Hello.

Here after las weekend got my X86_64 Gentoo the problem that it done a reboot and after the this reboot and by boot up could it boot right up and said that the hard not could be read and all checks of /dev/sda4 was here no error by the Mount device it could just not find and read the files on /dev/sda4 there is the main root or the program files Mount got gentoo files.
I tried to check the system with SystemRescueCD for amd64 and first startup with boot from harddisk and still problem read files on /dev/sda4 then, so I just reboot rescue cd on the cd so there was nothing read from harddisk and then Mount /dev/sda4 to /mnt/gentoo and check it out of the harddisk gentoo system files and it look like the files could be read in some but not by boot from harddisk.

I then deside to make a new clean install with the latest version of gentoo minimal install for AMD64, where the stage3 file is a systemd and followed all instructions from handbook for amd64 where it all got fine just to the reboot and the bootloader startup and read the kernel by BOIS doing and then it got problem by read the gentoo files on /dev/sda4 Again and here by checking the /sda4 by Mount it like in the fstab file as /dev/sda4 / ext4 noatime 0 1
it could read the gentoo files but not write the log files in /var/log/.
I tok a day of pause and then here by Thursday afternoon starting over by the installation and got to the time for reboot and boot up by harddisk and it Works until I done a system reboot and end up where with got the not reading the files for and in / at /dev/sda4 self it in boot up after bootloader grub:2 and shows /dev/sda4 and by command Mount shows too /dev/sda4 is mounted.

I have not using efi-64 for bootloader.

Any there can say and help with what there is to do so the boot and kernel will not see and can find all the files on /dev/sda4.

Do you have a separate /usr partition? systemd requires the initrd to mount /usr
I had this problem, it gives the message you see about root but the actual issue could be that /usr needs to be mounted.

In my case I use genkernel, the fix was to use genkernel-next.

I have not set the profile as it is systemd profile just as 13.0 profile and not Mount /usr seperate only Mount it as
/dev/sda2 /boot ext2 default 0 2
/dev/sda3 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/sda4 / ext4 noatime 0 1

then by install livecd Mount /dev/sda4 /mnt/gentoo
Mount /dev/sda2 /mnt/gentoo/boot

It is just as it not read my fstab from startup and the other files in /etc/ at all.
When I just boot up with Linux sysetemRescue cd from the cd and Mount /dev/sda4 /mnt/gentoo can I read the files and see al files but get it like the files is read only and not to write in.
Using the cd and do boot up with from harddisk give me same problem when i start up normal by harddisk without cd boot up.
