OK, please give us some info about which disk did you
install the grub booter on?

If you installed it on sata-1 and NOT on sata-0, then
the only way for you to boot Fedora is if you have
a bios boot disk selection menu.
At power-up, there has to be a Function key to press
that will tell bios to pop up a boot menu.

Does you bios have such a menu?
