Lemma 15.9.3. Let $A$ be a ring, let $I \subset A$ be an ideal. Let $\mathop{\mathrm{Spec}}(A/I) = \coprod _{j \in J} \overline{U}_ j$ be a finite disjoint open covering. Then there exists an étale ring map $A \to A'$ which induces an isomorphism $A/I \to A'/IA'$ and a finite disjoint open covering $\mathop{\mathrm{Spec}}(A') = \coprod _{j \in J} U'_ j$ lifting the given covering.

**Proof.**
This follows from Lemma 15.9.2 and the fact that open and closed subsets of Spectra correspond to idempotents, see Algebra, Lemma 10.21.3.
