Just installed Funtoo Linux running gentoo-sources on my new computer (z87, Intel i5, nVidia graphics) and it fails to boot.
I just get a "green screen" and a frozen system almost immediately.

I installed using VirtualBox in Windows (using Physical disk access with VMDK) and it works just fine here (I've installed this way before on other systems without any problems).
I lost my USB Thumb-drive so it was the only way to go.[/url]

Tried booting with acpi=off and nomodeset, no difference.

I took an image of the screen and uploaded it here: http://i.imgur.com/mK5WPMC.jpg

Booting to command prompt. But if you see the screenshot the kernel is not even finished loading

do you have any linux liveCD's that you can boot - ie test the hw is ok

I guess you are missing some framebuffer driver or its not enabled
