Hey guys, new to posting here.

I'm getting a kernel panic (Caps-lock and Scroll-lock flashing) with a pure EFI system but I don't see any error messages right now.

I attached a picture of the screen as it panics and my fstab

I am running this in VMWare Workstation 10.0.0, not sure if that makes a difference. I saw some people took out 'firmware="efi"' in the .vmx file but I left mine in as I lost EFI support after.

Side note: When I use systemrescue with the existing linux system option, I have no problem booting into my system.

Picture of the last screen showed before hanging

/etc/fstab:
Code:

/dev/sda1     /boot     vfat     defaults,noatime     0 2
/dev/sda2     none      swap     sw                   0 0
/dev/sda3     /         ext4     noatime              0 1


My current partition schema is as followed:
/dev/sda1: 500MB (EFI System [EF00])
/dev/sda2: 4.0GB (Linux Swap[8200])
/dev/sda3: 25.5Gb (Linux Filesystem[8300])

I have /dev/sda1 formatted as vfat, /dev/sda2 as swap and /dev/sda3 as ext4

Any ideas as to what I should do or what other information I need to provide to help troubleshooting?

Thanks in advance! :D 8O

you might need to post also the .vmx contents so that others can see why it wont proceed with the bootup of the system in VMWare.

and also, when you partition the disk, was it 'msdos' or 'gpt'? and you may need also to post config for your grub maybe.

Well it gets to the UEFI Boot Manager and I can choose what to boot from once I'm there, it's just that it hangs when I try to boot my installation.

The disk partition is GPT, I opted to try a pure EFI system so no GRUB

we might be going in circles for this...
the information you posted is not enough for people to be able to help you and you only replied with almost the same information with your fist post :(
i wish you luck finding help or experiment your way with Gentoo until you get it working, whichever comes first.
