You really don't need to create partitions with DOS fdisk and such...
Fedora can do that with Disk druid. No need to sreate partitions before
setup.

You can't just switch disks after installation was allready made and MBR
was written. There are disk slices/partitions info writen in /etc/fstab
file, therefore switching disk will cause a kernel panic (if you don't
manualy change the file before switching disks)

Just a thought... Did you try to let Fedora to automaticly create
partitions for you?
