  6. Using Multiple Task Sequences via PXE:
    1. There are no reason to use both x86 and x64 boot images for your DEPLOYMENT task sequence. Just use x86 for everything. You only need the x64 boot image to BUILD a new image.
    2. If you advertise tasksequenses with different Boot images assigned, to the same collection, the machine will PXE boot the boot image belonging to the TS you advertised last. This means that the machine will have to download the boot image to disk and reboot, if the one you booted from is not the one assigned to the TS you choose.
