Maybe someone has faced the same error and would be so kind to share the solution. Or there should be another installation method? I would be happy if you shared the installation method.

Cheers!

I installed Gentoo on Hetzner vservers some years ago using Hetzner - DokuWiki and later migrated them to Hetzner-cloudservers. You're just using the basic rescue image and start a standard gentoo installation from there.

If I had to make a new installation today I probably would give asarubbo/gentoo-stage4 a try.
