Created a Windows 7 Ultimate x64 Bootable USB, On a Windows 7 x32

Well I am going to build a gaming pc rig and not buying a dvd optical drive at all just to save some money. So I made a bootable Windows 7 Ultimate x64 USB because my rig has 8gb ram. So continue I made one on a 32 bit and I was wondering if there will be any incompatibilities like it somehow installs a 32 bit on a computer with 8gb of ram or something. So I was wondering if something will happen and if there will be any type of problem of any how, I'm really worried about this because I'm going to be building my pc on August 1st, so yeah please help me out here. :S

Not sure I follow you, but I assume you mean that you have 2 different Windows 7 installation USB drives: one would install 32-bit Windows and the other would install 64-bit Windows.

You can install either. If you install the 32-bit version, Windows will recognize only about 3.2 GB of RAM.

It doesn't matter whether you used a 32-bit or 64-bit machine to make the installation media. What matters is whether the ISO you used is the 32-bit version or the 64-bit version.

How did you create the flash drive? What program did you use, what steps did you follow.

The times I've tried to create a 64 bit install flash drive on a 32 but system it failed, every time.

I used windows 7 usb dvd download tool. And a Windows 7 ISO. How can I tell if it's x64 just by looking in the files.

The ISO I used was a 64 bit version. And I made it on a 32 bit. So it doesn't matter?

If I remember correctly the x64 should be about 3.2gb, the x86 is less.

Do you know if I made it on a 32 bit, but the media is a 64 bit how will it install on a fresh pc rig that I'm building will it install it as a 32 bit because I made it on a 32 bit? Or will the media install at a 64 bit on my new pc im building on the media made on a 32 bit. Make sense? Cuz im not sure lol.
