are you using the latest version of Fedora? It sounds like the drivers for your HDD are not present, meaning most likely you are using an outdated version of Fedora...

On which hardware you are trying to install Fedora?
It seems that the correct Hard Disk Drivers are missing.
Install the Hard Disk Drivers from your vendor's website and then go for Fedora Installation.

Don't select entire partition.
Select manual partition.
