Dualboot, Windows 7 Home Premium, 32bit, 64bit help

I have Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit installed on my laptop, if i get Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit, can i install that on a partition and dualboot Home Premium 32bit and 64 bit?

There's nothing to stop you dual-booting two different versions of Windows.

As you won't be able to run both operating systems at the same time you'll probably be able to use your COA product key, but if I'm wrong I'm sure someone else will be along shortly.

I do know that if you have the retail version of Windows 7 that ships with both the 32-bit version and the 64-bit version, you can use the same product key to activate either version.

What you can't do is use the same product key on different computers at the same time as you are then breaking the terms of the EULA.
