Booting Live iso Fails - 64 Bit error?

I just heard about Clear Linux today and want to give it a try. I’ve installed countless flavors of Linux on my machine (an AMD Phenom X6) without any problem. However, just after booting begins I get the kernel message “FAIL: 64 bit CPU” and then “Unable to boot Clear Linux.” And then, “FAIL: FATAL: Detected required missing CPU feature: 64-bit CPU (lm)”

I have no idea what’s going on here. Obviously it’s a 64 bit CPU. Why does it fail to boot for an erroneous error?


The CPU does not support the full 64bit feature set needed to run ClearLinux. This is not an extraneous error - your CPU is likely not supported (it’s from 2010, most of the supported CPU’s are 2011 and newer).
