    Yes, should be no issue with it
    Or virtualise the 32-bit OS

      Ok good,

      So installing win 7 OS 32 bit first and after that installing win 7 OS 64 bit will work properly.

      Regarding the virtualization, i have encountered an issue one time. i tried to virtualize a 64 bit OS using a machine running 32 OS . and when i start the installtion using the virtual machine software it said somthing like canot install 64 bit from host running 32 bit. any advice about this?

      Regards,

        You cannot run 64bit inside 32bit, but you can the other way around
