1. Install an amd64 distribution on a USB pen drive.
2. Install the pen drive to a Xeon server.
3. Boot from the pen drive.
4. Run sysinstall, and install (standard installation) the OS to the local HDD, using one of FreeBSD FTPs.
5. Remove the pen drive and boot from the HDD with newly installed system.
6. Observe the uname -a.

Actual result: the architecture is i386.
Expected result: the architecture should be amd64.
