Advanced users can install a different OS. Beginners can't and will
need a single OS image for simple install.
Does anybody know if these instructions are detected at runtime? I'm
also looking into an issue with Mathmatica due to broken OS detection.
It appears that arm64 is currently missing some of the CPU spoofing
that happens on other architectures...
