I've found a few other threads, but none have helped me find an answer.

I believe grub and everything is fine, but after the system starts to boot, I run into this error. I type "shell" to start a shell and poke around, but there's no "/boot", and there aren't any of either /dev/sd* or /dev/hd*. If necessary, I'll include my fstap, grub, etc in my next post.

I followed the gentoo handbook pretty closely, but I made label for the HDD GPT instead of MSDOS, and I removed quite a few options I didn't want. It's probably a matter of me excluding an option needed for GPT, and now knowing what I need to include to fix it.

Also, I haven't assigned any drivers yet because they all appear to be wireless card drivers. I'm installing this on an eMachine eM250.

I gave up too soon. I found this thread very informative:
