How to install Fedora 20 on a mbr/ms-dos disk? The nogpt and noefi trick seems do not work.

This is a bug in F20 installer that still believes it is in UEFI native mode even if the noefi parameter is passed.


There is an updates image for the installer which fixes this issue available at Instructions on using an updates image are available here: in short, simply pass the parameter inst.updates= to the installer.
