Hey guys, im very new to gentoo, much less linux installs so bear with me.

So I just installed gentoo and it hangs during boot at this:
http://imgur.com/pcWtx7Z

Sorry for the crappy picture.

-Install medium was the Gentoo 20121221 LiveDVD, but I swear I followed the handbook to the tee (for the most part; opened terminal, sudo su, etc).
-Partitions ive written for gentoo are all logical; i am dual booting with win8. Im not too familiar with uefi, but im pretty sure the mobo isnt uefi by default.
-I have not done fancy to the kernel (genkernel), if you guys want I can post fstab or lilo (I felt it was more user friendly), which I currently feel are the main sources ...of error, or I can post anything else you guys request.
-PC is a laptop, Dell Inspiron 1440.
-I think lilo works fine, when I reboot it posts and reaches the lilo bootloader, I have the option of windows or gentoo, then after choosing it shows some text and thats where it hangs.

So, in summary, I have no idea whats wrong, I can show you guys anything that will help.

the screenshot suggests that lilo did its job and loaded and passed control to the kernel. The kernel appears to be misconfigured and lack support for the hard drive controller and/or adapter.

Is this a straight install to the internal hard drive with no virtual machines, raids, usb, or lvms involved?

boot the dvd.
mount the gentoo partitions.
run
Code:
wgetpaste -h
to find out if the dvd has the wgetpaste program.
if the dvd has wgetpaste:
Code:
fdisk -l | wgetpaste
lspci -k | wgetpaste
wgetpaste /mnt/gentoo/usr/src/linux/.config
wgetpaste /mnt/gentoo/usr/src/linux/etc/lilo.conf
wgetpaste /mnt/gentoo/usr/src/linux/etc/fstab
if the dvd does not have wgetpaste:
enter the chroot,
Code:
mount -t proc none /mnt/gentoo/proc
mount --rbind /sys /mnt/gentoo/sys
mount --rbind /dev /mnt/gentoo/dev
chroot /mnt/gentoo /bin/bash
source /etc/profile
export PS1="(chroot) $PS1"
then
Code:
 emerge wgetpaste pciutils usbutils
fdisk -l | wgetpaste
lspci -k | wgetpaste
wgetpaste /usr/src/linux/.config
wgetpaste /usr/src/linux/etc/lilo.conf
wgetpaste /usr/src/linux/etc/fstab
for either case, post the url's returned

Actually, the error message indicates (8,7) cannot be accessed, 8 is SCSI driver. Getting this error means either root filesystem is not supported or 7 is not root partition.

Actually the picture says there are no available partitions. one likely problem is a gpt partitioned disk and a kernel lacking gpt support. the requested information should allow analysis of that as well as other likely problems.

Jaglover, thanks. I remember reading something about that in the handbook, and ignoring it since I had no idea how to do it syntax wise/was hoping it wouldnt be too important. Its here: http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/handbook-amd64.xml?part=1&chap=10 "if you have SCSI devices, you should add doscsi as kernel option. ". No idea if thats relevant to my situation though. Just providing insight.

Donahue, im grateful for your input as well. Im always astounded by how useful wgetpaste is lol.
fdisk -l | wgetpaste: http://bpaste.net/show/102083/
lspci -k | wgetpaste: http://bpaste.net/show/102084/
wgetpaste /usr/src/linux/.config: http://bpaste.net/show/102085/
wgetpaste /usr/src/linux/etc/lilo.conf: (It was actually located in /etc/lilo.conf) http://bpaste.net/show/102086/
wgetpaste /usr/src/linux/etc/fstab: (/etc/fstab) http://bpaste.net/show/102089/

If theres something wrong, please tell me and I'll change it; even if its just a test, I'll consider it.

Also, if theres something wrong with the partitions, I dont mind going through the installation again to fix it.

Reinstall is hardly a solution with Gentoo. Right now, after reviewing your links posted, I'd say either initrd you built with your genkernel is incomplete or the drive order is changed and your root is not on sda after booting.

workin' on a reply.
tweaks, nothing obviously wrong.
gpt partitioning not involved
boot dvd, mount gentoo partitions, run:
Code:
ls -l /mnt/gentoo/boot | wgetpaste
(or equivalent from chroot) post url

Code:

Gentoo-20121221 ~ # mount /dev/sda7 /mnt/gentoo
Gentoo-20121221 ~ # mount /dev/sda5 /mnt/gentoo/boot
Gentoo-20121221 ~ # mount -t proc none /mnt/gentoo/proc

Gentoo-20121221 ~ # chroot /mnt/gentoo /bin/bash
Gentoo-20121221 / # source /etc/profile
Gentoo-20121221 / # export PS1="(chroot) $PS1"
(chroot) Gentoo-20121221 / # ls -l /mnt/gentoo/boot | wgetpaste
ls: cannot access /mnt/gentoo/boot: No such file or directory
No input read. Nothing to paste. Aborting.

