Hello,

From What I understand you have an empty drive (G) and you want to install fedora to that. Fedora will not install on a NTFS partition. Try deleting the partition(G) and choose the appropriate file system; perhaps a guided installation for the space that is left.

Were this me performing the installation manually I would create an extended partition and have two partitions inside, 1 partition of ext3 and 1 swap partition (only a few GB). Use gedit to set up the partitions and select the correct ones during the OS installation.

- Let us know how it goes.
