Hi Schus - Welcome to w7forums

Will I have to reformat my disc and reinstall windows 7 32 bit.
Yes, A clean install is required when changing bit versions. It is possible to install without formating but not advisable. Doing so will move the existing operating system to a Windows.old folder before performing the clean install.

Also will my same activision key work as long as I only use one version?
Yes, the key will work with both versions.
