It sounds like you chose to type "expert" to boot the installer in
expert mode for i386. However, to boot the installer in expert mode for
amd64, you have to type "expert-amd64". Processor autodetection between
i386 and amd64 is only supported by the multi-arch CD if you simply press
Enter to boot. Once you start entering boot parameters, you bypass that
autodetection. This is explained in the syslinux help screens.
