See the LQ Rules about text-speak, and about not using it, please.

If you want Windows and Linux together, the best way to do it is install Windows FIRST. Windows wants the entire disk, and can't find it. Do you have free space on the disk you're attempting the install on? And I don't mean 'free' as in unused....I mean free as in UNPARTITIONED/UNFORMATTED? And did you try to look up any of the how-to guides that are available? This is a bit old, but valid:

Do you get this message when you try to boot the windows 10 installation medium? I don't see how you could get that error in this case.
Have you installed windows 10 and now cannot boot it?
Did you install Mint and Fedora UEFI?
If you use GPT then with windows you need UEFI? If Mint and Fedora are not installed UEFI, problems.

This is a problem, WHY?

What TB0ne said actually. Windows prefers to be in there first, then install Linux.
