Hi Mika,

thx for the link. For the previous attempts I just dd'ed the ISO onto
the USB-stick. Now I used GNU parted to create the GPT and the FAT32
partition so I don't need a Mac to create a grml-stick to boot a Mac:

(parted) mklabel gpt
(parted) mkpartfs primary fat32 32k 1024MB
WARNING: you are attempting to use parted to operate on (mkpartfs) a 
file system.
Ignore/Cancel? i
(parted) toggle 1
(parted) print
Model: SanDisk Cruzer Micro (scsi)
Disk /dev/sdc: 1025MB
Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B
Partition Table: gpt

Number  Start   End     Size    File system  Name     Flags
  1      31,7kB  1025MB  1025MB  fat32        primary  boot

(parted) quit


Works fine with grml64-2013-09 and the "No Kernel-Mode-Setting" boot
option (nVidia graphics). Too bad I need a special thumbdrive for Macs
but at least now I know about this ;)

Regards, FLorian
