How to install x32 WDM drivers on x64 Win 7?

Users having several similar devices installed like satellite TV cards may experience driver conflicts. I wanted to install WDM drivers for one card, and BDA drivers for another. Is there a way to install WDM x32 drivers on a x64 Win 7 PC?

Is there then a way to setup several Hardware Profiles to avoid starting both card drivers at the same boot? Or select at Win 7 boot, what hardware to start?
