Which iso is for the 64bit i5 Intel cpu?
I see only the 32bit iso386 and AMD 64bit.

"AMD64" is a misnomer, it's the 64-bit distro.

As per your question in the other thread..

The AMD version is compatible with Intel also. AMD were the originators of 64 bit, so the name stuck. That's a really simplistic way of putting it, but the point is amd64 is compatible with both Intel and AMD processors.
