Windows 7: Installing Windows 7, but don't want Ultimate

Installing Windows 7, but don't want Ultimate

I know there's a tutorial somewhere on the internets about how to do this, but can someone link me to where it tells you how you can make it so when you're installing Windows 7, you can have it install Home Premium instead of Ultimate?

Last thread today I swear..

Windows 7 Ultimate x64.

But you will have to use a crack because the keys are only intended for ultimate. And I would not recommend them as you never know whats in the goody bag.

You need to edit the ISO file (PowerISO would be best) and navigate to the sources directory and delete the ei.cfg file. This will allow you to choose which version you can install (althought your product key might not work).

Just back up the ISO file first

As for the product key, Windows 7 will still work for 30 days.
