Surely you only need the Windows 7 version that you have the key for?
Why do you want all versions?

Hi tatts36,

You can download the ISO file from here:

TechBench

Then use the following information:

Windows (Final) > Windows 7 SP1 (build 7601) > Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 > English > Win_Ult_SP1_English_x64.iso

Obviously change the language and bit type to suit.

Then delete the ei.cfg file (this will make all versions available) from the ISO and then burn it to a DVD and off you go.
Then on installation you can select whatever version of Windows 7 you have the license key for on the other computers.

I hope this helps!

The ei.cfg file is located in the sources folder within the ISO.

You can either extract the ISO files, delete the ei.cfg file then create a new ISO, or use a tool to remove it.

This will unlock all versions for install.
