Should popup before that.
I could be wrong, but doesn't it have to be an ultimate disc? Isn't that the only one that contains all versions of 7?

I've only ever used the Ultimate edition ISO's and had no problems removing the ei.cfg file and it always let's me choose editions.
I haven't tried on any of the other edition ISO's though. I always thought it was just the Ultimate disc that had all the versions though.

Looking like the case I guess I'll have to wait for my new oem system builders pro disk to show up later this week :/
Thanks for the heads up I missed the ultimate requirement

All Windows 7 ISO's can be universal.

Hi Jerry, I didn't realise that.
I always thought that because of the size difference in iso's that the larger ultimate one would contain all the versions.
Even more of a mystery then!

Thrash you could try using something like ultraiso trial and just manually deleting the file. I've also used that method too.
