    Sabayon Installation


    Hi
    Im trying to Install Sabayon 3.26 64 bit version.
    The sequence of events are as follows:
    I have DVD RW and CD RW Drive. install disc is DVD in DVDRW drive
    When I select Install Sabayon in text or graphics mode, it tries to mount /dev/sr0 and CD RW drive light blinks. I presume /dev/sr1 is DVDRW drive which is supposed to be mounted. If i place ne disk in my CDRW drive i.e. sr0, it displays invalid boot disk message and doesn check sr1
    If i dont place ne thing in CDRW drive, I get "Kernel Panic" error message.

    Am confused. Pls help

    Cheers

    Try choosing the option to boot live. Then, install from the desktop.

    Have you tried unplugging your CDRW drive?

    I think your DVD disk is corrupted and cannot boot. Try downloading again and burn the dvd at a slower speed.

    You should probably go as slow as 10x or even slower.
    I normally burn at 4x just to be on the safe side.
    Burning at higher speeds causes strange errors, like the one you received.

    Are you sure your PC is set to boot from the CDROM first? It could be that it's automatically trying your harddrive and not finding a suitable boot device on it.

    Yep first boot device priority is CD rOm in bios.

    CDRW drive is primary slave, DVDRW drive is secondary master.

    Should i try to make DVDRW drive Primary???

    The cdrw is being detected first not the dvdrw. You may have to disconnect the cdrw to force the boot from the dvdrw.
