The firmware update method is not supported on sx60, you need to make the card bootable.

If your card is larger than 32 GB, it's probably formatted exFAT and needs to be reformatted FAT32 to be bootable. Windows makes formatting larger cards complicated, so it may be simplest to use a 32GB (or smaller) card.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

For us to be able to help, you'll need to describe more specifically which settings you set and what happened.
