Re: Is it ok to wipe hard drive before installing sabayon

Hi, Phuong. Is your Win10 system UEFI or BIOS? Are you installing from LiveDVD or USB? I have systems that are UEFI and BIOS. If I install to the UEFI system with an ISO image burned to a USB stick using unetbootin, it installs Sabayon with the UEFI security, but that makes dual bootability a bit di...

Re: Making USB sticks bootable

Hello, Paul.

I have made USB sticks bootable by using unetbootin to install the ISO image on the USB.
It was very straight-forward.
If your system supports UEFI, then I suspect it will default to a UEFI installation.

If the reset button "fixes" the issue, then that implies that the config/controls for systemd are out of sync with re...

Re: Immediate Post-Upgrade Shutdown/Reboot Failure

I don't know that this will help, but my desktop system is AMD and runs a Radeon GPU. The other system (laptop) runs an Intel CPU and an on-board GPU, either Nvidia or Intel; I can't be sure, because I've been up all night trying to figure this out. It looks like this isn't a hardware-dependent issu...
