Its not so much the chipset, but that the dell has a gap in the numbering of devices attached to it that the livecd cant deal with. Servers are a different matter.

That bug (#230998) is a problem of live-cd, and I'm using minimal install cd. Since I neglected to get a RAID controller for my makeshift server and don't want to spend more money on it until I get some value from it, I'm going to usually theres at least 2... https://www.facebook.com/gentoo.org/posts/10151117786423812 But 1.1.3 on the same partition #2 of the same thumb drive, INSERTED INTO THE EXACT SAME PHYSICAL USB PORT, gives me the same error as the other people have reported
OK, I guess that makes sense. root block device() :: Ставить пытаюсь с флешки на свой ноут. Запускал процесс установки так: boot: gentoo и так: boot: gentoo slowusb Результат один и тот же.

Is there a reason the CD wouldn't come with support for SATA DVD drives? -- I mean the best with what I say. http://www.system-rescue-cd.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=2254 that would ease the curve Not a terrible idea.

I cant access the machine at the moment, so I cant get the bios links- its somewhere in the disk area. It doesn't matter what cd >> you start from, only that you get started.
le_y_mistar said: why dont you just install gentoo in a vm? Other than that, it doesn't matter what CD you use as Eric said. Just boot with "rescuecd minishell" and check these things Yes the initramfs file is involved in this stuff, but I can do the fix if something must be changed at that this contact form messy. > Other than that, it doesn't matter what CD you use as Eric said.
Does it need to be the LiveCD? -- I mean the best with what I say. But during boot-up, a message comes: ____________________________________ >> Determining root device... !!
