I read somewhere that it was possible to get around the 32 bit bios issue and install a 64bit linux distro. Is this possible? And if so, how would I install it? Just the ordinary route with a bootable image?

You will need to do a google search. They only posted a theory. So don't know if it works or not.

From what I've seen, some people have been able to although they didnt give a guide. This link suggests its possible although it was done with a 1010. Seems you just have to copy over a custom efi file if the distro doesn't support the installation.

Doh, should have read better. Thought you said Windows 10 64Bit. Yes it possible with linux, just not Windows.

Just wish we could do same with Windows. Wanted to setup linux unbunto bash on windows. Awesome new feature, means I can work on source code without switching machines.

I wish that as well, although I hardly use windows anymore.
