Any help would be appreciated installing 64 bit Lubuntu on an Acer Aspire SW5-012 with 32bit UEFI?
32 bit uefi with a 64 bit atom processor. The good news is you have a 64 bit capable processor, the bad new is you have a 32bit uefi, the pain in the ass bit is you can get it working apparently, but have to jump through hoops to do it. Check kenzer161’s response on this thread and the site they referenced: https://www.reddit.com/r/linuxmasterrace/comments/bltqjh/linux_on_intel_atom_bay_trail_laptops_is_it/
the easy option to get an lxqt desktop would be to install something like mx with 32bit and then install lxqt on it, then remove the desktop it originally installed.
Thank you. I actually found that he had already respun lubuntu 64bit version with 32bit uefi and everything necessary for Intel Atom processors. He also had the software to download to respin nearly any iso that you want.
