Windows 7: Installing versions of Win 7 from USB

Installing versions of Win 7 from USB

I did an iso from my windows 7 dvd and used the Windows7-USB-DVD tool to install it in a usb flash drive. I removed the eicfg so i can choose any version (Ultimate, Home Premium..etc) and then created the usb version. The problem is that when i boot from the usb to install windows 7 it automatically shows Home Premium, no other so i can't pick the one i want. If i boot from the dvd (i created a dvd copy with the file removed too) it presents all versions.

Write the DVD as it exists to stick using Ultra ISO. On File tab open DVD, on Bootable tab Write Disk Image, Format, Write.

Follow the steps in the Perfect Install tutorial below.

How do you plan to activate>?

Use this tutorial instead doing the manual method to create a W7 USB install drive.

Do not use the installation tool from MSFT when you have used the eicfg removal utility to remove the eicfg file. It's ok to use something like ImgBurn to write a univeral Windows 7 DVD, but MSFT's tool does not respect the eicfg removal utility. Do it manually or use something like UltraISO.

Have a laptop that had 32bit Vista on it. I bought what I thought was a Windows 8 OS on it but it turned out too be an upgrade disk and we didn't find this out until we kept getting an activation problem. To cut a VERY long story short we have decided to ditch the Windows 8 and go 7. Plus we...
