  1. Dear Ultrabug,
    I am now installing gentoo on my dell xps 13 but I can not boot the USB install media. Would you mind share with what settings the BIOS need to be done to get it work? My email:
    Thank you very much.

    1. Hello Owen, as I said in my email : “If the most recent Gentoo live install does not work for you, I strongly suggest to use the latest SystemRescueCD live USB and install your Gentoo from there !”

      Hope this helps
