Windows 7: Trying to make a multiple win7 edition CD

Trying to make a multiple win7 edition DVD

So i am making a updated windows 7 DVD with some programs, driver packs, windows updates etcc. I am using the wintoolkit to do so....So i knew of the ei.cfg trick to make my DVD be able to install any version of windows 7. So i did so using the toolkit (and manually) But it wont work. I dont get the screen to choose the OS version. I am using the latest windows 7 SP1 from my volume licensing account. Could it being a volume licensing ISO make a difference?

Any help would be awesome thanks

CD or DVD? A Windows 7 iso takes up 3.09GB and won't fit on a CD.

Trust me, your computer cares about the difference.

Look in the Sources folder to see if the ei.cfg file is there.

You can include the latest updates following the steps here: TEST -Update 7 installation media

Let us know what stable method you find to slip drivers in.

I looked and it aint there. As for integrating drivers i am downloading drivers packs from a website that Win toolkit suggests and integrating them.

What are these drivers for? Are they newer drivers issued since SP1?

If there's no ei.cfg file and you don't get a menu to choose version then it is single version installer.
