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?

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

Hi,

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

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