42     <subsection>
43     <title>Introduction</title>
44     <body>
45    
46     <p>
47     The <e>Gentoo Installation CDs</e> are bootable CDs which contain a
48     self-sustained Gentoo environment. They allow you to boot Linux from the CD.
49     During the boot process your hardware is detected and the appropriate drivers
50     are loaded. They are maintained by Gentoo developers.
51     </p>
52    
53     <p>
54     All Installation CDs allow you to boot, set up networking, initialize your
55 nightmorph 1.7 partitions and start installing Gentoo from the Internet.

111     <title>The Stage3 Tarball</title>
112     <body>
113    
114     <p>
115     A stage3 tarball is an archive containing a minimal Gentoo environment,
116     suitable to continue the Gentoo installation using the instructions in this
117     manual. Previously, the Gentoo Handbook described the installation using one of
118     three stage tarballs. While Gentoo still offers stage1 and stage2 tarballs, the
119     official installation method uses the stage3 tarball. If you are interested in
120     performing a Gentoo installation using a stage1 or stage2 tarball, please read
121     the Gentoo FAQ on <uri link="/doc/en/faq.xml#stage12">How do I Install Gentoo
122     Using a Stage1 or Stage2 Tarball?</uri>
123     </p>
124    
125     <p>
126     Stage3 tarballs can be downloaded from <path><keyval
127 nightmorph 1.7 id="release-dir"/>current-stage3/</path> on any of the <uri
128 vapier 1.1 link="/main/en/mirrors.xml">Official Gentoo Mirrors</uri> and are not provided
129     on the LiveCD.

136     <title>Download, Burn and Boot a Gentoo Installation CD</title>
137     <subsection>
138     <title>Downloading and Burning the Installation CDs</title>
139     <body>
140    
141     <p>
142     You have chosen to use a Gentoo Installation CD. We'll first start by
143     downloading and burning the chosen Installation CD. We previously discussed
144     the several available Installation CDs, but where can you find them?
145     </p>
146    
147     <p>
148     You can download any of the Installation CDs from one of our <uri
149     link="/main/en/mirrors.xml">mirrors</uri>. The Installation CDs are located in
150 nightmorph 1.7 the <path><keyval id="release-dir"/>current-iso/</path> directory.
151 vapier 1.1 </p>
152    
153     <p>
154 nightmorph 1.5 Inside that directory you'll find ISO files. Those are full CD images which you
155 vapier 1.1 can write on a CD-R.
156     </p>
157    
158     <p>
159     In case you wonder if your downloaded file is corrupted or not, you can check
160     its MD5 checksum and compare it with the MD5 checksum we provide (such as
161     <path><keyval id="min-cd-name"/>.DIGESTS</path>). You can check the MD5
162     checksum with the <c>md5sum</c> tool under Linux/Unix or <uri
163     link="http://www.etree.org/md5com.html">md5sum</uri> for Windows.
164     </p>
165    
166     <p>
167     Another way to check the validity of the downloaded file is to use GnuPG to
168     verify the cryptographic signature that we provide (the file ending with
169 swift 1.12 <path>.asc</path>). Download the signature file and obtain the public keys whose
170     key ids can be found on the <uri link="/proj/en/releng/index.xml">release
171     engineering project site</uri>.
172 vapier 1.1 </p>

176 swift 1.10 $ <i>gpg --keyserver subkeys.pgp.net --recv-keys 96D8BF6D 2D182910 17072058</i>
177 vapier 1.1 </pre>
178    
179     <p>
180     Now verify the signature:
181     </p>
182    
183 nightmorph 1.7 <pre caption="Verify the files">
184     <comment>(Verify the cryptographic signature)</comment>
185     $ <i>gpg --verify &lt;downloaded iso.DIGESTS.asc&gt;</i>

187     $ <i>sha1sum -c &lt;downloaded iso.DIGESTS.asc&gt;</i>
188 vapier 1.1 </pre>
189    
190     <p>
191     To burn the downloaded ISO(s), you have to select raw-burning. How you
192     do this is highly program-dependent. We will discuss <c>cdrecord</c> and
193     <c>K3B</c> here; more information can be found in our <uri
194     link="/doc/en/faq.xml#isoburning">Gentoo FAQ</uri>.
195     </p>
196    
197     <ul>
198     <li>
199     With cdrecord, you simply type <c>cdrecord dev=/dev/hdc &lt;downloaded iso
200     file&gt;</c> (replace <path>/dev/hdc</path> with your CD-RW drive's
201     device path).
202     </li>
203     <li>
204 nightmorph 1.4 With K3B, select <c>Tools</c> &gt; <c>Burn CD Image</c>. Then you can locate
205     your ISO file within the 'Image to Burn' area. Finally click <c>Start</c>.

