You can select from three choices:

1) Pick an O/S where your choice of hardware is supported.
2) Pick hardware that is supported by your choice of O/S.
3) 'Port' your O/S of choice to your choice of hardware yourself, or
   if you lack the skills to do it yourself, pay someone to do it for

The choice between 1 vs 2  depends on which is 'more important', the 
hardware, or the software.  3 describes what is necessary if you are
not willing to compromise on -either- hardware or software.  Being
'unable'/'unwilling' to compromise is expensive.   Your choice.
