No, the 32bit version needs to be installed. Boot the Vista DVD, it checks
that there is a qualifying OS installed, and then proceeds with the clean
install. You can do the partitioning and formatting by the tools available
on the DVD during the process of the install. The old installation is
wrapped up into the windows.old folder from which you can retrieve data if
you want, then delete it.
The BIOS doesn't have anything to do with the installation in terms of
formatting and partitioning.
