Pick Up the Existing EFI Boot Partition
Here I have clicked on the "Unknown Linux" group (this is actually the openSuSE installation which I did previously), and it opened to show me the contents. What I need to do is pick up the EFI Boot partition, so Fedora will use the same one as Windows 8 (and openSuSE), rather than creating a new EFI partition for its own use.
First I click on the EFI Boot partition, then in the Mount Point field I enter /boot/efi, then I click 'Apply Changes'.
Finally, I click on the 'New Fedora 18 Installation' group, to make sure that the EFI partition has been added to my new configuration.
Fedora Partitioning is Complete
Zowie, there's some magic for you! anaconda has noticed the existing swap partition and added it to our new installation automatically! At this point, I am happy - I have a root, swap and EFI boot partition. If I would like to add a separate home partition, or anything else, I can do that in the same way that root was added, just click "+" and enter the mount point and size.
When I am happy with the partitioning, I click 'Finish Partitioning' to return to the hub.
Configuration Complete, Ready to Install
Note: When returning from the Storage screens to the hub, it will not look like this at first. It will still have the warning triangle on the Storage configuration, the yellow note across the bottom saying that you have to complete the marked items before continuing, and the installation button will not be active.
It takes a short time for anaconda to confirm that you have created a valid disk layout, and then the screen will change to that shown above.
I click 'Begin Installation' to continue.
