Windows 7: Create a custom installation

Create a custom installation

I've been trying to figure out a way to create a custom installation source for Windows 7 or Vista.

What I want to do is make the installation use 2 install.wim files, not 1 as default...or ..to be more specific, I want to have an option in the setup, asking for W7 64bit and W7 32bit...I saw that WAIK (Windows Automated Installation Kit) serves such purposes, but I have failed to figure out how, I 've come across some walkthroughs but they don't cover the matter adequately.

Actually, what I want to do most is create a bootable installation media tha gives me both options for 64bit and 32bit installations. But I haven't managed that so far...I've seen several bootable cdroms around that manage to load 2-3 OSes, but I don't see how I can do this with W7 and bcdedit...

Any suggestions anyone?

I've tried and come very close..Why would you not advise it? It's really handy for an IT administrator to have muliple installations to boot with in one media.
