Parted Magic Distro Drops 32-Bit Support, Now Powered by Linux 5.8 and OverlayFS

It’s been three months since the last Parted Magic update and the new version (2020_08_23) is here with some major changes. First and foremost, this is the first release of the disk partitioning distribution that no longer offers support for 32-bit computers. The 32-bit kernel has been removed due to an initramfs size limitation in syslinux. Moreover, both 32 and 64 entries were removed from the boot menu as only 64-bit is now supported. The developer was planning to remove 32-bit support in a future release.
