Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I recently got a new 2TB hard disk in my PC.
So I left almost 400GB for the Fedora 22 for my second system, the weird thing is I can't install it on the second disk(sdb).
While I burn the Live CD into my usb disk,and start up with it. The pre-system can detect the 400GB Free available space for installation.
I do the partition manually, by using the LVM for most of the default partition.There won't be any problem for the partition.
Once done, it gave me that it needs the /boot/efi or something else partition necessarily, so I give it 20GB for this. But it still gave it an error. Even I tried to make it automatically by default, it still gave me the error.
One thing should be mentioned, that the one select the time zone and input method, it gave me that it won't enough space available for the installation as well.
Does somebody meet this issue before?
Here is my Disk details:
First disk: 120GB SSD, installed Windows as the primary system.(c disk)
Second disk: 2TB, 3 parts divided for Windows(d,e,f disks), each had 500GB for Windows using.
Almost 400GB unused space, and never format for any sort of file filesystem.
Hi Ztcoracat, thanks for your help.
The error about the /boot/exx I didn't remember, since this is the first time as it shows.
Did it something wrong with the Primary disk or extend disk, since there were 4 disks already, no more Primary disk for the partition. If so, I may re-create the partition tables on Win first, the new 3 partitions on Win will recreate with extended partition, is that ok?
You mention windows but not which version. Also, if you have windows 8 or later and it was pre-installed it is probably using UEFI and if that is the case you need UEFI for Fedora. Generally, the EFI partition will contain files for both windows and Linux and 500MB is the largest partition I have see for EFI.
