Litte tip: this list prefers bottom posting ;)

Yes I know fat32 has a 4GB file size limit, hence the 4GB partition ;)
On the other hand I also didn't want it to eat up too much space since
it will be almost always empty.

Regarding efi you make a good point, I haven't thought of it because
currently I don't have any machine that supports efi.
