All Aarch64 SBCs (Single board computer) I am aware of do not support UEFI 
boot, but require a (more or less) board specific boot image. For the 
Pinebook, your best bet is with the Pine64 Contrib image:


But although this will likely boot, you will get much less than you might 

1. No graphics on LCD
2. No graphics via HDMI
3. Wireless may work - probably not

With some luck, HDMI will be ready end of the year, but this will *not* 
include 2D/3D acceleration nor hardware video decoding.

For the current state of the A64 support, see here:
