Hi,

I burnt a iso image of the cd minimal install -Nov 6, 2014 version.

When I use it on my desktop I can boot on it, but when I decide to boot on my laptop I cannot.

I tried to change the boot option, but the CD doesn't appear in the boot option list. Other bootable CD appears!

The laptop is an ASUS N750JK -T4196H and has it secure boot disabled.
I managed to install debian but I have no graphical interface.

How comes the cd cannot be booted ?

Hello,

You don't need the Gentoo minimal CD to install Gentoo. You can start from any other running Linux, or use the wonderful SystemRescueCD live linux, based on Gentoo, from which you can start a graphical interface and surf on the Internet while you install Gentoo ;)

You can install Gentoo from your Debian install if you want (and if there's space free).
Any Linux install / bootable CD / bootable USB stick will do.

Thank you Xavier,

It doesn't exactly explain me why I cannot boot this CD but I will have a look at the SystemRescueCD

Thanks cwr.

I would like to use a small SSD and I am a bit short of room. I have to see that more accurately
