    With both drives connected when you installed x64, you should have access to
    both systems, unless you changed boot order. Go into recovery console on
    the x64 disk and when you get to select system to boot from, there should be
    3 (one should be the CD with no administrator password). Select any one you
    know the password for, at the command prompt use bootcfg /rebuild you
    can do map before to see if both systems are recognized.
