Clean Installation Of windows 8 (x64) over Windows 7 (x86) but i can't use either USB or DVD to boot OS :/

The Title Pretty Much Explains Everything :/
My notebook is running windows 7 32 bit (x86) but i am trying to Clean install Windows 8 64 bit (x64) over, It sounds Easy but the MAIN problem is i can't update my BIOS and it's an OLD version so i can't boot up any OS from a CD/DVD or A USB Drive :( i can only use Notebook Hard Drive and MultiBay. It's So annoying I've tried EVERYTHING but failed to install Windows 8 upon my Notebook. It's a big problem Guys?? Any way i can install it? Please i need HELP. :??:

  7. open your laptop up and remove the cmos battery from your motherboard (do it only if you know how to) or else
