Win 7 Pro Install

As above how do I install the pro version (from the 7600.16385.090713-1255_x64fre_cliente_en-us_Retail_UltimateE) so I can just activate it when my copy comes, Probably been asked before but I can't find the posts for it.
TIA Andy

Hi there
(can't wait for the REAL UK footie to start again) Getting "Withdrawl symptoms".

I think you need to edit the ei.cfg file on the iso. copy to HD, edit and re-burn.

Can't remember the exact posts but you can google on ei.config or search the forum.

cheers

You just remove ei.cfg from the iso prior to burning so it can then give you the choice of which to install.

I do hope you have a KEY for Pro.
and removing the EI.cfg does all you to choose which version you install.
YOU STILL NEED A LEGIT KEY TO ACTIVATE.

Maybe it would be mo' better to use:

7600.16385.090713-1255_x64fre_cliente_en-us_Retail_Ultimate then...

I've already done an iso (from _Ultimate) with 'Professional' in the ei.cfg and put it in MS VPC 2007.

Works... 30 days worth...
