Yes it's all very helpful thanks,

You said to "delete the ei.cfg " or we can't delete files from iso and I should 1st copy files and then create fresh iso?( I get error using Daemon tools)

I'm gonna be installing it on ssd, so USB stick with ntfs format will work ? Thanks

No, you don't need to do that, and you don't need to use Daemon tools for any of this!

To make it easier, you could just download [to the desktop] and run this utility which will remove the ei.cfg file from the sources folder automatically: eicfg_removal_utility.zip

I hope this helps!

Hi. I downloaded the iso but the option to delete or rename the ei.cfg file doesn't appear with right click. Has it already been removed? Looks like a blank (white) file?


I can't seem to use the ei tool either - just says "error opening or reading the disc image"

Sounds like the download didn't complete properly. If the iso has been fully downloaded, it should appear in windows 7 as a little siver disc icon. like this:

Which edition, bit version and language do you need?

I may be offline for a while today, swapping the motherboard on this machine.

New Q's about the Techbench site with the iso's, because I'm new at this

What's Win7Ult SP1 COEM? Same as OEM? and GGK?

I have a tip for other people downloading. If it's already been mentioned, just ignore me, I only skimmed the whole thread.

Dism++
is a program that will decide what updates you need, minus the telemetry and forced updates for Win 10, then oversee the installation. I used it on a Win7 Repair Install, and it saved me loads of time, aggravation and energy. SIW2 told me about it.

An OEM [Original Equipment Manufacturer] license is what Dell, HP, Lenovo, Toshiba etc, use. If it is an OEM then it has probably got a Factory Reset recovery/restore partition.

Basically, OEM comes from the manufacturer. COEM comes from a person/business who builds to the manufacturer's specification.

Yes, DISM++ is an excellent way to quickly update [Windows Updates] the OS on both the OFFLINE OS or the LIVE OS..

DISM++ - Basic Overview

DISM++ is a FREE implementation tool that has the ability to perform Windows Updates [WU]. Some of the advantages [but not all] are:

[1] The GUI is very easy to understand and use.
[2] It is much faster than M$’s WU because it uses a different engine.
[3] It downloads the DB from M$, scans your OS, and then lists the updates available.
[4] It gives you the option of what you want to install.
[5] The pre-ticked updates is what is recommended - similar to the WU critical and recommended updates as opposed to the un-ticked updates which is similar to WU optional.
[6] It doesn’t install superseded updates like M$ does.
[7] It warns you if an update includes telemetry, if it has known issues with certain hardware, if it needs exclusive access, if it is suspect, or if it has any other known issues.
[8] It doesn’t require re-booting between updates.
[9] It can be used to either update an install.wim image OFFLINE, or to update the LIVE OS.

I hope this helps!
