Question Will a 32-bit Linux boot on 64-bit systems live from USB?


I want to burn tahrpup on a USB drive to use it anywhere on any PC, and for more compatibility I chose the 32-bit version.

Will it work on 64-bit systems?

Uefi and secure boot may cause you to change some stuff.
Intel Atoms have a goofy loader problem that may not allow a general use usb to work.

I use 32bit Ubuntu "try/load" live-usb's all the time, on 64bit systems (mainly laptops).

Just getting tired of maintaining a 2x3 matrix of every load on usb... 32bit/64bit, and Intel/AMD, and desktop/server.
