Hello,

Is it possible install a 64-bit OS (like Pi64) on a RPi2?

It might be possible on the new Pi2 which uses the same ARMv8 soc as the Pi3.

If you have RPi 2B version 1.2 BCM2837 SoC, try:

Post the results from the following commands

cat /sys/firmware/devicetree/base/model
and
cat /proc/cpuinfo

Debian has a arm64 installer image but I have not used it yet. I am working on creating a 64bit release of Debian through debootstrap similar to pi64 but hopefully with a better build script. The kernel gets stuck halfway through boot right but I'm making progress

The RPi 2 is 32-bit, so I don't see why you would want to
run a 64-bit OS on it... But If I knew an OS like that, I
would tell you. I think the RPi 3 is still running a 32-bit
OS! :lol:

There are 2 versions of the RPi 2B, the initial release was ARMv7 BCM2836, whilst version 1.2 is ARMv8 BCM2837.

Raspbian Operating System is a re-spin of ARM32 Debian ARMHF which functions on all RPis, ARMv6 / ARMv7 / ARMv8 CPU Architecture.

There are many scenarios where running a 64bit Operating System is advantageous, and searching this Forum would find many Posts.


FYI the OP has an ARMv7 RPi 2B ;)

I didn't know that. I looked it up but only saw
the 32-bit part.
