I got a second hand cpu, and some extra ram, yesterday.

The ram went fine, put two 8G stick beside my two 4G sticks and all is well .

When I put in the new cpu and powered on I just got 99999999999..... on the screen. No OS found type display.

Upgrade was from an i3-4130 to an i7-4970K with the same motherboard, Gigabyte Z87-HD3.

I have booted into a live image, void-xfce, have chrooted into my gentoo and am rebuilding @system to see if that helps.

Have I missed something? I kinda expected it would just work.

Your bootloader is failing. You didn't tell us whether this is UEFI or legacy boot, what bootloader is in use.

I'd reinstall Grub from chroot then. From your description I understand it even does not load Grub, correct?

You might want to make sure the bigger sticks are in the "primary" slots. Some motherboards are sensitive to that.

Correct, does not even load grub.

I re-emerged grub, reinstalled it. Have run:

grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

from the chroot which just seems to hang indefintely

the void iso image is booted into efi

Killed grub-mkconfig after waiting a few mins, rebooted and all is well.

Thanks Jaglover
