I have a packard bell ze7 it's a x64 machine and it only has BIOS.
Before I got it, I thought that's a non-existent combination...
I'm building Gentoo by hand, my own initramfs, all that good stuff. I've done it before a couple of times(successfully), and as it's not a sufficient number, I'm not sure if I'm doing everything correctly. The reason I'm asking -- I haven't done it with BIOS and I haven't used GRUB, and I'm getting an error. I'm booting from grub prompt(because it doesn't boot by itself for some reason):
boot. And I'm getting "Kernel panic - not syncing: attempted to kill init!" (Code: Bad RIP value)
So I'm wondering if it has anything to do with the machine being x64 and having only BIOS at the same time?
