I want to deploy a windows 2008 32 bit image but I want to know that what is different between 32bit and 64 bit when I want to build the 32bit image.

There is no difference beacause IF YOU DEPLOY A 32 bit image YOU CAN NOT BUILD A 64 bit image. That simple.

That said, deploying 32 bit images these days is negligent. Go 64 bit - 64 bit operating systems can see all your memory (32 bit is limited to MAXIMUM 4 GB, most likely about 3.5), and 64 bit can run 32 bit programs.

Deployment is the same whether the image is 64 bit or 32 bit. You can deploy the images from the same deployment server.
