I am trying to install CentOS on my intel compute stick which has 32 bit architecture using Intel Atom Processor.

(Intel compute stick CS125 with 32 Bit Atom processor)

The link to kernel is here: http://isoredirect.centos.org/altarch/7/isos/i386/

I download the ISO and burnt it to my usb drive (/dev/sdb and not /dev/sdbX) using dd command. However in the UEFI boot screen, this bootable iso is not detected.

I did not have issues with normal CentOS. It detected fine and took me to installation menu. But since that was 64 bit, it was pretty much useless.

Why doesnt 32 bit CentOS ISO detect and start the install in UEFI mode?

  • Are you using "secure boot" setting in your BIOS? – Paradox Apr 7 at 16:28
  • @Paradox Nope - that is the first thing I disabled. Just to add I burnt an alpine 32 bit image to usb and that booted perfectly fine. I am now venturing to fully install it and make it bootable from disk, but id love to be able to install CentOS for its sheer power. – Ace Apr 7 at 16:32
  • Could you go further on the details of your system (Intel Compute Stick model, CentOS release, ISO used, etc.) so it will be easier to help you out? – Paradox Apr 7 at 16:32
  • @Paradox The link to CentOS is in the question. It is alt arch i386. Device is Intel compute stick CS125 with 32 bit intel atom – Ace Apr 7 at 16:46
  • Could you edit your question to add these details? (It is difficult to keep track of this in the comments and these information could be useful for future reference for others readers. Regarding my request on CentOS release/ISO, I just wanted to be sure you were using 1810 release and which one e.g. "Minimal". – Paradox Apr 7 at 16:48
