    I changed my HDD to an 80GB Maxtor. I still cannot get Sabayon to work, and I still have the same booting problems with the other live cds. Sabayon is still giving me the exact same problem. I was wondering if there is a way to install it without using the LVM or whatever because I think that might be what is causing the problems. Sorry to dig up this topic, but I was out of town and haven't really had time to post this until now.

    As far as I remember, you should be able to get rid of any logical volumes during the stage of the installation where you set up the partitions.

    Just get rid of the default suggestion, and set everything up in primary partitions. Hope that works for you.

    Just got back from another vacation and I tried installing without the LVMs. It still didn't work, still gives me the same grub prompt and says that the kernel must be loaded before I can do anything. I installed the bootloader to the MBR of the hard drive in question, so there shouldn't be any problem right?
