1 Well,
3 I just got this new HP A8 laptop.
5 After setting up the default windows, I modified
6 the bios boot order to use the internal DVD. Then
7 I inserted a 12.0 lived DVD. It put for
8 small gentoo symbols across the top, then went
9 blank after 3 minutes. The DVD drive was very active
10 for about 5 minutes then silence?
13 Any suggestions or install guides are most welcome.
14 It's been a few years since I installed Gentoo on
15 a laptop and lots has change. Right now, I'm downloading
16 the 12.1 liveDVD to see if it will boot that. Both
17 were the amd64-multilib version. The lived DVD work
18 on other (older) 64amd machines I have.....
19 If not then its on to to knoppix or ubuntu to
20 see it will boot any linux distro.
22 Years ago, when I last did a dual boot install, there
23 was a windows method for shrinking the windows
24 partition. Then I repartitioned the drive and put
25 gentoo on those new partitions. Has that approached,
26 using grub changed? The guides I seen to be finding
27 via google, look dated.
29 It a dv7 model AtB11UA (6C23CL?) from Costco. I got a week
30 or 2 to get the dual boot working correctly, or it
31 goes back to Costco; so any advice is welcome.
34 Any feedback is welcome.
