32 bit to 64 bit upgrade issue

Alright so I'm in the process of upgrading from the 32 bit version of Windows 7 to the 64 bit version of Windows 7. When the process restarted my computer, it simply started with the USB 3.0 Onboard Acceleration and is staying on that screen. What do I do now?

Move the Win7 installer to a USB 2.0 port, as the dated SP1 doesn't have USB 3 drivers in it so they'll need to be delivered via Windows Update along with other drivers once installed, after you enable Automatically deliver drivers via Windows Update (Step 3).
