    Welcome to the forum mtech84

    Post all your Open source queries here

    As for your problem..
    Did you create a boot partition?
    Where did you install the Boot loader?

    Post more details about these.

    Also, you won't be able to see linux partition in windows without using 3rd party tools, that is why you cannot see your f drive which contains linux installation.
