I'm interested if Raspberry pi 4 bootloader does support boot from GPT partitioned disk?


The boot partition MUST be the first partition on a MBR medium.

The root partition can be on another medium, which can be GPT, provided it is identified correctly (PARTUUID or device).

  • @PhilipCouling At the time this was posted you could only boot from SD. Changes to the EEPROM have now made this possible. It is still impossible to boot from GPT, which was the question. – Milliways Jun 1 at 22:37
  • @PhilipCouling Not from memory, but if you are prepared to search through the Foundation website you will find extensive discussion (and some criticisms of the Foundation) about this. – Milliways Jun 1 at 22:45
  • @PhilipCouling I have answered over 2000 questions on this site. Many are now obsolete. There are not enough hours in the day to revise every answer when the Foundation makes a change. It is enough effort to keep the tutorials up to date. – Milliways Jun 1 at 22:53
  • You've actually spend more time arguing with me than it would have taken to make the edit I suggested. I'm not telling you off for not doing it sooner, just now we've had this conversation the usual etiquette is to update the answer to bring it into line. I'd do it myself only SO guidelines say I shouldn't make edits that directly disagree with the original author's intent. – Philip Couling Jun 1 at 23:03
