Postby tpowa » Wed Jan 05, 2022 4:42 pm

Hi community,
today 10.01.2022 I released full archboot ISO support for aarch64.
Homepage changed to reflect all aarch64 support:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Archboot

These images enable you to install archlinuxarm on an aarch64 system.
Apple Mac M1 and above hardware with parallels desktop software (https://www.parallels.com) is working.

It is availabe on the archboot home:
https://pkgbuild.com/~tpowa/archboot-images

Have fun,
greetings
