Upgrade Centos 6 (32 Bits) to Centos 7 (32 Bits)

Hi all ,

I have a very old PC ( Acer2000) 32 Bits. On this machine I am running (Do
not laugh) SCO Unix in an antique version : So Centos6 probes with the
bootloader on this OS and other OS s.

Is there a way to opgrade Centos 6 to Centos 7 in the 32 Bits architecture
?

Any help would be usefull.

Regards.

Ger van Dijck.

I googled it, and it appears an Acer 2000 is a Pentium-M 1.6 Ghz with 512MB
to 2GB max ram. I would stick with whatever is working on it, or put it
out of its misery.

My suggestion would be a significantly newer system that supports
virtualization, and run your SCO and whatever in VMs rather than trying to
multi-boot.

Dude, purchase a new computer. Almost all modern OSes stopped supporting 32bit architectures.
