Backwards Compatible Partition Table

List the device to be partitioned, mine is on /dev/sdc

root # lsblk -o name,size,label,partlabel
root # cgdisk /dev/sdc
Command: o ↵
This option deletes all partitions and creates a new protective MBR.

root # mkfs.vfat -F 32 /dev/sdc2
root # fatlabel /dev/sdc2 "BOOT"

jfs is amazingly fast, use it!

root # mkfs.jfs /dev/sdc3
root # jfs_tune -L "FUNTOO" /dev/sdc3
root # mount /dev/sdc3 /mnt/funtoo
root # mkdir /mnt/funtoo/boot
root # mount /dev/sdc2 /mnt/funtoo/boot

STOP HERE!!! go back to Undead_USB_Install now and start from the top code block.

experimental garbage

root # grub-install --target=x86_64-efi --bootloader-id="FUNTOO" /boot/efi
root # grub-install --target=i386-efi /boot/efi


gparted isn't granular enough to make bios boot partitions to load legacy mode in GPT. if theres a easy way to do this i didn't see it. cgdisk it is.... Device > create partition table > GPT

/dev/sdc1 name: "BOOT Bios" size: 1MiB flags: bios_grub

/dev/sdc2 name: "BOOT" file system: fat32 label: BOOT size: 128MiB flags: boot, esp

/dev/sdc3 name: "funtoo" file system: jfs label: ROOT size: 14.9GiB

egoless grub config generation

edit /etc/grub.d/10_linux to make it pickup the initrd....

          "initramfs-debian-sources-${version}" \
          "initramfs-debian-sources-lts-${version}" \

grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
