Windows 7: how to choose different versions?

how to choose different versions?

I have now the RTM ISO, and I want to install it now without the cd-key, as the Danish version is over a week away, but how do I make sure, that it is a Home Premium I install from the iso?

AFAIR should there be a choise right after the screen to type in the CD-key, and in case you don't, then you will be able to choose which version to install.

Buttom line is, I want to install now, and them give it my cd-key when I can buy one, and if I install Ultimate, then I guess my Home Premium key don't work.

In earlier builds it was a file (an .ini-file?) you would have to edit, but I can't remember how, and I don't know if it is the same on the RTM-version.

Removing the ei.cfg reveals all versions. You can also edit it to reveal the version you need. You can look up the editing part. I don't know how. I hope this helps.
