You cannot install Windows 7 32-bit on Windows 7 64-bit. You must create a new virtual machine entirely. On a real system, you would have to format the computer and install Windows 7 32-bit fresh.

Don't use m$ Virtual PC to install VM's. It doesn't perform well, isn't supported properly anymore etc. The only use for it is windows XP mode (but even that can easily be converted to VMware Player which is much better).

So get yourself either Oracle's VirtualBox or VMware's player if you want to use VM's under Windows 7. Personally I prefer VirtualBox as it is OpenSource (and it also works with CPU's that don't include Virtual Hardware extensions, which VMware needs).



I use VMware Workstation V11 as the top of class virtualizer. It works great and you can make nearly any machine you wish. I sometimes use VMware Player, but I prefer Workstation.



Virtual PC is old, try a new Hypervisor.

Another comment on VMware Player. The free version is for personal use only, so if you need it in a business, you can't use that. But there is also a VMware Player Pro which can be used in Business environments and isn't free, but costs less than VMware Workstation. In most cases you don't need the more expensive VMware Workstation. Currently VMware seems to offer discounts:
