Does the raspberry (3b+) boot fine from microsd when it is formatted with gpt?

@mterwoord I haven't tried it myself but I'm all ears if you find something. See raspberrypi/linux#1060

well, let me put it another way: i'm using mender, but i need/want a fifth partition, which means i have to fork mender (currently)

You can always use an extended 4th partition with more partitions inside @mterwoord
I'm not familiar with the mender specific setup but I don't see why this wouldn't be possible.

mender generates an sdimg, but it contains 4 priamry partitions. I dont like to completely fork and change that. I'll shoot a question in their group tonight.

Yes, sounds like something you need to figure out with them. But we need to figure out if the firmware is able to use a GPT partition in the first place - for boot blobs.
