Good work!
We crossed in the mail.
lshw says sysresccd only installed driver for intel NIC which is e1000e whick is not configured in your kernel.

From the chroot with boot partition mounted at /boot:

All done, sir. The only item I could not find in the Linux menuconfig. file was:" [*] Support HW cross-timestamp on PCH devices" . Everything else checks.

What is the next step?


I forgot the last few steps....be right back.... :roll:

Donahue,


I just ran startx to see whether I could see the GUI, and it works, pretty neat! I am letting you know, as you are checking my kernel graphics config.

hooray!!! ignore this crossmail. you can add a solved to the title of your first post.

do you want nouveau (open source) or nv (proprietary closed source)? follow one or the otherof the following: (more kernel work required)
https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Nouveau
https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/NVidia/nvidia-drivers
does /etc/portage/make.conf contain VIDEO_CARDS="nouveau" (or "nv") and INPUT_DEVICES="evdev"?
When make.conf has your choices:
Code:
emerge -av xterm twm xclock xorg-server # simple GUI for testing purposes
qlist -IC x11-drivers # should show evdev and nouveau or nvidia-drivers
startx # should pop up 3 white windows
# escape by typing exit in  upper left window

Hi Donahue,

I did the menuconfig as per your instructions. I am having the same issues as before. I use youtube as my test bed, as it involves both video and sound. Videos do not open, or open with a black screen and never start, there is no sound, and I can't click on many buttons...

FYI: I am working as chroot with sysrescuecd, although I do not think that is an issue...

sysresccd will not provide much audio support if any so you should boot the newly installed gentoo system's newly compiled computer. what GUI are you using? what browser?

Hi DONAHUE,

Today I am having a problem with the boot of the PC. It won't let me boot from the sdb (the Linux one), and it shows a message " Disc check..." and then it sends me back to Windows 10. I will now list the options my system has for booting, that should help you understand what right settings to use.

I am in the UEFI BIOS Utility;

1) CSM (Compatibility Support Module); it can be either Enabled or Disabled. If enabled:

Boot Device Control -------------------->>> UEFI and Legacy OPROM/ Legacy Oprom only/ UEFI only
Boot from Network Devices ----------->>>Legacy OPROM First/ UEFI Driver first/ Ignore
Boot from storage devices ------------>>>Both, Legay OPROM first/ Both, EUFI first/ Legacy OPROM first/ UEFI driver first/ Ignore
Boot from PCI-E/PCI Expansion Device>>Legacy OPROM first/ UEFI driver first.

2) Secure Boot Windows UEFI first/ Other OS.

No matter what combination I tried, that worked yesterday, the system boots into Windows 10, or it gives me a message to hit [F1] and to reset the CSM, as the one I set is not valid, or something. Since we are at it, how do I set the boot specs to have a dual boot system?

I am sorry I am having this problem, I know we are that close to be up and running...

Ok, I think I found out what happened: I booted from sysresccd, and I get an error message: '/newroot/sbin/init': no such file, /sbin/init not found on root file system. I kind of guessed it had something to do with the init file, as I could not boot Linux anymore, no matter what setting I would use in the boot section...that might mean I have to start all over again from scratch. If that is the case, I do not want to waste anymore of your time and patience. All I know is that last night I was testing the system, via the rescue cd, for video and sound, and then I just shut it down, and today I see this friendly message...oh well....so be it...

Does this mean something like: you boot sysresccd and choose the (rough quote) "boot a system from the hard drive" from the menu?

First a disclaimer: I do not have a sabertooth z97 motherboard. Is yours a mark 1 or mark 2?

Read this: https://www.asus.com/support/faq/1013015/ may help beat the windows only reboot.

"Disc check..."
was there any further information presented where the dots are? My guess is Windows sees the ESP vfat partition on the gentoo disk and is checking it.
Quote:
CSM (Compatibility Support Module)
refer to http://www.rodsbooks.com/efi-bootloaders/csm-good-bad-ugly.html
if disabled you should be able to boot grub but not windows.
if enabled:
UEFI and Legacy OPROM - should put both windows and grub into the boot options menu and sysresccd as uefi and non uefi choice
Legacy Oprom only - should put only windows and not grub into the boot options menu and sysresccd only as non uefi choice
UEFI only - should put only grub and not windows into the boot options menu and sysresccd only as uefi choice

Quote:
Secure Boot Windows UEFI first/ Other OS.
Leave this in Other OS.

Which version of windows are you running?

In windows open a CLI terminal as administrator and execute:
Code:
powercfg /h off
This should turn off windows fast boot which can cause file system corruption.

Hello Donahue,

you have to excuse me, but today it was a busy day at work. I will have a thorough look into it. I will come back within the next few days, let's see what I can get done, hopefully there is a way out...lol....wait for some news from me, I might have a few questions about your last post, we'll see...

