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.

Dumb question here, how do i test it to make sure all versions are on the .iso file like the image above? Thanks.

I used a VM, but you can just cancel the install if you want to stop it after you get to that screen.
