I ran the following test on a machine (in SQL Server 2012):

SELECT @@Version

Microsoft SQL Server 2012 (SP1) - 11.0.3128.0 (Intel X86)
      Dec 28 2012 19:06:41
      Copyright (c) Microsoft Corporation
      Enterprise Edition on Windows NT 6.1 <X64> (Build 7601: Service Pack 1) (WOW64)


I see that the operating system is x64 but SP1 is x86.

Question 1: Does this mean wrong SP1 x86 was wrong installation?
Question 2: Because I need to have SP3, Could I just install SP3 x64 or I have to uninstall SP1 x86 first?

Thank you.
