Suggested Boot Partition is too small

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing.

The suggested boot partition size is way too low. My first IA64 build (an HP rx2660 on 2016-09-xx) involved a kernel + ram-disk whose total size was 34 MB (you suggested 32 MB). I think a size of 64 or 96 would be more appropriate.

I can think of a couple of good reasons why partition #1 should start at 1 rather than 0 so here are my first partitioning commands.

1) parted -a optimal /dev/sda 2) unit mib 3) mkpart primary fat32 1 97
