    There is no luck required. Just follow the instructions on gentoo handbook and you'll be fine.

    Considering that there really is no installer, you almost broke your own mbr.

    As I said before, if you follow the installation guide to the "T", you should have no problems. And as qub implied...any problems you have, we can most likely solve here.

    How big is the hard drive that you are installing on? Better yet...post your partition scheme.

    At what point does it tell you this?
