Is there a Linux distribution that supports 32bit-(U)EFI? If so, which one and where do I find a bootable ISO?

I'd like to find a Linux distro for my HP Envy X2 which has an Intel Atom CPU and Windows 8 32bit and UEFI preinstalled. The CPU seems to support a 64bit architecture as well.

  • The processor is Intel Atom. Suppose that means no arm architecture.

  • i guess so. its 32-bit? i wasnt aware there was such a thing as an x86 32-bit UEFI machine. is the processor 32-bit or is it just a 32-bit installation?

    The site seems to have some useful tips in my direction. Especially adding a 32bit EFI bootloader to a 32bit Linux distribution. I'll take a closer look there.

    Are you sure? It seems that this notebook have a Intel Core™ M-5Y70, and it is a 64-bit processor - ark.intel.com/products/83612/…

Try Sparkylinux. I was able to load and install Sparkylinux on a Intel machine with atom processer with only uefi 32 bit support.
