Yes, the same way.

You need the install media which contains install.wim. (MSDN/Technet editions of the iso)

The thing from download/upgrade assistant is no use.
I don't know if my download would be considered MSDN/Technet. I know that I go into the Volume Licensing Center to download it. I have access and have downloaded both the Full version and the Upgrade version of the ISO. If I copy all the files from the full version onto my computer then use the imagex to move it to my Custom Build Files, what number do I use in the extract command. Would I use 5 to make it load at the end of the list I have? I know that I used 1 through 4 for all the other items, but I know in the Enterprise version, its 1 in its install.wim file. Thanks

@ southern,

I believe that response you quoted was directed to the Windows 8 question I added at the top of this post from Chiumiento.

Ok, I was not sure, that is why I added mine. Never hurts to ask to clarification. Do you by chance know the answer that I am looking for. Before I burn my disk, I would like to make it complete, including Enterprise 32/64 so its all on the disk if its possible. Thanks

No problem, I have made a few of these discs but never with Enterprise included, so I can't really answer your question on that, SIW2 may know how to accomplish that, sorry.

I haven't been here much lately, and haven't looked at all the posts here .. I've made a AIO Win7 USB tumbstick .. and now want to burn that folder to a bootable DVD.

What do I need to do in Imgburn or whatever to make a bootable AIO Win 7 from the files/folder I have?

After opening ImgBurn, choose "Create image file from files/folders."

One question. I downloaded the ISO file for Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit. After it was finished downloading, I ran the ei.cfg Removal Utility on the file and created a Windows 7 bootable USB stick. However, when I installed Windows 7, I didn't get the option to choose any 32-bit version of Windows 7 (I wanted to install Starter for a friend since he has a valid key). Does the removal utility only work if the copy of Windows 7 is going to be burned to DVD as opposed to USB stick?
