One Time Deployment - I have Windows 7 install media on a USB key. How can I tell if it contains install images for 32 bit?

imagex /info doesn't tell me anything about the architecture, other than this line: <ARCH>9</ARCH>. I can't find a file explaining which it is, nor can I tell what ARCH 9 is :)

Thanks for your help.

Open the autorun.inf file if it is 32bit it will read as follows




If it is 64bit





open=sources\sperr32.exe x64

Thanks, but isn't also possible to have 32 bit images to deploy in the latter case? –  user30404 Mar 7 '10 at 2:11
