Dual boot win 8 64bit and 32bit

i need to dual boot windows 8 32 bit and 64 bit. i have 2 disks that would individually boot, but when the 64 bit disk is paired with the 32 bit disk, the winboot manager destroys the 32 bit boot, and i can't seem to get it back, even if it's the only disk in the system. ok what's up and what works thanks

    It should be possible to dual boot Windows 8 32-bit and 64-bit, but they would have to be on seperate partitions and you would also need two seperate product keys or licenses.

    did it without 2 licences, but you have to boot both disks from scratch and make sure you boot to the installing partition

    That is possible except it is like running the same copy of Windows on 2 machines
