Dual Boot Win 8.1 and Win 8

I have a dual partition drive that had Win 7 installed. Installed Win 8 32 Bit as main OS when released, all worked fine with Win 8 booting as C: and splash screen offering option to boot to Win 7 if needed.

Win 8.1 released so did a clean install over the Win 7 partition as 64 Bit Win 8.1 but have lost the option to boot to the now D: drive where the Win 8 32 Bit system is. This would be useful as I have some 32 bit applications on that drive which I need to access.

Is there any way to restore, or give, the option to boot to either C; or D; drives?

Thanks

you may use EasyBCD to make changes into the boot loader.

and yes you can boot machine with 32 and 64 bit OS there is no issue. See below discussion:
