I try to install Gentoo AMD64 on vmware. I anways do that in VM's before use a real machine, in case troubles.
My real machine is Intel i-5 4670 CPU.
When booting CD it always dies kernel panic and printing dump - looks like exception, but can't see all.
When i try i686 boot CD, it boots, but i need 64 bit system (due to 8 Gb RAM).

What I shold try? May be there is another images? Or something else?

You can use almost any x86_64 CD that boots. Just about all you will need from the CD are tar and choort which are included on most live media. Probably the most popular image to use is the System Rescue CD.

You can't.

You need the 64 bit media. Most places call this the x86_64 architecture although gentoo calls it amd64.

Oh, The System rescue CD includes both kernels. It does seem rather poorly labeled.
