Deleting ei.cfg from the ISO will allow you to choose the edition to install (ULTIMATE, PROFESSIONAL, etc....).

The general consensus (albeit with some exceptions) seems to be the 3 part rar is essentially the same code as the "Gold" untouched version just w/o the bootable part.

I downloaded the new "Gold" version. Of the important files I checked, hashes match the files from the untouched version. So I haven't reinstalled and I'm still using the version I installed from the 3 part rar. Seems fine to me and is running well.

Yeah we used .bif file to just make a bootable ISO.

And you said it is same right with "gold rtm" ? What is your source ?

Comparing certain important file hashes from each version and finding them to match, and also this agrees with what others have found.

Really, just grab it off of MSDN or TechConnect next week, or get the retail version in October. Then you can be assured of the source and quality of the build...

I have cheked only 3 part MD5 values. The all 3 part was correct about md5.

But how can i check my os with gold rtm's md5 or hash values ?

Is there a way to check my os that same with gold rtm(i deleted the ISO :S ) ?

Not as far as I know. All you can do is compare hashes of various files from the install media of each version. Like, for example, the big one which is install.wim (iirc).
