@Shadowjk, Yes and it's kind of annoying (the screen) - Windows boot manager .. as i said a few posts back, i get to chose between Windows Home Premium or windows home premium (Recovered) which is the old one (the original) but that doesnt work due to the virus messing up something.

I meant when booting the Disk (Sorry If I am mistaken)

Do you get this during Install?

That looks like the windows boot loader OS selection screen you get when you have a dual boot. If thats true your booting from your hard drive not the Windows 7 DVD.

Shadowjk wanted to know what you see when you "boot from your Windows 7 DVD"? Do you get a menu asking you to select what edition you want to install or does it install Home Premium by default? I guess we just assumed you would try booting from the DVD to see what you get.

To boot into that iso Image you will have needed to Mount it and to mount it you will need a Blank DVD - We need you to boot into that DVD you made and proceed through an Installation and see if you get that Image i showed you above

If so that means ei.cfg is not present on your ISO Image
