    Can someone tell me step by step to install win7 32 bit to my current win 7 64 bit, so I can run 32 bit old programs when I need.
    1. I have created a new partition called 32 bit d:
    2. Use boot sequence to boot from CD with 32 bit version, but would not let me install to the d: drive, said it is dynamic(?).
    3. So help me

    Hello kpmmarina and Welcome to TSG!

    You do not need to dual boot Win 7 64 and 32 bit. 32 bit programs will run just fine on your 64 bit OS. When you install 32 bit programs they go into the C:\Program Files (x86) folder and run via WOW64, the x86 emulator that lets 32-bit applications run on 64-bit Win 7.
