 h2. 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)@
