The Hyperbola GNU/Linux-libre OS in 32bit computers, the minimal CPU model are i686 generation processors with support Physical Address Extension (such as Intel Pentium Pro, Intel Pentium II and AMD Athlon series), except that does not support Physical Address Extension (such as Intel Atom, Intel Tolapai, AMD K6 and AMD Geode series), i586 generation processors and lower (such as Intel Pentium, Intel Quark and AM D K5)
In Milky Way v0.4 live image add rEFInd (32bit) bootloader, but rEFInd bootloaders does not support x86_64 OS in EFI 32bit (on x86_64 computers) and i686 OS in EFI 64bit firmware.
In Milky Way v0.3 live image the rEFInd (64bit) replaces SYSLINUX (EFI 64bit) bootloader.
In Milky Way v0.2 live image the SYSLINUX (EFI 64bit) replaces Systemd-boot bootloader.
In Milky Way v0.1 live image use Systemd-boot bootloader to boot in EFI 64bit computers only.
