    I purchased Windows 7 professional and downloaded two ISO files:
    en_windows_7_professional_with_sp1_x64_dvd_u_676939.iso
    en_windows_7_professional_with_sp1_x86_dvd_u_677056.iso​
    I copied the first ISO file to a USB stick and then successfully installed Windows 7 from the USB stick.
    I never used the second ISO file. What is the second ISO file for?

    Thank you.

    The top one is 64 bit x64 and the lower one is 32 bit x86.
