Hello. I am trying to install Sabayon 8 amd64 K But I cannot go beyond the first few steps.
After selcting Languages, Keyboard, Basic HDD and then selecting those to be mounted a small window appears "Finding Devices" and the installer closes.
The same thing happened with a mistakenly downloaded Sabayon 8 x86 K.
Both versions were checked with md5summer and were ok.
It was suggested to try installation as root but could not begin a root session. "Session was locked by Sabayon"
My system is:
AMD Athlon II X2 245
Nvidia GeForce GTS 450
I have prepared the live system (runs fine) for logs as found in the forums but am unsure which options will be useful in this instance.
Any help is appreciated.
I have links to all pastebin options except fdisk -l which seems to have frozen the computer.
Messages after reboot and one install attempt.

Running the installer through the terminal as SU I get the message 'No volume groups found'. I have checked this in other forum posts but they mostly have already made the installation. I can access all hard drives through konqueror.
"sudo killall udevadm" as suggested in another topic gives 'no process found'
