Wondering if there are any links to where I can download the various install.wim files?

I have Win7 Pro (retail) box/package which comes with both the 32-bit and 64-bit DVD's, and I'll be trying making a single 32+64 disc of course, but to make a "universal" install disk as described in this thread where can I get the wim's for Home Premium, Ultimate etc?

Am I reading this thread correctly in that my "Pro" discs have the other versions on them, and only need to be unlocked with the wims to be able to install the other versions?
(with an appropriate lic key for the version too of course)

If you read the tutorial - you will see the images for all the editions are already on the dvd's you already have.

That is why there are several imagex commands - each command exports a different image from the 64 bit install.wim ( which you already have) into the 32 bit install ( which you also already have).

It also explains deleting the ei.cfg file.

You have everything you need - you are good to go

You might find this link easier to follow

Thanks.

That's just it, I've been reading though this thread and some folks are downloading additional versions and pointing to their wim's when doing the imagex thing, so I wanted confirmation that my DVD has all I need, again thanks.

I have made a disk and have yet to try it out. Any way of trying it before actually installing? maybe mounting the iso or something?

Hello Redhouse, welcome to Seven Forums!

You can run the DVD within Windows, just X out and don't go further than this dialog box.

I use just the ISOs to install to VirtualBox.

You mean the ISO itself, or the setup.exe from the folder I make my iso in?

I undersood you to say you have created an AIO DVD correct?

While in Windows put the DVD in ther drive and run the setup.exe from the autoplay.

or you should be able to just run the setup.exe from the folder.

Either way, you should see weather or not Setup lists all versions. I just ran the Setup from the folder and it's showing all versions =) That's how I tested mine before I burned it to DVD, or created a install USB stick.

It is, sorry doing 2 things at once. it's 3.88gb, and comes out to 4,075,968KB.
DRAT .. I think my OCZ Rally2 Turbo USB drive is 3.82 GB .. I was really wanting a all-in-one USB flash installer
I got my AIO USB .. but had to remove some files in order for it to work. I deleted the UPGRADE folder, which only had .NET installers
