ISO is a disc image that is composed of archive files with a large amount of data content. By making ISO images, you can put all your data into one file. The extension file ".ISO" is commonly used for these types of images. It is created using an optical disc drive and disc imaging software, like Magic ISO, Ultra ISO, Power ISO and Nero Burning - which also have tools to make ISO image.

The difference between 32 bit and 64 bit operating system: 32 bit can only handle up to 2 gigabytes of RAM, while 64 bit can use more than 4 gigabytes of RAM. In making this 32 or 64 bit ISO, it depends on what you already have. The only thing we can do is convert it into disc images.