Does this mean something like: you boot sysresccd and choose the (rough quote) "boot a system from the hard drive" from the menu?

I can't remember, but it is the second choice from above when booting the sysresccd, it should say something about loading the system into RAM

First a disclaimer: I do not have a sabertooth z97 motherboard. Is yours a mark 1 or mark 2?

I have a Sabertooth Z87. I don't think there is a mark1/2 for the Z87.

I remeber now the exact Windows message: "Disc Recovery...", which lasted a few seconds, and then I was back into Windows.

UEFI only - should put only grub and not windows into the boot options menu and sysresccd only as uefi choice

I tried the EUFI only option, and the system tries to start Linux only, but then it kicks me back into the Boot menu...But, when I boot from the sysrescd, it fires up and I can get into startx.

Windows 10-64bit

Ok.

Tonight, when I get home, I'll start working on my system, and applying the suggestions and workarounds you posted. Hopefully, I will be done by tomorrow night (CET), if not, I'll let you know as soon as I am done testing. So far, I have left my Linux setup on the sdb without any changes, let's see if I still get the /sbin/init error again...will keep you posted as soon as I am done!

Hello DONAHUE,

last night I managed to run some tests, and tried some things, the results of which I am posting here. First off, I disabled Fast boot; then I tried to play around with CSM, and found out that if I disable it, the system won't boot; I left the Secure boot Windows option as "Other OS".

Having done this, I ran a few of the options given by sysrsccd:

1) Sysresccd default boot options: I get to the root prompt, and with startx I can enter the GUI environment.

2) Sysyrsccd (all files cashed to Memory): I get the root prompt with startx working.

3) Sysrsccd Boot an existing Linux system installed on disk: this is where I get the following error messages:

-Checking /sbin/init can be executed by the current kernel
-readelf: ERROR:'/newroot/sbin/init': No such file
-/sbin/init on the root filesystem is in a binary
-mount: mounting /dev on /netroot/dev failed: no such file or directory
-!! /sbin/init not found on root filesystem
-|| Running a minishell (cannot complete the boot process)
-/bin/bash: can't access tty: job control turned off

4) Sysrsccd Alternate Kernel with default boot options: root prompt with startx working

5) Sysrsccd Standard 64bit Kernel (rescue64) with more choices: 1) With default options: root prompt withh startx working

* Boot from first hard disk: the system boots into Windows 10.

* Boot from second hard disk: Welcome to GRUB! ERROR :file'GRUB/i386-pc/normal.mod' not found. The system, then, gets to the grub prompt: grub rescue>

edit: after doing some search, I found a likely solution, which could mean reinstalling GRUB:

mount /dev/sda2 /mnt >>>/sda2 is my boot partition
grub-install --boot-directory=/mnt /dev/sda>>> here, though, I believe it should be grub2
reboot

What do you think? Would a grub2 reinstall solve the problem?

Seems as though grub is passing the wrong partition to the kernel to use as root.
Reinstall of grub should be harmless.
boot sysresccd in uefi mode, mount gentoo partitions, enter chroot, then:
Code:
emerge ntfs3g os-prober 
echo "/dev/sda2 /mnt/win2 ntfs-3g defaults,noauto 0 0"  >> /etc/fstab
mkdir /mnt/win2
cd /usr/src/linux;make menuconfig
edit menuconfig to include

then
Code:
make && make modules_install && make install
exit
reboot
boot sysresccd uefi mode, mount gentoo partitions, enter chroot, then:
Code:

mount /dev/sda2 /mnt/win2
mount | wgetpaste -t
# should show /dev/sda2 on /mnt/win2 type fuseblk (<stuff>), /dev/sdb1  on /boot
GRUB_PLATFORMS="efi-64 pc" emerge =sys-boot/grub-2.02_beta3-r1:2
grub-install --target=x86_64-efi --efi-directory=/boot
os-prober | wgetpaste -t
grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
ls -R /boot | wgetpaste -t
wgetpaste -t /boot/grub/grub.cfg
blkid | wgetpaste -t # want PARTUUID for /dev/sda4
ls /sbin/*init* | wgetpaste -t
exit
reboot
post url's returned by wgetpaste as ocurring, try to boot grub/gentoo

Edited to remove attempts to mount windows recovery partition that did not work for OP

I am stuck here, as the command
Code:
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/win1

gives me: mount:/dev/sdb1 is write-protected, mounting read-only
NTFS signature is missing
Failed to mount '/dev/sdb1': invalid argument
The device '/dev/sdb1' does not seem to have a valid NTFS.

This one went fine...maybe I have enter the wrong input before...let me try again...
Code:
mount /dev/sda2 /mnt/win2
