What happens when you select the USB in the boot menu? It just goes straight to Windows?
Windows 7 installation

That's the point: It doesn't show up in the boot menu, but it shows up in BIOS indeed, but when I select it as the primary booting device and restart, it goes straight to Windows.

I don't know what that is, can you tell me how do I find out if I have one?
EDIT: I just found how to, no, I do not have an UEFI BIOS.

You might need to update your BIOS to the latest version and see if it fixes your issue. Do you know your exact computer brand and model?

No, I actually don't know the brand and model, but I know info about all the pieces in it.
EDIT: Should I need to mention that the USB was recognized at a 32-bit install?
EDIT 2: I made a report with AIDA64, it's right here.

Is it me or your computer only have 3GB of RAM? If it does, I suggest you to stay on Windows 7 32-bits and not update to Windows 7 64-bits since it would just take all your resources and it would be slower than your current installation.

Ok. if you say so...
But I heard that the 64-bit version is way better than the 32-bit one, and that's why I wanted the 64-bit version.
EDIT: I just found that I have a 512 MB RAM stick somewhere in the house.
So would it work if I have 3.5 GB of RAM or do I need to buy another 1GB stick?

Ok, so I'll guess I'll just stay with what I have.
Again, thanks for all the help!
