I used to use Gentoo in many places and am trying to get back into using it. I have a basic system set up now, and I can chroot into it... but I can't boot into it. It is and AMD64 system using the minimal liveCD, and I kept everything as simple and basic as possible using Grub 2, 4 partitions on an internal SATA drive, UEFI, and Systemd (Intent will be to use Gnome)
Here's my emerge --info:

Code:
(chroot) livecd / # emerge --info

I am using profile 25:
Code:
  [25]  default/linux/amd64/17.0/systemd (stable) *


I would think this would be enough to diagnose the problem, but let me know if there is more I can provide- The problem is simple- when I boot, the system says there is no bootable device- doesn't even try to load GRUB. Ideas?
I went methodically through the handbook, and when it didn't work the first time, I reformatted and went for it again, same problem, so it isn't something like a typo or anything like that- most likely there is a step that installs grub that I didn't do properly both times. Let me know- I appreciate the help!

the minimal liveCD don't support efivar filesystem .Grub need this to setup efiboot
SystemRescueCd is a better install medium

Or use efistub for the 1 boot
efistub looks for a default location to boot "/boot/EFI/boot/bootx64.efi on a fat32 partion"
https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/EFI_stub_kernel

systemd also get a boot manager with the useflag gnuefi
that can Installation to the EFI Default/Fallback path
