He told me last time he installed it using same CD and it was 32bit...but at that time he had only 1 hard drive and he cleaned installed Windows 7...and I am pretty sure it was 32bit because I remember downloading nVidia 32bit drivers. I never downloaded anything related to 64bit.

Could it be that Vista 32 bit is already present on another drive, thats why you cannot have Windows 7 32bit on this drive?

Like I said before...it isn't a mishap, the disc he gave to you to use is x64...

Can I inquire where he got the disc from?

A Windows 7 disc will either be x86 or x64...you can have Vista x86 and 7 x86 in different patitions...no issue whatsoever

Also one more question.

If I am logged onto Windows Vista, Can I install Windows 7 on another drive through Windows? Or do i have to boot it?

Is there any disadvantage in installing through Windows?

Indeed you can...when you run setup in Windows, just choose the other partition as the install target
