This will display several operating systems to choose from for your Server and the list is displayed by the Operating System name. Some Operating Systems have several versions to choose from giving you many different options to choose from that fit many different needs.

If you uploaded your own ISO, this will display as the last option under Private. From there you can select the description you named your ISO when you uploaded it while creating your new Server.
