No, @DONAHUE, the same stage3; I saw the tar output and it was the same 4.6.3 used before. I didn't ran gcc-config -l.
By the way, the kernel compilation was very quick! I have done it before (in other distros) in this machine and it took a long time!

Code:
find /boot/grub/stage1
Error 15: file not found

Code:
root (hd0,2)
Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83

(I have made a ext4 partition; or is ext4 an enhaced ext2?)
Code:
setup (hd0)
Checking if "/boot/grub/stage1" exists... no
Checking if "/grub/stage1" exists... yes
Checking if "/grub/stage2" exists... yes


May I copy the missing file? Only now I see that another file exists...
Code:
cp /grub/stage1 /boot/grub/stage1


The system reboots to the grub prompt; I have mounted and chrooted to instalation and made again the steps about grub, but reboot fails again.

from the chroot, get rid of the mislocated grub, emerge grub again, check location, setup, reboot:
Code:
emerge --unmerge grub
rm -rf /grub
emerge sys-boot/grub:0
grub
find /boot/grub/stage1
root (hd0,2)
setup (hd0)
quit
exit
reboot

Same error: stage1 does not exists...

I ran grub-install again but nothing.

Same thing!
I follow the steps you say, but I always get the grub prompt after reboot. Damn!
I have made a whole new install; from scratch and nothing.
I have erased it all and tryed with lilo... damn GRUB prompt again.

I'm not that noob! Why the hell things are so wrong?
I've tryed even initramfs and guess what? grub prompt!

I lost one week trying to install a linux distro! This is insane!

Excuse me for this, but I'm really mad about this fails.

reboot, at the grub prompt,
Code:
find /boot/grub/stage1
what result?

boot cd, enter the chroot

Code:
mount /dev/sda3 /mnt/gentoo
cp -L /etc/resolv.conf /mnt/gentoo/etc/
mount -t proc none /mnt/gentoo/proc
mount --rbind /sys /mnt/gentoo/sys
mount --rbind /dev /mnt/gentoo/dev
chroot /mnt/gentoo /bin/bash
source /etc/profile
export PS1="(chroot) $PS1"
ls -al /boot | wgetpaste
ls -al /boot/grub | wgetpaste
wgepaste /boot/grub/grub.conf
post the url's returned

I do not see how this is possible, unless you are installing bootloaders in one drive and booting another one with broken GRUB on it.

@DONAHUE: I'll make all again and then I post what you asked. Thanks for your patience.

Finally, my gentoo has booted properly.

I don't know what or where, but I was doing something wrong. Now the new problem is: gentoo do not see the network. I'll try to reconfig the files and then I'll cry for help if needed. I'll do something fun now because there are echoes of "emerges" and "nanos" into my head... :)


___ EDITED___

I tried to fix network config files without success; the next logical step would be a whole new install. But, as I said above, this new install does not boot anymore and I have no idea why. May I install gentoo in a SD card (for learning purposes)? My notebook is able to boot from a USB device. I worry about my HDD health.

By the way, my wireless network is invisible to gentoo and all I have done, I made through wired connection.
My hardware is BRADCOM 4313; and even putting it into kernel compilation, it stills not working.
I have an old Gentoo Live DVD (11 I think) and my wireless also isn't recognized; I'm downloading a new one (the latest I found is 20121221) and watch the wireless behavior. Is there any difference if I install Gentoo from its live DVD or from minimal CD? I ask because from live DVD I would be able to see handbook at the same time the terminal does its tasks... I have done it reading the handbook from my cellphone. But the major point of live DVD is about wireless.

no but no gentoo cd/dvd has good wireless support.
recommend you stop reinstalling, reinstall invalidates all previous troubleshooting and frequently adds new problems without solving old ones
boot the ubuntu livecd, run
Code:
 lspci -nk
, post result, this will more exactly define your NIC and what driver the presumably successful ubuntu uses
boot gentoo,
Code:
emerge pciutils
lspci -nk
dmesg | grep -i b43
ifconfig -a
ifconfig
post results of last four commands

Sabayon also recognizes my wireless, that's why I thought a newer one would be better

browsing to http://kmuto.jp/debian/hcl/index.rhtmlx and checking 14e4:4727 says the driver is brcmsmac
browsing to http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/b43 and finding 14e4:4727 yields:
Quote:
14e4:4727 no (WIP)BCM4313 b/g/n LCN (r1) wl/brcm80211
not b43 driver, alternatives wl or brcm80211
following the brcm80211 link yields:
Quote:
Supported Chips: brcmsmac (PCIe/AXI) driver: PCI Device ID BCM4313: 0x4727
Both brcmsmac and brcmfmac drivers require firmware files that need to be separately downloaded.
If not done previously:
Code:
emerge linux-firmware
ls /lib64/firmware/brcm/bcm43xx-0.fw
ls /lib64/firmware/brcm/bcm43xx_hdr-0.fw
to download and verify presence of the firmware. Kernel will probably require recompilation with following in menuconfig:

I've tried to install gentoo into my pendrive.
I swaped every sdax in the handbook with sdbx and included a different boot partition.
Grub worked, but showed me an error: it couldn't find the system.
I used hd(1,0) in the /boo/grub/grub.conf file.

Is that correct? To use sdbx instead sdax? The fdisk shows my HDD as sda and the USB Mass as sdb.

if you selected the pendrive as first to boot in bios, BIOS probably designated the pen drive as (hd0). If grub is installed on the pendrive and grub is setup on the mbr of the pendrive and the pendrive is selected as first to boot and the pen drive is /dev/sdb and the / partition is /dev/sdb3:
Quote:
title Gentoo Linux
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/your-kernel-name root=/dev/sdb3
should work

Yes, it worked; it boots (with the slpash screen) well, but when I hit enter on Gentoo option, it crashes... kernel panic. It says that couldn't mount the root filesystem.
I used exactly the same partition layout of handbook. It starts with a text screen, and then goes to "graphic text" (the 4 or 5 Tux at the top of screen) and then shows the error above.

I was thinking: I have complied the kernel with both ext2 and ext4 (plus ntfs) not as modules; I have said in /boot/grub/grub.conf that my root=/dev/sdb3; if it boots properly, why the hell can't it goes ahead? All the needed data until the crash point is in the boot partition? If I have made only the swap and an ext4 root partition would it crashes same way?

For me, gentoo has been an epic journey through linux knowledge... LOL.
