i have a Question

I have made this one time before but now i cant get it to work i dont know why.

I have a X64 with all version of windows 7 and X86 with all version of windows. and i have download all updates and put them into the install.wim of both of them

Then i would like to export all x64 images to x86 and that is also no problem but when i try to install windows

I can install x86 with out any problems but when i try to install x64

it unpacks and start and when it comesto the last punkt of te first install screen, it says you hardware dont support this version. but when it just install windows 7 x64 from a DVD with ONLY x64 version there is no problems.

imagex.exe /EXPORT C:\Test7\DVDx64\sources\install.wim" 1 %WORKLW%\HOMEBASICx64.wim "Windows 7 HOMEBASIC x64"
imagex.exe /EXPORT C:\Test7\DVDx64\sources\install.wim" 2 %WORKLW%\HOMEPREMIUMx64.wim "Windows 7 HOMEPREMIUM x64"
imagex.exe /EXPORT C:\Test7\DVDx64\sources\install.wim" 3 %WORKLW%\PROFESSIONAlx64.wim "Windows 7 PROFESSIONAl x64"
imagex.exe /EXPORT C:\Test7\DVDx64\sources\install.wim" 4 %WORKLW%\ULTIMATEx64.wim "Windows 7 ULTIMATE x64"

IMAGEX /EXPORT c:\HOMEBASICx64.wim 1 C:\Test7\DVD\sources\install.wim "Windows 7 HOMEBASIC x64"
IMAGEX /EXPORT c:\HOMEPREMIUMx64.wim 1 C:\Test7\DVD\sources\install.wim "Windows 7 HOMEPREMIUM x64"
IMAGEX /EXPORT c:\PROFESSIONAlx64.wim 1 C:\Test7\DVD\sources\install.wim "Windows 7 PROFESSIONAl x64"
IMAGEX /EXPORT c:\ULTIMATEx64.wim 1 C:\Test7\DVD\sources\install.wim "Windows 7 ULTIMATE x64"

IMAGEX /EXPORT /COMPRESS MAXIMUM C:\test7\DVD\sources\install.wim * c:\install.wim "*"

Then i just copy all folders from DVD x86 to the USB stick.
