I cannot formulate well because i’m exhausted of trying over and over. Fedora can’t find my SSD. I don’t know what I need to say, sorry.
Please give more hardware details about your system.
Brand name and model.
SSD type - SATA, NVMe.
Interface mode. AHCI, Raid?
What existing system is running? Windows?
Firstly, I’d like to apologize for not giving much information and for answering your response so late (time zones). I’m using an Acer Aspire 5 A515-55g-588g running Windows 10 version 20H2. Now, I’m gonna go to the BIOS interface to gather more information.
Now, coming back from there, I’m able to give some more information;
Regarding whether the SSD is NVMe or SATA, given the two images above, I’m confused.
As the interface mode goes, I guess this is what you’re looking for:
It says “SATA Mode: Optane without RAID”, furthering my confusion on whether the SSD is SATA or NVMe.

Please check if the above topic from Acer Community applies to your situation or not.
Thank you a lot. It now sees the SSD, but now I’m stuck with another problem that keeps Fedora to install:
It doesn’t see my 50GiB partition as free space.
Remove the partition to recognize it as free space.
Nor does it let me shrink or delete that partition to free up space, as it should. It always goes back to 9 and something MiB or 10.3MiB.
What exactly happens when you select it and click the delete button?
It just goes back to Anaconda’s main page, and when I go back to the installation page, it shows the same 10MiB of free space.
Use GNOME Disks in a Fedora live session, or remove it from Windows.
I’ve deleted my 50GiB partition trough WIndows’ disk manager and now it sees the free space. But when I select it, the “begin installation” button remains unclickable.
I’m trying to install the Xfce version, BTW.
Are you using the Automatic Layout option?
Do you assign mount point /boot/efi to the ESP partition?
Yes, I was using the Automatic Layout. Probably that was the problem. But now I’m trying to figure out what would be the optimal order and size of those mount points.
P.S.: Yes, I’m a complete beginner, but I’ll start studying from now on.
That is a good sizing and layout.
What happen when you click Done?
Oh, I’m sorry for the delay. I have had some personal issues to take care of yesterday. I’ve successfully installed Fedora Xfce; I did some digging in the Fedora guides and changed that layout and size for something that I thought to be more appropriate. I have to thank you and Vladislav Grigoryev very much for all the support.
