None,too much to read lol,i just want to replace my 32bit OS with 64bit,i don't want to backup any files,i got nothing important on the PC.

In the BIOS i choose to boot from the Flash USB that contains the 64bit OS but i get error.

So, you can't be arsed reading the tutorial because "its too much reading", and then expect me to hold your hand and guess what problems are happening with the installer?

Try burning ISO to DVD, and start again.
