Q. Do I have to use the 64-bit version of Windows Preinstallation Environment (WinPE) to capture or deploy a 64-bit version of Windows, and the 32-bit version of WinPE to work with 32-bit versions?

A. No. The 32-bit version of WinPE and the 32-bit ImageX utility are cross-architecture and allow the capture and deployment of both 32-bit and 64-bit images. The 64-bit WinPE and ImageX can only be used on 64-bit installations, however.
