Smile Re: Partitioning errors: sda must have a gpt disk label on Lenovo S205

Thank you, the hurdle has been jumped. The solution to delete the .efi file has worked.

Now I can see a few more hurdles in the distance

Many thanks

Re: Partitioning errors: sda must have a gpt disk label

Hey Guys,

Thanks so much for a wonderfully detailed forum and solutions - I deleted that BOOTX64.efi file from the USB and everything worked as described here!

Best regards

By chance are you running Lenovo laptop or one that has legacy usb support in your bios? If it has that disable the usb and install just from a live disk, when you disable the legacy usb (that is how it appears in my bios) it will not load the EFI file system. Granted live usb is convent, but I have noticed without a actual switch in the bios, to choose which. I hope that helps. If you keep having the issue maybe we can figure it out.

Re: Partitioning errors: sda must have a gpt disk label

Sorry, for myself to get fedora to install, I had to disable the ability to boot from a usb device. In my bios it said legacy usb support. I found that the legacy like devices, in my case booting with a live usb, does not play well. So once I disabled the booting with usb I then used the Federer 17 full cd and was able to install it with no problems. I have a Lenovo ideapad so I was wondering if you had the same, because maybe then our bios are the same or close to.
