    MDT 2010 to deploy x86 and x64 OS

    So im running into an issue.

    If i have litetouch windows px x64 boot image mounted, everythign works fine. I can boot into MDT via Lan and install Windows 7 + all my software.

    We are trying to deploy Thin PC x86 via MDT now, and if i mount the x86 lite touch image, i am able to boot into the x86 version of MDT, but if there a way to select which one?

    I have a few techs who use the imaging server and they dont need to boot into the x86 ever. How can i make it an option?

    You need to add two boot images to WDS - an x86 and x64.

    You can import x64 Wims/ISOs into x86, you'll be able to select either x86 or x64, but x64 will ONLY display x64 task sequences.
