Windows 7: Windows 7 Automatic installation kit question

Windows 7 Automatic installation kit question

Hello all,
I have been trying to create an answer file for installing Windows 7 Ultimate. It installs, but for some reason, Windows 7 Starter is installed, and not Ultimate.
I have copied the install.wim and created the catalog file and selected Windows 7 Ultimate but as i said, Windows 7 starter is installed.
Just for fun I tried selecting another edition, but with the same result.
Any thoughts?
Many thanks for any help!

From Automated Installation to Upgrade to Windows 7: Step-by-Step Guide

To create a task sequence for Windows 7
In the console tree, right-click Task Sequences, and click New Task Sequence to start the New Task Sequence Wizard. Task Sequences is in Deployment Shares under the deployment share you created earlier.

On the General Settings page, shown in Figure 6, type a unique ID and a name for the task sequence, and then click Next. The ID should be short and end with an index number. MDT 2010 uses the ID to identify the task sequence. The name should be descriptive, reflecting what the task sequence installs. For example, a good ID for a task sequence that installs Windows 7 is simply WIN7-01, and a good name for this task sequence is Windows 7 Professional. Optionally, type a description in the Task sequence comments box, which can provide more details about the task sequence and what it does.

On the Select Template page, click Next to use the Standard Client Task Sequence template. This is a predefined template that is already configured to properly install Windows 7.

On the Select OS page, click the operating system edition that you want to install by using the task sequence, and click Next. Windows 7 media usually contains multiple editions in each image file. Choose the edition that you purchased and that matches your product key. In most cases, you’ll choose either Windows 7 Professional or Windows 7 Enterprise.

I got the AIK from Microsoft.com website, I suppose it's what you are asking for.
When I said that I selected another edition, I meant that when you open the install.wim file from within the program, you can specify what edition you are going to install.
