http://forums.fedoraforum.org – I just tried installing the 64bit Fedora 17 on a Lenovo V570 from the live cd (live cd boots up fine). Install goes fine with no errors and it's a clean install with no dual boot. When the computer restarts it gives a "media test failure" and does not boot. I haven't found anything on this issue with Fedora in searching so far but Ubuntu users have had the same issue and it came from issues with the boot loader in the 64-bit distro (32-bit distro worked for them).So I tried installing 32-bit fedora and it works fine. A fix that worked with the Ubuntu users for the 64-bit was using S (HowTos)
