tried going through the step, but got this result when I click the Setup.exe in the USB. No choice of OS's really.

Did you try selecting "Install Now" ?

Hello.


As SIW suggests, you have to click through a few windows/dialog boxes to get to this selection window, when you get here you can just remove the disk and X out of the install in you were just testing.

Sorry BFK anf MM, the 8 install screen is a mashup I made.
The 7 install screen showed up, I clicked install now and it started loading files. It was continuing to install. when does the OS selection screen show up? I was just taking it for a test run.

Hello Gary.


I just checked mine and if you get to #5 before you get the version selection screen then X out as it must not be done correctly.

What about SP1?

If I have the ISOs for Win 7 Ultimate with SP1 (x86 and x64) do I need to download and install the WAIK Supplement for SP1, and use it to modify the SP1 wim file? Thought I'd ask since this doesn't seem to be addressed in the thread so far.
