Installing a clean Windows 7 64 bit

I have a sorta working windows 7 32 bit version installed currently. It created a 2nd partion (p when I first installed it. Would you assist me with short and simple instructions on how to create a clean install of the 64 bit version that will allow me to dual boot untill I get the 64 bit version all setup and running? If it works out ok I would like to remove all traces of the corrupt 32 bit version once I get the 64 bit working and all setup. I have all my data backed up and plenty of room on my main hard drive.

Thank You Very Much!

Hello Rockit,

Could you post a screenshot of your Disk Management (diskmgmt.msc) window showing all of your HDD's layout? This will better help us with letting you know how to delete the 32-bit Windows 7 and still be able to boot with the 64-bit one afterwards.

My computer took a power outage so I have it apart for cleaning and repair. I will put the screenshot up hopefully soon.
