[opensuse] boot32.efi for 64 bits processor and Leap
Hello,

We see more and more often very small but powerfull computers, atom multicore 64 bits, but with UEFI 32 bits firmware.

I have one now ("It Works TW891" paid 129€ - 32Gb ssd + 2Gb ram, runs almost perfectly windows 10 32bits or Debian 64bits).

these computers can be installed with 64 bits distros, but they need absolutely a 32 bits loader.

Right now I on ly know of the hybrid debian 32/64bits dvd to be able to install.

Notice that *only the loader* have to be 32bits, the generic name being boot32.efi

copying a generic loader to the Leap EFI folder allows booting, and probably installing (I couldn't make all the tests), but the generic one gives only a grub prompt, not handy.

Could it be possible to add to the Leap isos this 32 bits loader? only this one have to be 32bits, AFAIK nothing else have to be changed.

thanks
jdd
