Windows 7: Open all versions

31 May 2016   #1

Open all versions

I had a need to install 32 bit Win7 starter on a clients netbook. While I have high end iso's I didn't have this. As we all know Win7 ultimate has all versions...but you gotta dig.

Searching how to do this all I could find is editing the iso and remove ei.cfg from the iso, rebuild the iso burn to disk..whew!!

this works way more better...use a program to make a USB boot drive from your 32 or 64 bit iso. I use FREE Once your usb stick is made open..go to sources, DELETE ei.cfg . Next time you do an install with this stick you will get a menu with a choice of ALL versions of op systems. You will still need a valid key for the version you want but they are all there for your install pleasure

Yep, we`ve been doing that with the dvd installer since 2009 It`s not limited to Ultimate.

But now you can download any version you want from the Tech Bench :)

And with Asus`s EZ Installer you can also integrate 3.0 USB drivers very easily :)
