i have a hard drive that windows 7 crashed and I can't recall if I had 32-bit or 64-bit version of windows 7. Is there a way for me to tell when I have the drive mounted as slave?

check folder structure on that drive
If you have just one Program files it´s 32-bit
if you have two Program files (Program files and Program files (x86)) then you have 64-bit
