due to not working uefi mode of gentoo minimal install iso and unsupported btrfs I had to install it that complicated:
1. trying to boot install-amd64-minimal-20130801 (now I see there is a 0816 version).iso gentoo minimal iso in uefi mode from usb stick -> fail -> nothing happens -> next boot device is booting
2. boot in normal mode
3. there is no mkfs.btrfs so I had to download latest archlinux iso
4. boot archlinux usb stick
5. mkfs.btrfs all the needed partitions
6. recreate gentoo minimal usb stick
7. boot in normal mode
8. install the system using stage3
9. time to get grub2 efi installed... -> fail due to not booted in uefi mode
10. recreate archlinux usb stick
11. chrooting gentoo from step 8 -> grub2-install --target=x86_64-efi
12. profit now I'm able to boot my newly installed gentoo

btw. I had to move my laptop to another room to connect it via lan cable with my router.. because there is no ath9k module in the 20130801 version... so my wifi was unusable at all

is it so difficult to make a proper uefi capable iso with ath9k module? hopefuly it's now fixed in 0816 but guyz you really needed 15 days to realize that you forgot to compile the installation iso's kernel with atheros wireless support?
