Im working on finding a Gentoo install disc at the moment or some other workaround. I may have to build a install disc from scratch. I was told on Gentoo-embedded that GCC4 will not work but GCC5 and GCC6 shows promise

Installing this version of Linux was fairly easy. Even booted with UEFI turned on but I had to turn off Secure Boot. After installation, you have to install the fglrx driver through Menu > Administration > Driver Manager.

Also, before you start updating, the WiFi has an issue after a few minutes of being connected, it will disconnect and won’t allow you to reconnect without a reboot. To resolve this issue, you have to create a file in /etc/modprobe.d call it rtl8723be.conf . Inside this file type in this:

options rtl8723be fwlps=N ips=N

Reboot, then update your repos with apt-get update and then apt-get upgrade

This will solidify your installation..
