How do I install Fedora on a GPT disk without creating a bootloader partition?


I have a disk with several partitions on it, formatted as hybrid GPT/MBR, and as such I can't add a partition because it would mess with my other OS's. I don't need to install a bootloader because I already have one installed, but Fedora does not give me an option not to install a bootloader at the partitioning step; instead, it just gives me "you have not created a booloader stage1 target device" and won't let me go any further. Is there a way around this?

I haven't installed the most recent Fedora, the last time I installed it had a default to install the bootloader to /dev/sda but there was an option to Change Device so one could install to the Fedora root partition. That may have changed as Fedora was not using Grub2 with that install. What options do you see for bootloader installation?

It does not let me get to bootloader options, but gives me this error when I leave the partitioning screen.
