>=512 MiB for the UEFISYS partition?

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? /// (t) 18:27, 26 July 2012 (UTC)

UEFI bootable USB

I create a MBR partition table before I create the FAT32 partition itself. It works for me, but I don't know if it is required.

"startup.nsh" no longer needed when creating bootable UEFI USB install media

since install media 2012.10.06... you no longer need "startup.nsh" as it's now using gummiboot... however you still need to label the EFI partition like stated in the wiki. need another method to find out the ISO label as the current method depends on the content of the "startup.nsh"... maybe just mount the ISO, read label then umount? abit much though or just state something like "ARCH_[iso created year][iso created month]" assuming ISO naming is consistent
