If you need to configure additional local storage devices, select `I will configure partitioning` and press `Done` to move to xref:Installing_Using_Anaconda.adoc#sect-installation-gui-manual-partitioning[Manual Partitioning]. Then, connect any new hard drives you want to make available during the installation, and press the button marked by a circular arrow in the set of controls below the list of mount points on the left side of the screen. In the dialog window that opens, press `Rescan Disks` and wait until the scanning process completes. Then, press `OK` to return to xref:Installing_Using_Anaconda.adoc#sect-installation-gui-storage-partitioning[Installation Destination]; all detected disks including any new ones will be displayed in the `Local Standard Disks` section.
The `Specialized & Network Disks` section below shows advanced network storage (such as iSCSI and FCoE disks) currently configured. When you first open this screen, no such devices will be displayed because they can not be automatically detected; to search for network storage devices `Add a disk` button and proceed with xref:Installing_Using_Anaconda.adoc#sect-installation-gui-installation-destination[Installation Destination - Specialized & Network Disks]. Any network storage you configure will then show up in the `Specialized & Network Disks` the same way local disks are shown above.

Additionally, you can select `Encrypt my data`pass:attributes[{blank}]; this will encrypt all partitions except the ones needed to boot the system (such as `/boot`) using _Linux Unified Key Setup_ (LUKS). Encrypting your hard drive is recommended. For detailed information about LUKS encryption, see the [citetitle]_{PRODUCT} Security{nbsp}Guide_, available at link:++http://docs.fedoraproject.org/++[].
If you lose the LUKS passphrase, any encrypted partitions and the data on them will become completely inaccessible. There is no way to recover a lost passphrase. However, if you perform a Kickstart installation, you can save encryption passphrases and create backup encryption passphrases during the installation. See xref:../advanced/Kickstart_Installations.adoc#chap-kickstart-installations[Automating the Installation with Kickstart] for information about Kickstart installations.
To control which one of your selected storage devices will contain the _boot loader_, click the `Full disk summary and bootloader` link in the bottom left corner of the screen, and follow the instructions in xref:Installing_Using_Anaconda.adoc#sect-installation-gui-storage-partitioning-bootloader[Boot Loader Installation]. Note that while in most cases it is sufficient to leave the boot loader in the default location, some configurations (for example, systems which require _chain loading_ from another boot loader) will require the boot drive to be specified manually.
