Windows 7: Able to install 32bit but not 64bit

So I have a problem now. Not sure what it is. So when I turn my computer on, sometimes, it stops at the bios screen(thinkpad logo appears)? sometimes after that and doesn't show the "Starting Windows". Sometimes, I get slow-motion aero. All of this can solve by rebooting my computer, but its really annoying. Anyone here know what the problem is?

Turns out I cannot install Windows through my USB 3.0 port. I used the 2.0 and it went well. Now, the problem is it take a long time to boot up. It stays at the booting screen. How can I fix that?

Are you running a Clean Boot as shown in tutorial? What AV are you using?

Did you follow the steps for how drivers are handled in Win7 which is different than XP?

If not I'd wipe the HD of all boot code with Diskpart Clean Command before install then get it perfect.

Your PC does not natively support USB 3.0 and need the drivers installed after the OS.

OS: Win 7 64bit. Is it generally not a problem to choose to install a piece of 32bit software outside the win 7 default program folder for 32bit software? Or is 32bit software only supposed to be running flawlessly, if installed in that default 32bit folder? Thanks.
