Yes, you can setup a dual boot config with 32-bit Win 7 in one partition and 64-bit in the other. You can't upgrade from 32-bit to 64-bit, you can only do a clean (custom) install.

That being said, 2 licenses would be required for the dual boot config (I believe) and I don't really see the point. 64-bit Win 7 supports 32-bit apps just fine. I suggest you go with the 64-bit version only and minimize your headaches.

Good luck!

You have to boot directly from the DVD. You can't boot into Windows 32-bit and then insert the 64-bit DVD (thus the error message). Understand now?

I'd like to emphasize CUSTOM install. It is the only way to do a clean install.
