Managing Alpine Linux

Create a UEFI bootable usb stick

  • Download the alpine iso
  • Create one fresh new partition on the USB stick - NEEDS TO BE GPT
    • partition type must be EFI (ef00)
  • Format the partition with mkfs.vfat
  • mount the ISO (mount -o loop /path/to/iso /somewhere)
  • mount the USB stick (mount /dev/sdX1 /somewhere_else)
    • copy files from the alpine ISO: cd /somewhere; tar c . | ( cd /somewhere_else; tar xv ; sync)
  • umount the usb stick
  • umount the ISO

You can now use the USB stick for UEFI booting.
