But, there are some situations where the old-school method isn't optimal.

By "boot", we mean the process by which Linux starts after you press the power button on your desktop, laptop or server.You can think of "booting" as a process that starts with your computer's firmware (built-in software) running, and then "finding" the Linux kernel and running it.We used to recommend a BIOS GRUB (GPT) method but it is not consistently supported across a wide variety of hardware.The big question is -- which boot method should you use? If you can reliably boot System Rescue CD and it shows you an initial light blue menu, you are booting the CD using the BIOS, and it's likely that you can thus boot Funtoo Linux using the BIOS.On your remote system, type the following, replacing After you've logged in via SSH, you're now connected remotely to System Rescue CD and can perform the installation steps.

In this section, we'll learn about the different ways that Funtoo Linux can boot from a hard disk.If you're new to installing a Gentoo-based Linux, or new to Linux entirely -- welcome!We have attempted to make these installation instructions understandable to new users as well.In order to install Funtoo Linux, you will first need to boot your computer using a Linux-based Live CD or USB stick.We recommend the Gentoo-based System Rescue CD as it contains lots of tools and utilities and supports both 32-bit and 64-bit systems.If you need to use UEFI to boot, we recommend not using the MBR at all for booting, as some systems support this, but others don't.
