No, you cannot install SharePoint 2010 in 32-bit system.
It is mandatory to have a 64-bit hardware and operating system to setup SharePoint 2010.
Please refer the Hardware and Software details here:

Thats interesting link. They have mentioned this note on the TopSharePoint website:
Keep in mind that hardware virtualization needs to be enabled on your computer, so the CPU has to support virtualization.
One has to see if your hardware supports this by going to BIOS settings.
As a precaution, this option is not supported by Microsoft.
