Dual booting Windows 7 32bit + Windows 2008 R2 64bit

Feb 21, 2015

I have a i5 laptop, 4GB ram with Windows 7 Enterprise 32 bit running on a single partition, which takes up the entire 240Gb HDD.

I would like to keep this OS, and install a second OS - W2K8R2-64 bit. (I want the W2K8R2 OS to be a nice stable area for running DJ software)

Would the best way to achieve this be to shrink the current partition, and literally just put in the W2K8R2 disc, and install it on the newly created partition? Or, am I going to run into problems? Will W2K8R2 cause problems to my current Windows 7 install?

Many thanks for any help.
