you do realise that you will be voiding the warranty
That doesn't void the warranty. But of course, if you don't yet have recovery media, make sure you create them so you can restore the system to factory defaults should the need arise, before doing any changes to the system.
This is kind of quick, but you can pause where needed, and I suggest muting the sound...

Just follow the clicks. I have found better videos about this before, but couldn't right now.

While you are in the BIOS you might as well set your boot order to boot from CD/DVD first.

Aside from that, I was wondering why the Windows 7 32 bit downgrade? Unless you HAVE to to use particular software or for work I wouldn't.  Windows 8 is pretty good if you give yourself a few hours with it. On a new laptop it would go like the wind.  My 2 cents.
Thanks
