Rather than dual-booting, why dont you install Windows 2008 R2 as a guest VM? I'd suggest that you use a virtualization app such as Virtualbox. It supports 64bit guest VMs.

Advantages to the VM design:

  1. This will allow you to run multiple operating systems at the same time
  2. Simple, no complex multi-boot configuration
  3. No drivers to worry about for the guest VMs
  4. When you are done with a guest VM, just delete the VM files.

I just ran into this issue with my hp g7 1310. Installing Windows 7 x64 driver seem to fix it.
