    Do not mix an ESP which does have boot files for UEFI booting, and has to be FAT32 with a /boot partition which has to have a Linux format for kernel & boot files.

    Most desktops do not need a separate /boot partition, but some server type installs or LVM with encryption may want a /boot partition.

    Ah well - I've got a Linux format /boot partition plus / and /swap and /home partitions, seems to work ok.
