When you boot up, do you see a menu come up before Windows boots, or does it just go straight to Windows?

Describe your system a little better.

 

Are you using a drive for windows and a drive for linux or do you have both on the same drive?

Did you see any errors during the Fedora install of grub?

 

P38

Perhaps the installation was corrupt?

Or the Linux image you used was corrupt?

Did you properly partition hard drive?

Try to reinstall...maybe it will work.

But i am just guessing on all this, I am not an expert. lol My name IS deltaNOOB! lol
