Unhappy Fedora 20 Installation Problem


I am creating a dual boot system for Windows 7 & Fedora 20. While installing to hard drive I get this error Installation destination "Error checking storage configuration ". I have shrunk my hard drive partition to have 30 GB of space. But the installer only shows 1.99 MB available. Now 1.99 MB is the amount of space on my Pen Drive, but the drive the installer picks is my hard drive listed as 479 GB. How do I proceed with my installation of Fedora 20?

using # parted -l

output::

Boot the pen drive and select "Try Fedora". Open a terminal, then enter this command and post the output here
Code:
su -c 'parted /dev/sda print free'

the fedora installer, anaconda, had some major reworks starting with Fedora 17. it sees the partitions, but you will have to delete and recreate them in order to get around the issue you are having. once you do that it should work fine.
