Windows 7: Single dual boot drive from two computers?

Single dual boot drive from two computers?

Have two identical computers HP8300's one only has Windows 7 pro 64, the other has a dual boot setup with Windows XP and Windows 7 pro 32. What I would like to end up with is the Win 7 32 bit partition from the first computer dual booted with Win 7 64 on the Windows 7 pro 64 computer.

I would like to get away from having to do a new installation if possible, the 32 bit installation has allot of software and drivers for special cards that would be a bear to have to reinstall.

I have and know how to use the tools to make and copy the partition but guessing there will be more to it than that. So I make room for the 32bit installation on the drive and copy the 32bit partition..
Then what?
