Hi
The two causes for this could be that either the usb/dvd is not bootable or you first have to select the usb device from f12 boot menu.
See this guide on creating bootable disk

Or you could use softwares like microsoft windows to usb/dvd tool or novicorp wintoflash

Hi
Go to bios and then disable UEFI and SecureBoot in the boot tab.

Hi charan
Welcome to the forums
I am sorry to say but you cannot change to 32 bit from 64 bit. You will have to clean install windows 7 32 bit once again.
