Description Artem Kurashov 2020-10-20 22:55:39 UTC
Is it possible to add support for 32-bit UEFI in the x86_64 DVD?

There are some laptops (for example - Irbis NB43) with 32-bit UEFI support only. These laptops do not support either the CSM boot.

At present time people looks for workarounds: https://nwrickert2.wordpress.com/2018/11/28/opensuse-leap-15-0-and-32-bit-efi/ .

If you open a post about this at opensuse forums, then I will help you with installing.

Yes, it would be nice if this were fully supported.  But I'm not expecting that to happen.

I think that first of all an question to PM/PJ of openSUSE. 
After that feel free to assign it back to "installation" in order to take 
care about it.

This is possibly a duplicate of bug 1172292
Comment 4 Lubos Kocman 2021-02-22 12:37:09 UTC
I think it's a dupe. Let's keep discussion in Bug#1172292. As a note Leap 15.3 will have to mimic SLE-15 behavior as we're using SLE bootloader.
