Solved Looking for i386 linux live CD with 32 bit EFI boot

Specs: Linux (any flavor), Intel Atom x5-Z8300 (x86)
I've been working on this for a couple of days now. I have a SBC (LattePanda) with an Intel Atom x5-Z8300 (x86) with 32 bit EFI only (no legacy support) boot. I need to find a Linux live CD image (not an installer, I need to leave the hard drive as is) that will work with this system. Does one exist? If so, where can I find it? If not, is there a good tutorial for someone who doesn't know what they are doing to create one?

Almost all Linux distros work as Live CDs (actually DVDs these days due to size). Have a look at the release notes for Linux Mint 18.1 Xfce 32-bit:

I did look at that one. The 32 bit version does not have EFI support.

✔ Best Answer
Why is it that you won't run a 64-bit OS? You have a 64-bit CPU.

Thank you. The documentation on the LattePanda led me to believe that it was a 32bit version of the processor. The processor is 64bit, the UEFI is 32bit. Finding an image with 32bit support is much easier for 64bit architecture.
