I want to upgrade to Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit But i Can't!

A few days ago, I accidentally upgraded to Windows 7 32bit. The CPU supports both but i mostly want 64bit OS because of the RAM.

I have downloaded Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit on my USB.
But when i try to boot from the USB, everything seems fine and when i am close to the preparation it needs a device..something..
It does this EVERY TIME!
I want Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit again
Error: Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit Setup needs a driver software..
Please help
The CPU supports both 32 and 64bit

Antivirus: Microsoft Security Essentials
OS (Current): Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit
RAM: Kingston 4GB DDR3 Dual Channel
CPU: ASUS P8B75-M LX

Put the Iso file you downloaded on a dvd, it`s much simpler to install windows with a dvd.

What did you use to put the Iso file on the usb stick ?

Try Rufus.

Rufus - Create bootable USB drives the easy way

But, if you only have 4 GB of memory, there is no reason to install 64 bit, unless you intend to add more memory.

My pc has 8GB of ram.
32bit uses only 4gb ram
that's why i want 64bit

Does 32bit affect my gaming performance?

OK well your specs say 4 GB, if you want 64 bit then install 64 bit.

Look over my earlier reply again

Any more questions, just ask.
