The laptop I bought was a HP 15-dy1731ms
First thing I did was boot up the computer and enter the Bios by pressing F10 at startup.
In the BIOS i made 2 changes first I disabled secure boot so I could install Linux.
Second I made the USB drive a the primary boot device.
I went ahead and booted off the Fedora usb drive and installed it to the hard drive. As part of the install I deleted the windows partitions and let fedora partition the hard drive.
Once installed I noticed that the Realtek rtl8821ce wifi did not work. I tried the steps in this forum question and few like it but did not have any luck getting to work reliably.
In the end I bought a TP-Link usb wifi adapter (that has linux support) to connect to the internet
