    You should try it a few times to be sure. Sometimes it does crash.

    There are 2016A and 2106A models.

    Congratulations. Finally you did it. What did you do ? It will help those noob people like you that struggle it. Maybe you can post those for people to download and put on fat32 usb drive.

    Yes, i did download this and copy both files into usb hdd with fat32 formatted and finish installing. But when boot up, it stop halfway with some false errors lines(something related to failed mounting) as i attached in previous post.

    By the look of it, it seems to fail when pivoting from the initrd to the FS on the disk, well kinda as '/dev' and '/sys' are the special mount points used as kernel interface, but I really never had the pleasure <grin> to debug such errors, at least in the last ten years.

    If you launch the 'journalctl' command, the last lines should have some clues why it's failing, maybe search for 'tmpfs' (should work as a pager, PageUp, PageDown, cursor up, cursor down, and '/' to search forward for a string).

    Did you mixed kernel, initrd or installed a different distribution?

    This seems to be too technical for me to understand as i am not familiar with linux command. :mellow: i follow the step from @3mam4me and it just halt in mid of booting after success install and my keyboard cannot response to any input.

    Hi - as i have read, some people are interestet about Gentoo on internal HD, I´ll tell you my last experience about that.

    At first - as I know - only 10XX/11XX phat are supported !!
    (mine is a CUH-1116A)

    I installed Gentoo V7 - gentoops4kdebeta7.tar.xz - with the (I think) latest kernel on internal HD.
    (unfortunally, the file was deleted in the net... - and I can´t upload 3 GB) -
    but I´m sure, you can take any other gentoo version or distri which has tar.gz.

    V7 is not the latest gentoo version, but it was the latest version that was delivered in tar.gz,
    because as you see the latest gentoo was deliveredas an img and I was not able to build my own tar.gz from them.
    (maybe @mircoho will upload the latest as tar.gz...)

    - then I took the latest kernel from the gentoo/linux page from here (5.3.7 - without debug) - see the screeshot at the end.
    you also can test some other kernels (f.ex. Baikal ones..) - you only have to copy them to the right path on the HD
    (you can do that after installing - I tried 3 different ones...)
    https://github.com/ps4gentoo/ps4-linux/releases

    - the intiramfs.cpio.gz from here -
    (for my opinion, you can´t change the initramfs, because there is the "referenc" to the install commands for internal HD)
    https://drive.google.com/file/d/1d16yWE04cDwrnYz8v8qaoCbKz2kLRiIb/view

    I did the install procedur, as posted here on PSXHAX:
    https://www.psxhax.com/threads/inst...ard-drive-hdd-5-05-loader-payload.6800/page-6

    To load the linux from internal, in the past I had realy trouble because it was very unstable,
    but yesterday fortuitously I saw that the linux always (!) load, when I activeted HEN 2.3.1 befor activating the linux payload.

    I take the linux payload from my own host on the NAS, and to be honest I donn´t know exacly with version it is.
    It is a html file and its a VRam 2 payload - I think I converted the bin file to html from the original download
    that was together with the initramfs. (see the link above)
    If anyone has interesting, I can upload them.

    This is a little confuse and not real one direction -
    I´m also not sure, if everything is 100% correct that I written, but in this way it works for me.

    Everything is at your own risk - I do not responibility for any damage!!

    All credits go to @mircoho for the work on gentoo for PS4 and (I think) to @itmania for the initramfs
    and all the developer for the linux payload. (sorry - I dont know them all by name...)

    Yeah, Its always best to run hen first.:)

    The reason is when you first run any payload on a freshly booted PS4 it has to patch the kernel first and then run the payload.
    If you run hen first, the PS4 kernel is already patched when the time comes to run the linux payload so all the linux payload has to do is boot linux.

    If you just try and run the linux payload from a fresh boot the process of patching the kernel and then booting linux is very unstable, hence more chance of a kernel panic.
