Windows 7: How to create System Repair Disc for 64 bit

How to create System Repair Disc for 64 bit

When I try to Restore System image from backup I've got this error:
"The selected system image cannot be restored in this recovery environment"
Browsing this Forum I noticed that folks found that this message could be when one created 32 bit Repair disc and tries to Restore 64 bit OS.
In my case I created a disc on Windows 7 Enterprise PC. I am trying to Restore Windows 7 64 bit machine.
My question: when user creates a Repair disc does he has the option to specify 32 vs. 64 bit?
I simply thought that since I'm on 64 bit system it'll create 64 bit Repair disc ... but maybe I'm wrong and I created 32 bit Disc...
Could someone please highlight it?

I found the problem in my case:
I created Repair disc on Windows 7 32 bit but started to Restore image on Windows 7 64 bit.
After I created another Repair disc on PC running 64 bit I did not have an issue to Restore my image.
