I was wanting to have a dual boot with 32bit AND 64bit.
Welcome to Seven Forums.
Is it the full version or an upgrade?
Any particular reason you want to install 32bit and 64bit?
Check this thread below.
"Windows 7 32-bit and 64-bit in one
While the retail package of Windows 7 will come with both the 32-bit and 64-bit version of Windows 7 to install, you will only have one product key. This key can only be used to activate one of these installed versions and not both installed at the same time. You will need to purchase another product key number, or get the Family Pack Windows 7 to be able to.
Hope this helps,
One key per installation.

Agreed, shouldn't have any problems with 32bit programs running in Windows 7 64bit.
I'd just go with the 64bit. I did and have never looked back.
