    Ubuntu on Bay trail(N2810)?

    Hi,

    I stupidly bought the worst processor imaginable for Linux, and I can't return it, so I'm stuck with a $400 brick unless I can fix it.

    It seems to be that the N2810 Bay trail can only run 32-bit UEFI, where every distro uses 64 bit UEFI. Has anyone with this processor managed to install Ubuntu, or any other distro?

    Some links, but do not know anything about making it work.

    Don't ship 32-bit UEFI firmware on x86
