The reason for all this is cause want to run W7 on my Dell, (though 10 Pro x64 installs fine), but have driver issues only 4 gigs memory and a fragile graphic card and none 64 bit version of I8kfanGUI utility.

Intent having all W7 updates slip streamed into the 7 SP1 provided by Megahertz.

10 Pro would run on my desktop.

Thanks.

Windows Setup Edition Configuration and Product ID Files

It is not necessary any more to have ei.cfg, unless you wish to limit the iso to specific versions and why do that?

Edition ID tells Windows setup which edition should be installed.
Channel can be either OEM or Retail.
VL represents Volume License and it can be either 1 (for True) or 0 (for False).
So the simple solution is, delete "ei.cfg" file from setup and it'll ask you to choose the desired Windows 7 version at the time of installation.

OEM has long been in recovery partition with (recovery disk which is not Win7iso), since then ei.cfg is basically obsolete. The Win7 iso from M$ hasn't been changed since addition of SP1. needed for upgrades, slip stream, has to be included in iso from M$ or it don't work.

Microsoft Volume Licensing is a term used by Microsoft to describe a program for organizations that need multiple Microsoft product licenses, but do not need multiple copies of the software media and the documentation that comes with the software.

Alexey2912,
No problem, I presumed you were familiar with Google.
Make sure you have your 25 character product key in that is active on the machine, you will have to reenter it after repair install
KeyFinder | Magical Jelly Bean
it is CD Key not Product ID
or
Find Windows Product Key Code (VBS Script) (Windows 10, 8.1, 8, 7 ...
Download, run, click on it copy, paste into notepad, save on desktop and either USB or paper print
