Windows 7: saved image back up

I deleted some of my posts. I thought new drive was smaller, didn't read it well. Steps you have to do:
  1. #4 and test if it can boot from usb flash drive. If so, shutdown and power off.
  2. Disconnect 32bits drive form system (just to be sure)
  3. Boot from usb flash and do the System Image Recovery
  4. Now boot normally. Post results.
I think step 1 to 3 aren't needed at all. Maybe Advanced Boot Options "repair you recomputer"-> System Image Recovery works as well. Be sure to restore to new disk!

So i have made the usb bootable and copied the iso to the usb and successfully installed the 64bit onto the other drive.
I cannot get the windows back up image from the previous drive 64bit that is saved on an external drive
to install,so i may just leave the clean 64 bit install as it is and have to like and lump it.
I am at least back to my previous set up : i can boot to either 32 bit or 64 bit windows at start but have 64 bit as the default.

You shouldn't do install... but do "windows image recovery" instead.
