1 I have a new SSD 480GB drive and I'm trying to partition it. It was some time before I went through this so I found this information:
4 But they omitted the Boot partition.
5 Device Start End Size Type
6 /dev/sda1 2048 6143 2M BIOS boot partition
7 /dev/sda2 6144 4200447 2G Linux swap
8 /dev/sda3 4200448 117231374 53.9G Linux filesystem
10 There is Bios Boot 2MB but no Boot partition where kernel is located.
12 The instruction from official Gentoo web-page is difference from display I'm getting on my screen when I use "fdisk"
15 I don't have an option of extended partition not can I make Boot partition /dev/sda2 (128MB) bootable by pressing "a" in fdisk.