Do not chroot before running ls -l /mnt/gentoo/boot | wgetpaste or if you do make it ls -l /boot | wgetpaste.

suggest disconnect the sdb and sdc drives if feasible, boot dvd, mount gentoo partitions, enter chroot, run

genkernel --menuconfig all

none of this corrects nothing obviously wrong, just eliminates possible driver fratricide, adds some items that have been reported to help with similar problems. After the edit, exit menucnfig saving the configuration and allow genkernel to run to completion.

edit lilo.cnf:

the multiple choice reboot is to allow checking the possibility that sdb and sdc being connected has changed sda drive name
during the reboot enter bios and check that the hard drive controller is in ahci mode

should run for a few minutes, ls -l /boot when done and check: map, initramfs, and system.map have new recent date times

If the kernel is compiled this way, use of an initramfs should not be required to boot. The fdisk paste still lists /dev/sdb; the possibility of gentoo being on /dev/sdb as a result of kernel name choices being different between the dvd and the hard drive kernels still exists. Propose lilo.conf provide two choices, root=/dev/sda no initrd, root=/dev/sdb no initrd, Try each in turn hoping 1 works and identifies the problem.

proposed lilo.conf:
Quote:
boot=/dev/sda
prompt
timeout=50
default=gentoo-a

image=/boot/kernel-genkernel-x86_64-3.8.13-gentoo
label=gentoo-a
read-only
append="root=/dev/sda7 rootfstype=ext4"

image=/boot/kernel-genkernel-x86_64-3.8.13-gentoo
label=gentoo-b
read-only
append="root=/dev/sdb7 rootfstype=ext4"

image=/boot/kernel-genkernel-x86_64-3.8.13-gentoo
label=gentoo
read-only
append="real_root=/dev/sda7 rootfstype=ext4"
append="init=/bin/bb"

other=/dev/sda1
label=windows


rerun lilo

Some things could not be excluded, such as SCSI target support, Parallel SCSI (SPI) Transport Attributes, etc. They were modular in curly brackets and could not be excluded.

Also, did you accidentally paste bootloader instructions into the kernel config, or is there some way I can add them to the kernel config?

edit:
Code:

(chroot) Gentoo-20121221 / # /sbin/lilo
Warning: LBA32 addressing assumed
Added gentoo-a  *
Added gentoo-b
Fatal: Image name, label, or alias is too long: 'gentoo-a-initram'
(chroot) Gentoo-20121221 / #


edit2:
Rebooted without editing any of the greentext and this was the result:
Code:

boot:
Loading gentooEBDA is big; kernel setup stack overlaps LILO second stage.

let me work up and paste a complete manual kernel config for you based on pappy's kernel seeds
boot cd, mount gentoo partitions,
Code:
 wgetpaste /mnt/gentoo/proc/cpuinfo
wgetpaste /mnt/gentoo/etc/portage/make.conf
ls /mnt/gentoo/stage3* | wgetpaste
post url's

Heres where Im at now:

you were in the chroot where /mnt/gentoo is empty

if in the chroot:
Code:
wgetpaste /proc/cpuinfo
wgetpaste /etc/portage/make.conf
ls /stage3* | wgetpaste


These additional changes to menuconfig should allow further deletions in SCSI Transports --->

genkernel took a long time, are you sure i cant edit the same settings using make menuconfig? never the less, its done. i also updated and reran lilo. here are the outputs you requested:

(chroot) Gentoo-20121221 / # wgetpaste /proc/cpuinfo
Your paste can be seen here: http://bpaste.net/show/102328/
(chroot) Gentoo-20121221 / # wgetpaste /etc/portage/make.conf
Your paste can be seen here: http://bpaste.net/show/102329/
(chroot) Gentoo-20121221 / # ls /stage3* | wgetpaste
Your paste can be seen here: http://bpaste.net/show/102330/
(chroot) Gentoo-20121221 / #

edit:
LILO still gives me this right after boot:
"Loading gentooEBDA is big; kernel setup stack overlaps LILO second stage."
It is the only line it prints and just hangs there.

edit2:
I read somewhere that LILO is only able to handle up to a certain file size for the kernel. If this is my case, and it is whats hindering this boot, I am willing to switch to grub or something else that will work.

correct, just making sure you own it, allows the auto part to work in situ
