You can get it done but it takes a bit of work.
First you need to make a live USB of your wanted Ubuntu 64bit version (Xubuntu would be best) but it must have persistence.
The easiest way to make this is to use the startup disk creator on an Ubuntu 14.04 Live USB.
Once you have your USB with persistence you need to add this file to the /EFI/BOOT directory of the flash drive.
- Plug your USB drive into the device
- Start up the device
- Go into the BIOS of the device and disable secure boot, save and exit
- Boot off the USB drive
It should boot into the expected Live USB environment.
Once done, plug in a internet connection (I use my android phone with USB tethering).
Then install the distro onto the device making sure to select the options to install third party software and download updates.
As you have an internet connection while installing it will automatically install 32bit EFI grub for you.
After it is all installed you should be able to boot directly onto the device but you may need to do additional work to get wifi, bluetooth, and sound working.
