are you multi booting ?
do you use multiple hard drives ?
what options were selected on the bootloader page of the installer during installation, such as, /dev/sda or /dev/sdb or was a partition choosen, such as /dev/sda4 ?
which, if any, bootloaders were wrote to the mbr before ?
did you create a /boot partition ? or was everything installed to / ?

if you don't come up with a better solution, i would consider backing up any data you want to save, and then wiping the hd. for a 1tb it would take you about 3 or 4 days using dd urandom to overwrite the whole disk, lol. maybe 4 or 5 hours with shred. i dont think you need to do the whole disk though. i would begin with dd urandom as i know it will wipe the mbr, i cant remember if shred will. start with dd urandom and follow the progress in 2nd terminal. let it overwrite maybe the first 20 or 30gb to make sure nothing strange is there and then just shutdown/restart. then reinstall. sabayon has no problem reinitializing the disk after being wiped. but sometimes it has issues creating new primary partitions. if you have a problem use fdisk on the live dvd to create new ones first.
