Install the 64 bit to your new volume 100 gb . You need to be careful to point the instakller at the new volume 100gb.

Also, you can not have more then 4 Primary partitions if you are using a MBR partition style. Be careful of what you do and pay attention to any warning messages.

I recently did just that, with help from 'the boys'. I have seen some parts of my system still say 32bit, others say 64bit. Dont know if it hurts or not, just that it does.

You will see that on a 64 bit install, it`s normal.
