to install fedora.  I had created a swap space before.
 I used the option "keep all linux partions and create
default layout".

I booted into rescue mode and everything seems
correct.  The image is there.

Replying to myself, but for the archives 

I retried again.  This time removing all the linux partitions and installation worked!!!  Cannot complain running F7 T4 on Toshiba Laptop.
