My computer failed to boot after installing Gentoo. I have Windows 7 installed in sda1. sda2, sda5, sda6 are all Windows partions. sda7 is /boot, sda8 is swap and sda9 is root partition.

I followed the Gentoo installation guide and there are no errors during installation, grub2 told me that it found the linux kernel image and Windows 7 installation, but now it fails to boot. The error message is as follows,
Code:
attempt to read or write outside of partition
entering rescue mode

could somebody tell me how to fix it to dual boot Gentoo and Windows 7?

Post your /etc/fstab and /boot/grub/grub.cfg
Also you can post fdisk -l > fdisk (which will produce output of fdisk in file called gdisk) or gdisk -l > gdisk (same as previous)

It's the problem with my partition, I've already fixed that. Thanks.
