    Thanks to all the replies and extra details on booting from FAT32 partition and allocating the rest of a UFD ISO to other formats.

    . . . . . . In regards to the UEFI specification, it states that UEFI must be able to boot from FAT32. That does not prevent manufacturers from enabling their UEFI firmware from booting from NTFS - but it is not a requirement of the UEFI specification to do so.
    Thanks, that definitely solves my curiosity. Actually to my limited knowledge FAT32 doesn't really seem all that limiting anyhow to current logistics.

    The practical limit of FAT32 is the 4 GB file size limit.
