I have installed a new version of Bitnami Wordpress stack version 3.6, before I uninstall the previous version, all I did for the backup was copy the whole bitnami folder, when I restore it the web just wouldn't load. Have I done something wrong in the backup process? I am a beginner, I'd be appreciate if anyone can help me, thanks.

How and what exactly did you restore in the new installation?
Also note that you have to import the old database data. http://wiki.bitnami.com/Native_Installers_Quick_Start_Guide#How_to_upgrade_the_full_Stack_migrating_the_data.3f

The way I restore the data was by copying all of the old file into the folder of the new version of Bitnami wordpress.
I am also confuse by the backup instruction given by wordpress, I don't know where to put these kinds of command
$ cd installdir
$ serviceinstall.bat REMOVE
Iif it needs to be put in bitnami console I can't find it also, I am using windows
Thanks for your help

Yes you should run these commands from the BitNami WordPress command prompt that you can find it in Start -> Programs -> BitNami WordPress Stack -> Use WordPress

I still don't get how can I create a full backup?
I follow this article http://wiki.bitnami.com/Native_Installers_Quick_Start_Guide#How_can_I_create_a_full_backup_of_a_Stack.3f and it is still confusing for me, bitnami should make a youtube video on how create a full backup and restore it, sorry for being so dumb at this backup thing.

Sorry but it is not possible for me. The command line refers to your installation directory. Type the following in the "User WordPress Stack" console:
