Interesting - I wonder if the torrent ISO is a bit dodgy. I checked the MSDN download library and found Windows 7 Ultimate as separte ISO files, one for x86 and one for x64 (no dual ISO); latest release date was May 12, 2011.
DISCLAIMER: I haven't tried to use the x64 disk to install the x86 version of Ultimate.
As noted in other replies, you can not "upgrade" from Ultimate x86 to x64.
