Those are intel x86_64 "Merom" CPUs.. did you test it with an x86_64
version ? I know that with 2GB RAM some things may run poorly..but
so
does Windows.

If you try to boot any 64-bit medium, you get the error message
telling you to use a 32-bit system.

This may be because of 32-bit UEFI (as with the tablets I wrote about
yesterday). If they are shipped with 32-bit Windows by the vendor, it's
quite likely this problem.

Our installer AFAIK doesn't support installation of 64-bit openSUSE on
machines with 32-bit UEFI but once you get the system there (e.g. by
copying root filesystem from a virtual machine) and set the bootloader
up (which may be a bit tricky, I admit), it does work.

The support for EFI mixed mode is enabled in 42.3 kernel but I'm not
sure if its grub has all necessary patches. If not, you can find grub2
package with them e.g. in home:mkubecek:baytrail OBS project.
