Hello you all,

I feel pretty stupid, but I can't seem to find a bootable or install-CD for Gentoo on a Xserve 2.1.
Can anybody point me to an ISO somewhere to get this thing booted?

Thanking you in advance,

LeeJunFan

assuming you can look in bios and find a uefi boot listing for this cd in addition to the legacy listing
works for me but uefi bios implementations vary

For anyone who may run in to this same issue:
In GRUB choose: SystemRescueCd (64bit, disable Kernel-Mode-Settings).

Factually it will load:
linux /isolinux/rescue64 nomodeset
initrd /isolinux/initram.igz
