Hey, I was trying to partition my SSD and when formatting the EFI partition it has been throwing me this error.

Code:
gentoo # mkfs.vfat -F 32 /dev/sda2
mkfs.fat 4.0 (2016-05-06)
WARNING: Not enough clusters for a 32 bit FAT!


Any idea how to fix this?

Can you post the size of the partitions on the disc ?

Kippiis,

Welcome to Gentoo.

I suspect that /dev/sda2 is your 2M bios_boot partition. Grub uses that without any files sytem.
Post the output of
Code:
fdisk -l /dev/sda
and tell what each partition is for.
