How do I try out Trinity on an old 32 bit PC?

Have an old Toshiba Satellite A135-S4447 32 bit Intel Core Duo T2250 processor, 1024mb SDRAM  I'd like to try Q40S on. It appears there is not a "live" 32 bit Q40S program available to "try" Q40S out. I've searched the forum and haven't found a solution perhaps because of my search terms?
Suggestions on how to try Q40S out would be appreciated.
Thanks

You can first try to use the 64-bit Trinity Live system. I think that should work as well.

or replace the original SATA hard drive with an SATA SSD drive and install the 32-bit Trinity system. You can always go back when you reinstall your original hard drive.

No, OP is correct.  A Core Duo (not Core2 Duo) T2250 is a 32-bit processor.  It's incapable of 64-bit instructions.


Q4OS Trinity machine -Dere v14s.  Intel Celeron N5095, 16GB LPDDR4, 512 GB SSD, Intel Jasper Lake GT1, Garbagetek 8822CE Wifi 5 + BT 5.0

thank you for the correction. You know, since I always have a Q4OS live stick with me, I just try that out. But you are right.
