Windows 7: Choosing Windows 7 Version?

Choosing Windows 7 Version?

OK I now have the final RTM. I used Magic ISO to remove the file ei.cfg which I was told would allow you to choose which version of Windows 7 to install in setup.

But when running setup I now get the error:

"Windows could not collect information for [OSImage] since the specified image file [install.wim] does not exist."

Can you not do this with the version or am I doing something wrong?

It seems that you might have had a bad burn...it can;t find install.wim (which contains the OS)...try reburning it to see what happens

OK Fixed it.

I scrapped Magic ISO and used UltraISO and it worked first time
