Hello, I have searched for the possible solving, but I couldn't find it. I have never used Gentoo before, but I feel like trying it. So, I tried to boot gentoo kernel from CD and I got this:
Code:
:: Loading from sata: sata_promise sata_sil (...) sata_vsc sata_qstor

And there is no further module loading. What is possibly the reason for such a situation and how can I possibly solve it? Thank you for all the helping.

flajuuu,

Welcome to Gentoo.

At the boot screen the CD provides several help screens ... press the F1 ..F2, and so on keys to read them.
You may need one or more of the no... options, like noapic to get started.

The problem is the CD contains a generic boot almost anywhere kernel that sometimes needs some help to get started.
This will not be a problem once your Gentoo is installed.

You might like to try System Rescue CD as a starting point. It has an optional GUI.

Thank you very much - I haven't realized there is a possibility to boot kernel with options. It was really helpful.
