Windows 7 Bootable Image

I am trying to remove the ei.cgf file from the untouched Windows 7. After doing so and making an ISO file, it becomes unbootable. Please let me know step by step how to make it bootable.

I have the following programs: UltraISO 9.33, Ashampoo Burning Studio 9.

Thanks,

Mani

1-extract all the files to a folder of your choice.
2-find ei.cfg, remove
3-use ultraiso to create and iso (make sure you check the bootable/system box not sure what its called in ultraiso)
4-burn dvd from iso at slow speed
done

There is also a tutorial here at sevenforums in the tutorial section.

Feel free to ask if you need help

I don't know how to use the UltraISO because I just got it today. Would it locate the boot file itself?

Or you can just use ImgBurn. It's better, and it's free. For the boot sector, if you open the ISO with 7-zip, you can extract the boot sector file. Select that boot sector file when burning with ImgBurn, and you're good to go.

The boot folder in the Untouched ISO has many files in it. It's all very confusing, is there only one file I need? Is it the "bootfix" file that I require?

Thanks

1. Make sure UltraISO is the default ISO app and double-click on the Win 7 ISO image file, or right-click / Open With and select UltraISO.

2. In UltraISO you'll see the ISO contents in the top half, Win-Explorer-like.

3. Navigate to the ei.cfg and remove it.

4. Do a file save.

5. U-ISO will create a backup image file before changing the original in the same folder.

But if you're using the wzt image you don't need to do this - it ain't there .

Edit: never mind that last, you said you have the (currently) untouched ISO ...

When I clicked on save, I get this screen:

vLite is also a solution...just look at my tutorial and don't do anything besides loading the sources and choosing to make it into an ISO

4. Do a file Save As. You need to save as a new image(ISO)

I've just spent 4 hours trying to solve this problem. Getting to the point of nearly destroying my laptop, all because I didn't click "Save As"? I don't know how to feel, relieved or horrified...

Anyway, thanks a lot masterB. There's just one last thing, I don't understand why UltraISO wouldn't load the .bif file it created so I can create a bootable image...oh well.

Edit: I spoke too soon! VirtualBox still says No bootable medium found! Help...save me...
