I was never told to make it 512 MiB or more, and right now it's 47.86 MiB and it works fine. Are there any other particular reasons for making it that relatively big? [[User:SansNumbers|///]] ([[User talk:SansNumbers|t]]) 18:27, 26 July 2012 (UTC)

Microsoft Documentation mentions the minimum partition size for FAT32 to be 512 MiB. UEFI Spec. in some places mentions just FAT but in some places specifically mentions FAT32. Combining both the cases, having a >=512 MiB FAT32 (not FAT16/FAT12) partition UEFISYS is the best bet for all fimrwares out there, some of which may not support <512 MiB and/or FAT16 partition. -- [[User:The.ridikulus.rat|Keshav P R]] ([[User talk:The.ridikulus.rat|talk]]) 16:18, 20 October 2012 (UTC)

Currently the UEFI boot process in this page is not complete. So I am think of moving it to [[Arch boot process]] and provide a whole boot picture there. Any thoughts? --[[User:Fengchao|Fengchao]] ([[User talk:Fengchao|talk]]) 07:27, 31 March 2016 (UTC)

Merge boot process into Arch boot process

Currently the UEFI boot process in this page is not complete. So I am think of moving it to Arch boot process and provide a whole boot picture there. Any thoughts? --Fengchao (talk) 07:27, 31 March 2016 (UTC)

+1, it's also consistent with [1]. — Kynikos (talk) 08:14, 1 April 2016 (UTC)
