    I previously burned two DVD's of Windows 7 Ultimate: one of them was 32-bit and one of them was 64-bit.

    I found one of them (don't know what happened to the other one), but I am unsure if the one I found is 32-bit or 64-bit.

    How do I find out?

    I bet there is some pro way to do this, but how about inserting the DVD into a computer you know for sure runs a 32-bit version of Windows? If setup.exe launches successfully, the DVD is x86, if it doesn't launch, it's x64.

    ;)

    The x64 should be about 2.9Gb. The other is smaller (2.4)

    Thanks guys! The DVD turned out to be 2.32 GB, so it's probably the 32-bit version.

    Just look in Sources folder if it has install_Windows 7 STARTER.clg it is x86, x64 does not contain starter edition.
