This document was written to help you install Funtoo Linux as concisely as possible, with a minimum number of distracting options regarding system configuration.
 
 
These docs assume you have a "PC compatible" computer system with a standard PC BIOS. Many new computers support UEFI for booting, which is a new firmware interface that frequently replaces the older MBR-based BIOS. If you have a system with UEFI, you will want to use this documentation along with the [[UEFI Install Guide]], which will augment these instructions and explain how to get your system to boot. You may need to change your PC BIOS settings to enable or disable UEFI booting. The [[UEFI Install Guide]] has more information on this, and steps on how to determine if your system supports UEFI.
 
 
We also offer a [[ZFS Install Guide]], which augment the instructions on this page for those who want to install Funtoo Linux on ZFS.  If you are installing Funtoo Linux on [[Funtoo Linux Installation on ARM|ARM]] architecture, please see [[Funtoo Linux Installation on ARM]] for notable differences regarding ARM support. An experimental Funtoo Linux build also exists for [[Funtoo Linux Installation on SPARC|SPARC]] platforms. See [[Funtoo Linux Installation on SPARC]].
 
 
New  [[F2FS Install Guide]] is in progress  which will augment the instructions on this page for those who want to install Funtoo Linux on F2FS.
 
 
If you've had previous experience installing Gentoo Linux then a lot of steps will be familiar, but you should still read through as there are a few differences.
 
 
== Installation Overview ==
 
 
This is a basic overview of the Funtoo installation process:
 
 
# [[#Live CD|Download and boot the live CD of your choice]].
 
# [[#Prepare Hard Disk|Prepare your disk]].
 
# [[#Creating filesystems|Create]] and [[#Mounting filesystems|mount]] filesystems.
 
# [[#Installing the Stage 3 tarball|Install the Funtoo stage tarball]] of your choice.
 
# [[#Chroot into Funtoo|Chroot into your new system]].
 
# [[#Downloading the Portage tree|Download the Portage tree]].
 
# [[#Configuring your system|Configure your system]] and [[#Configuring your network|network]].
 
# [[#Configuring and installing the Linux kernel|Install a kernel]].
 
# [[#Installing a Bootloader|Install a bootloader]].
 
# [[#Finishing Steps|Complete final steps]].
 
# [[#Restart your system|Reboot and enjoy]].
 
 
=== Live CD ===
 
 
Funtoo doesn't provide an "official" Funtoo Live CD, but there are plenty of good ones out there to choose from. A great choice is the Gentoo-based [http://www.sysresccd.org/ System Rescue CD] as it contains lots of tools and utilities and supports both 32-bit and 64-bit systems. For a generation 2 Hyper-V system, the [http://www.ubuntu.com/ Ubuntu] desktop install DVD as of version 14.04.1 works well enough. Gentoo CDs don't support EFI boot, and the System Rescue CD lacks appropriate graphics support for Hyper-V as of version 4.4.0.
 
 
It is also possible to install Funtoo Linux using many other Linux-based live CDs. Generally, any modern bootable Linux live CD or live USB media will work. See [[Requirements|requirements]] for an overview of what the Live Media must provide to allow a problem-free install of Funtoo Linux.
 
 
To begin a Funtoo Linux installation, download System Rescue CD from:
 
 
{{MirrorList}}
 
 
Or, use your preferred live media. Insert it into your disc drive, and boot from it. If using an older version of System Rescue CD, '''be sure to select the <code>rescue64</code> kernel at the boot menu if you are installing a 64-bit system'''. By default, System Rescue CD used to boot in 32-bit mode though the latest version attempts to automatically detect 64-bit processors.

Note

This is a template that is used as part of the Installation instructions, which includes the last "Next Steps" section to direct users to futher setup documents. Templates are being used to allow multiple variant install guides that use most of the same re-usable parts.


Next Steps

If you are brand new to Funtoo Linux and Gentoo Linux, please check out Funtoo Linux First Steps, which will help get you acquainted with your new system. We also have a category for our official documentation, which includes all docs that we officially maintain for installation and operation of Funtoo Linux.

We also have a number of pages dedicated to setting up your system, which you can find below. If you are interested in adding a page to this list, add it to the "First Steps" MediaWiki category.


If your system did not boot correctly, see Installation Troubleshooting for steps you can take to resolve the problem.
