1) can't be done as BES can not run on 64 bit version of os
Whatis your option. Migrate all users to 2007. Uninstall Excahnge 2003 and leave BES running on it or do knife edge cutover to a new hardware for BES.

You are correct. BlackBerry Enterprise Server software version 4.1 Service Pack 4 (4.1.4) and later is designed to run on a 64-bit operating system. In order to run Microsoft Exchange 2007 and the BlackBerry Enterprise Server on the same computer, BlackBerry Enterprise Server software version 4.1.4 or later must be installed.
But would never do it anyway. If any server I would never install anything else on it , it would be Exchange. How many BES users do you have?

Actually installing BES directly on Exchange 2007 can be a really bad idea! If you install it on a server that is providing Client Access Role, then you're OWA will stop working.
Take a look at this link: http://www.blackberry.com/btsc/microsites/search.d
By the way, you can use a temporary license key for the new BES, and after the migration switch to the product license.
