Hello,

I just bought a new PC

MB: Asus H97M-E
CPU: i7-4770

I've followed the handbook. However after installation and reboot I can't get to boot the system, it just goes the BIOS setup.

I have started from this install-amd64-minimal-20140619.iso
Kernel is installed with "genkernel all"

I am using grub2 as suggested in the handbook. The install went without any errors.
Even tried adding 'GRUB_PLATFORMS="emu efi-32 efi-64 pc"'. Still no luck.
Sadly "http://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/GRUB2" did not help me :/

Here is some info:

Code:
livecd gentoo # uname -a
Linux livecd 3.12.21-gentoo-r1 #1 SMP Thu Jun 19 06:47:27 UTC 2014 x86_64 Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4770 CPU @ 3.40GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux


Code:
GNU Parted 3.1
Using /dev/sda

print


quit

genkernel all
ls -l /boot/

grub2-install /dev/sda
grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

rm /stage3-*.tar.bz2*

exit
cd
umount -l /mnt/gentoo/dev{/shm,/pts,}

Any help will be appreciated!

Is this a system with only one hard drive?

Disable secure boot in your BIOS.

Just a n00b here but don't you need to change the mount options for /dev/sda2? Yours is set as noauto,noatime.

No, that's perfectly normal for /boot. As I understand the OP's problem, he is not getting far enough for an fstab error to matter, so even if it was wrong, it is not what he needs to worry about yet.

So you mentioned emerging gentoo-sources but did you actually build and install a kernel and modules? When you did the grub2-mkconfig did it mumble something about finding and installing the kernel you copied to boot? Did you use genkernel or did you go the manual route and then made sure that you baked in the hard drive controller that you are using on your mobo or made sure that that made it to whatever initramfs you might have created?

You need an efi boot partition.

I have little EFI knoledge but a guy i know says this guide helped him.

After up grading my computer to an EFI (not specifically for EFI though) board that looks pretty much what I did. Hope that helps!

Sorry if I'm hijacking this thread, but I seem to be having a near identical problem to the OP. Other than my hardware, the files listed are identical to mine. Every time I try to reboot the system it goes to the BIOS unless I boot from the live DVD (actually on a USB stick). I used fdisk to set /dev/sda1 as a boot partition, but my system still refuses to boot. FWIW I used genkernel and it had no issues finding the initrd and the kernel. It is a single SSD drive (120G) and I can't see anything in my BIOS indicating secure boot.

system info:
Gigabyte BRIX (GB-BXieH-4010)
I3 dual core processor at 1.7GHz

Any ideas what else I should look at or any code info you need for further suggestions?

Thanks!
