    The Intel Compute sticks can boot both 32 and 64 bit. It doesn't
    matter if
    you have the Windows or Linux version. (The difference between the
    is the
    amount of RAM and onboard storage, the firmware is the same)

    I have the Windows one and it boots 64 bit just fine.
    You can select it in the settings. (OS setting: Windows=32 bit,
    Linux=64 bit)

That's great. However, as for all other BayTrail devices out there that
does not support Linux officially I think you're stuck with 32bit.


My point was that it is possible to boot amd64 bit kernels from 32bit UEFI, grub (and therefore, linux) does it. I think even openbsd at least has a 32bit loader, I'd settle for 32bit but the problem is I can't easily boot it.
