Windows 7 SP Standalone

Would like to download this to save but Microsoft have made it very complicated by having 10 links to choose from:

Download Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (KB976932) from Official Microsoft Download Center

Am I right in thinking that all I will need is the 'windows6.1-KB976932-X64.exe' as I am runing Windows 7 Home 64 bit? I am not sure what 'windows6.1-KB976932-IA64.exe' is? Thanks

You are correct. You would use the 'windows6.1-KB976932-X64.exe' download. The IA64 refers to an old Itanium processor manufactured by Intel.
