Hi. I'm trying to install gentoo on my lenovo s205 box, and I think I cannot get without some help.

I guess I did everything except installing boot loader. s205 use UEFI firmware but I don't think I need GPT.
So I made mbr partitions.

Code:

root@bodhi:/# fdisk -l /dev/sda
Disk /dev/sda: 500.1 GB, 500107862016 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 60801 cylinders, total 976773168 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x00002895

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sda1            2048      411647      204800   83  Linux
/dev/sda2          411648     8800255     4194304   82  Linux swap / Solaris
/dev/sda3         8800256   176572415    83886080   83  Linux
/dev/sda4       176572416   976773167   400100376   83  Linux


and I emerged grub:2 not using "efi-64". grub2-install and grub2-mkconfig did not make error.
Code:

bodhi / # grub2-install --no-floppy /dev/sda
Installation finished. No error reported.
bodhi / # grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
Generating grub.cfg ...
done


Then I rebooted, but grub could not print a single letter on the screen. It is pure blank black screen.
Did I something wrong?


Thank you for your reading my poor English writings. :-/
