Hi,

I just own an MSI GP70 2PE-216XFR Leopard computer but I can't install Gentoo on it.
Reason behind is, its Ethernet card is a Qualcomm Atheros Killer E220x which is not recognized by install-x86-minimal-20141209.iso ... consequently, no network.

Any tip to activate the network ?

Thanks

Laurent

Well, here is what I would do. I would look up in kernel what cards are supported by ALX driver ... alright I did look it up for you. Here they are: 1969:1091, 1969:1090, 1969:10A1 and 1969:10A0. If I had one of these I would assume a good live distro has support for it. I always have latest SystemRecueCD USB stick in my pocket, so I would use this to install Gentoo.

SytemRescueCD is smaller download and has much better odds with your wired card (you didn't let us know whether you have a Linux kernel supported NIC), it also has much better wireless support. But choice is yours ...
