Hi,

I am trying to install Gentoo by first booting the SystemRescueCd on usb on a (new) Ryzen 2400g system, motherboard Fatal1ty B450 Gaming-ITX/ac.

Grub starts, (then i have to manually change the foldername in grub from isolinux to syslinux, not sure why Grub on the cd/usb points to the wrong dir).
After that the screen remains dark, and nothing seems to happen.

I created a new usb drive for this using http://www.system-rescue-cd.org/Installing-SystemRescueCd-on-a-USB-stick/ .
Note that I reflashed the usb-device multiple times, used another one, and checked/used it on my laptop where it does start in the regular way that you would expect from SystemRescueCd. Up to know SysRescueCD never seemed to fail in the past when installing Gentoo....

I am now wondering:

- is SystemRescueCd not suitable for this system to boot (old kernel, wrong drivers?)
- or is there something else that it wrong, hardware?
- What install-medium could i use instead (if SysRescCDsomehow is to blame?).

Any advice is welcome. (I am reading the AMD/Ryzen thread as well, but I cant find anything so far regarding the install-medium).

Thanks for any hints,

Alex.

You could try Gentoo's Live USB, you can found them in Gentoo mirrors, in the path releases/<arch>/autobuilds/<timestamp>/install-amd64-minimal-<timestamp>.iso

Regarding SystemRescueCD, I'm not sure why, but since they released the EFI Grub its wrongly pointint to isolinux and you have to manually change it. I don't remember a time where that worked out of the box :lol:

It isn't mandatory to use SystemRescueCD, or other Gentoo based live system.
You can use any live linux system you can successfully boot. The only limitation is the architecture - use the same which you plan to install, 64 or 32-bit

Ok, yes. I now managed to boot Arch on this hardware, and I am currently installing Gentoo / compiling the kernel from this.
