Asking advice for pluging-in a 2nd hard disk

I'm sorry if this is not the correct thread to ask this kind of question..
Okay, so i got 2 PCs and the older one has just got some error (Unexpected I/O error 0xc00000e9) and after browsing several times, i think its the hard disk that got some errors. I tried to move the hard disk from the old pc to the newer one, thank god it was working. What i want to ask are :
1. The old pc's os is 32-bit and the newer one is 64. Is it okay? Because, it means now i have 2 system disk. The 32 and 64 bit. [I plan to fix the old one, so i dont want to erase the 32-bit system disk]
2. Do i need a bigger psu?
3. What causing the error in my old pc? (i'm sorry for my bad english, i'm asian)

Because, it means now i have 2 system disk. The 32 and 64 bit. [I plan to fix the old one, so i dont want to erase the 32-bit system disk]
2. Do i need a bigger psu? Probably not, HDDs use very little power.
3. What causing the error in my old pc? (i'm sorry for my bad english, i'm asian) Run a HDD test program.


Hard drive(s):
Pick one for your HDD brand or use Seatools.
