How can I say whether my 64-bit OS is IA-64 or x86 instruction set?

Hi All,

I have a computer which has 64 bit processor. How can I know whether it's x86-64 OR IA-64?

What processor do you have? Intel or AMD?  Model?

If you have a Windows OS on it, try running:
"wmic cpu list full" in the command prompt, otherwise I think your BIOS messages in POST will show...

Intel XEON(R). And if I google it, it would tell me, but I want to know a way where IF I do not ahave internet connection then system can tell me the kind of instruction set it is using.

What Kind of Coding Program is Right for You?

There are many ways to learn to code these days. From coding bootcamps like Flatiron School to online courses to totally free beginner resources. The best way to learn to code depends on many factors, but the most important one is you. See what course is best for you.

IA-64 is reserved for the Itanium-based processors.  64-bit Xeon processors would fall under the x86-64

Oh yes, exactly. You are right but my question is is there any place in BIOS or control panel where my system tells me explicitly that this is x86-64 bit system?

No, unfortunately they don't store that data on the chipset.  You can only tell by the model.
