Description

The install media can support both 64 and 32 bit boot by using boot archive as ramdisk image. However, to save the memory, the ramdisk is only having either 32- or 64-bit kernel files. To avoid error message about missing unix, we should try both variants here and only complain if neither is found. Since the 64-bit systems are more common, we would start from amd64.
