So I have been using Arch/Windows dualboot for a few months now and running gentoo on a VM and on my desktop for a little bit too. I decided to install gentoo over both of those earlier today. On my desktop, I had no issue installing gentoo, but it was using bios, not UEFI. Now I'm installing it on my laptop and it is using UEFI. The install always seems to go smooth, even grub says everything is fine, but when I reboot after finishing everything my screen just says no boot able device. Ive tried partitioning it a few different ways. My laptop has a 30gb ssd and a 1tb ssd. At first I was just trying to install it to the tb ssd and leave the other one empty. When I was running arch and windows I had the boot partition and recovery partition on that drive so that's how I tried to set it up this time just hoping that would do it. I'm not too sure where to go from here. IF you need more information, just let me know! Thanks.

Random update. I just reinstalled after switching my BIOS to legacy and doing a BIOS gpt install. This install worked fine this time, minus the missing wireless driver, but I'm pretty sure I messed something up kernel wise so I can figure that out later. Still not fully sure why the UEFI install did not work though.

Also, this laptop is a Dell xps15 9550 if that helps. Thanks again.
