It will be very usefull to put information on the top that all commands need to be run on root and then remove all # signs from text for speedup copy/paste.

I think that this is a horrible idea. An installation should not be cut/paste as there are too many variables to consider. --Grknight (talk) 18:39, 7 November 2018 (UTC)

Formatting UEFI partition error

Following instructions for formating drive for UEFI/GPT:

Discovered that mkfs.vfat 4.0 does not accept partitions 32MB or smaller set by gdisk 1.0.3

root #mkfs.vfat -F 32 /dev/sda2

mkfs.fat 4.0 (2016-05-06) WARNING: Not enough clusters for a 32 bit FAT!

Have to have 33M for /dev/sda2 for mkfs.vfat to format partition
