    Hi guys!

    I've successfully used ImageX to export the Vista x64 install.wim file to the x86 install.wim file. However, I realized that both DVDs have slightly different content in their "sources" folder.

    The x86 DVD has a "6.0.6000.16386_x86" folder whilte the x64 DVD has the "6.0.6000.16386_amd64" folder and they have different folder sizes.

    My question is, since I'm creating a DVD of both x86 and x64, should I include the "6.0.6000.16386_amd64" folder into my DVD? I've googled about this before and some say that exporting the install.wim file is enough, but I'm jsut worried in case the 64bit installation doesn't go well if I ignore that "6.0.6000.16386_amd64" folder..

    Thanks!

    Just export them to a new install.wim and replace the old one, create new iso and you're done.

    So I really do not need to care about the other files/folders eventhough both x86 and x64 have different files in the "sources" folder?
