Very nice and clear structured ... thank you!
It's WIP...
Yes, I know that DietPi is small SBC centric and I landed here, on DietPi website,
trying to find some information related to OpenVPN running in a Raspbbery Pi2 board.

But also I like the ideea to play with small fanless computer. I have a few around me,
one of them used like a router, another one used for my daily tasks, and of course,
anothers waiting to find time for my future projects/ideas.

So, maybe if you put somewhere in the new #DietPi documentation website, your tutorial,
or a link to 'How to create a DietPi image for x86_64 PCs (UEFI)' could be helpful.

Thanks for your work!

Many thanks for your suggestion, good idea!

We'll for now add references/links from the docs to the GitHub wiki pages instead of porting everything over.

Basically the idea is to keep the GitHub wiki mainly relevant for developers and contributors while the docs should be mainly relevant for end users. Of course there is no strict separation reasonable or possible but I would count image creation more as a developer task while for end users the images we provide should work OOTB.

Just out of interest, what is the reason why you create the x86_64 UEFI image yourself instead of using the one we provide?

Short answer:
Due to my ignorance.
I didn't know how to properly headles boot a consumer mini-PC, but thanks to Joulinar which guided me,
with more sugestions, to find the the right issue, and, of course to solve that, I found the real problem.
Thanks again, Joulinar!

I don't like to borrow people with my 'problems' and usualy I ask a question when I finished all my options which I have to solve the problem on my own. This was my last option, to create the x86_64 UEFI image trying to boot my fanless PC('s).
After I spend all the options trying to solve my issue, whithout succes, I asked in DietPi forum and I received a

Detailed answer here:

Thank again and keep going to improve the DietPi ...
