How to repartition drive to install Windows 7 32-bit on a 64-bit system

  1. I just bought a gateway computer that has windows 7 home premium 64 bit on it. I need windows 7 professional 32 bit for my work and I understand that you can repartition your system to download the 32 bit on it. I already have the program both 64 bit and 32 bit professional.

    Could someone help me with step by step instructions?

    Thanks.

    Thank you so much. It looks to be very similar to what I'm looking for. I will check it out. Do you know if the 32 bit will work on the 64 bit when partitioned? My grandson has a laptop that has all three installed on it - 32 bit, 64 bit and 86 bit. So, I am assuming so.

    Thanks
