hello all,
I just finished installing the latest version of gentoo. I *thought* i followed all of the instructions perfectly, but upon performing the final reboot and removing the livecd, my laptop displays the message , "os not found" .

Please tell me i can use the livecd to fix this, without having to go through the entire install process again... Laptop is gateway mx6930 intel 945gm chipset
I chose lilo for the bootloader and im assuming i set it up wrong or something but i really hope i can fix this with!?out doing everything over again...how can i chroot on to my new filesystem from the cd!

Hi pertplus,

Yes, you should be able to fix this with the livecd. Just go to the appropriate section of the instructions for the chroot and go from there.

You likely have much better luck going with grub instead of lilo.
