HDD with something else.

Good luck.