212     <title>Booting the Installation CD</title>
213     <body>
214    
215     <p>
216     Once you have burnt your installation CD, it is time to boot it.
217     Remove all CDs from your CD drives, and insert the Gentoo
218     InstallCD. Reboot your system and wait for the EFI firmware to load on
219     the console. The exact option to select will differ depending on your
220     hardware.
221     </p>
222    
223     <p>
224     Most implementations usually present an option directly on the first
225     menu (the EFI Boot Manager). The exact wording would differ but would
226     usually be something like &quot;CD Boot&quot;, &quot;Removable Media
227     Boot&quot; or &quot;Internal Bootable DVD&quot;. Select this option.
228     </p>
229    
230     <p>
231     If your EFI implementation does not present such an option, you can
232     boot the CD using the EFI Shell. All implementations will present an
233     option to enter the shell on the Boot Manager menu. Select this
234     option. The EFI Shell will display a list of usable block devices
235     (<c>blk<b>n</b>:</c>) and also a list of filesystems the EFI Shell
236     can actually access (<c>fs<b>n</b>:</c>).
237     </p>
238    
239     <p>
240     In most cases the option you want will be the <c>fs0:</c> choice;
241     regardless, (provided the CD drive recognizes the CD), you should
242     see one <c>fs<b>n</b></c> entry for your CD drive (the CD drive's
243     EFI device path will contain <c>CDROM</c> in the wording). Enter
244     <c>fs<b>n</b>:</c>, replacing <b>n</b> as required and including
245     the colon, followed by the Enter key. Next just type <c>elilo</c>
246     followed by the Enter key.
247     </p>
248    
249     <p>
250     You will now be greeted by the ELILO boot message and asked to
251     enter a kernel to boot as well as any additional options to pass
252     to the kernel command line. In most cases just hit the Enter key
253     or wait five seconds. Only one kernel is supplied on the IA64
254     InstallCD, the <c>gentoo</c> kernel.
255     </p>
256    
257     <p>
258     Several kernel aliases are provided which add extra options to
259     the kernel command line, which you may have to use instead of
260     the default <c>gentoo</c> option depending on your hardware:
261     </p>
262    
263     <p>
264     The <c>gentoo-serial</c> option forces a serial console on the first
265     serial port (ttyS0) at 9600bps. This may be required on some older EFI
266     implementations where the kernel can't detect what console to use. You
267     should try this option if booting the default <c>gentoo</c> kernel
268     produces no output and if you are using a serial console. If you use a
269     serial console which is not connected to the first serial port you
270     must manually select the console by typing <c>gentoo
271     console=ttyS#,9600</c> where <c>#</c> is the number of the serial
272 nightmorph 1.8 port.
273     </p>
274    
275     <p>
276     The <c>gentoo-ilo</c> option forces a serial console on the <c>ttyS3</c> serial
277     port at 9600bps. This should be used if you're installing using the HP iLO
278     remote console feature.
279 vapier 1.1 </p>
280    
281     <p>
282     The <c>gentoo-sgi</c> option forces a serial console on the <c>ttySG0</c>
283     serial port at 115200bps. This should only be needed on SGI hardware, and
284     if the console is properly selected in the default EFI settings, or if you
285     are using a video console this option should not be required.
286     </p>
287    
288     </body>
289     <body>
290    
291     <p>
292     You can also provide kernel options. They represent optional settings
293     you can (de)activate at will.
294     </p>

303    
304 nightmorph 1.6 <note>
305     The CD will check for "no*" options before "do*" options, so that you can
306     override any option in the exact order you specify.
307     </note>
308 vapier 1.1
309     <p>
310 nightmorph 1.6 You will then be greeted with a boot screen. If you are installing Gentoo on a
311     system with a non-US keyboard, make sure you select the layout at the prompt. If
312     no selection is made in 10 seconds the default (US keyboard) will be accepted
313     and the boot process will continue. Once the boot process completes, you will be
314     automatically logged in to the "Live" Gentoo Linux as "root", the super user.
315     You should have a root ("#") prompt on the current console. If you are using a
316     video console and have a keyboard connected you can also switch to other
317     consoles by pressing Alt-F2, Alt-F3 and Alt-F4. Get back to the one you started
318     on by pressing Alt-F1.
