Thanks for the reply..

ok my windows are working fine.. and the F9 live cd is also able to boot the system .. but the problem is that .. its not installed on my hard disk.. whenever i try to install on my hard disk .. it work fine but while writing the file on hard disk .. it reports the bug..and ask to exit the installation ...

what is the exact error .
and how much space did you make available by repartitioning the drive by shrinking the windows partition .

Hi,

Actually what i did that ..when first time i installed the F9 on my hard disk i used the 20gb space .. that time evrything was ok but .. i has to compile the driver module and i installed the Kernel .. and i removed the old kernelthat was already installed ..
and then when i restart my system it didn't ask me for the login in fedora and only windows was there...
and from windows i format that 20 Gb space...
but i was not aware with that the grub is still there ... and its not removed ..
so i tried from window recovery..
fixboot
fixmbr..
after wards everything is fine..

i know that i was stupid .. but i m new in linux..
thanks...

Regards
Shraddha
