OK, so I'm posting a reply on my own situation, but if will help anyone else, I don't mind being shamefaced once more. I don't even know what blue screen of death really is, however, I was in text only mode and nothing came up because I did not remove the extents in the ets/fstab file when upgrading kernels and drivers to .29 & subsequently inadvertently, Deleted the previous kernel . So, I Installed 5.1 with new kernel. Network management gave me issues, so I deleted it as written on someone's former post and just relied on wicd. Wow! I'm on! I think it was throdon to thank or fitzcarraldo. Anyway I learned I need to read up on everything, get used to the command line and hang tough with sabayon, because I just love it and didn't want to give up on it.
