Boot usb for efi in 32 bits

Hi I dont know if this is the problem but at least for some distros that didnt boot y I created a 32 efi boot image and I could boot. But I couldn't do it for arch linux which is the distro that I want. The device is a window 8 tablet that I'm evaluating to change to linux. the problem is that creating a usb with rufus didn't work for arch ISO but for other distros did it.
Anyone who had the same problem?

Read... … re_bitness
and follow the link 'Booting 64-bit kernel on 32-bit UEFI'.

No, it didn't "fix" anything. It just shifted the brokeness one space to the right. - jasonwryan

Re: Boot usb for efi in 32 bits


I followed this guide for creating a bootable Arch-iso on my tablet, which also has the efi 32bit (ia32). … tall_media

Installation afterwards is normal and if you are using GRUB, remember to set --target=i386-efi (also described in the GRUB wiki).
