Have you checked to see if it's installed alright in the device manager? What about in the disk management screen? You probably just have to format it to NTFS and give it a drive letter.

You can't upgrade from a 32 bit system to a 64 bit, you need to set up a separate partition or hard drive and boot from the windows 7 dvd and install to the new partition or hard drive.
