Installing Gentoo Linux on Sony Vaio VPC-Z13 // Ставим Gentoo линукс на Sony Vaio VPC-Z13

  1. get the EASEUS Partition Manager Home Edition – it’s free and less than 10M in size
  2. shrink the windows main NTFS partition from 128G downto 70G (for example)
  3. create a new 58G partition on free space. type must be Unformatted, I made a Logical partition.
  4. get the System Rescue CD iso and burn to CD or DVD
  5. boot the laptop from CD you just burnt (use F2 to enter BIOS setup)
  6. get Gentoo’s stage3-amd64 and portage-latest archives

Volume0 is a whole Vaio’s RAID drive (128G)
Volume01 is a some kind of recovery partition (8G)
Volume02 is a Win7 boot partition (100M)
Volume03 is a 70G C: (NTFS)
Volume05 is a unformatted 58G partition – Gentoo will live here
