comment What version was installed? x64 or i686? What's the difference exactly?
This is weird - I checked the image that I downloaded from the official download page. I definetly checked "64 bit" back then and ended up with a file named: ubuntu-12.04-server-amd64.iso. I extracted the image and found all packages named i386

Thank you for the clarification, though I know the difference and was wondering what the exact difference was regarding the kernel.

Apparently, the installer does not show which version it is about to install, is there a way to check it?

yes might be, but the "real" question I have is, why didnt the installer install x64? How can I make sure that it really installs a x64 kernel?
