You must have one of the early Pentium 4 CPUs that don't support the 64 bit instruction set. Your only choice if you really want to run 64 bit windows is to upgrade to a P4 of the "prescott" line.

Install Win7 - 32bit.
The install divd may have come with both versions. If your didnt you can still use a 32bit install disk with your 64bit key. The key is valid for either install.
