Windows 7: Professional off Ultimate CD

25 Oct 2009   #1

Professional off Ultimate CD


I just have a quick question that I am hoping someone will know the answer to. Previously I have had to install my laptop using Vista Ultimate CD but with a professional key which would just downgrade the installation.

What I would like to know is can I do the same thing with Windows 7 as I am getting my MAPs(Microsoft Action pack) today which I only just found out has 10 Licenses of Professional and only 1 license for ultimate.

I am currently downloading Professional but looks like its gonna take some time.

delete the ei.cfg file from the install DVD and all versions will show up, if they are on the disk.
