    I'm in the MSDNAA and have downloaded a x64 WIn Vista Business disk, now My laptop runs a x64 windows home premieum. long story short my HomePrem recoery media doesnt work. and I dont have a HomePrem disk. How do I make my x64 Business DVD to a AIO disk, as far as i know its not as easy as just deleting ei.cfg in windows 7 disks. what do i have to do to make the dition menu come up in the disk? btw my laptop has a legit COA, nothing needs to be intergrated keys wise.

    Create the AIO same way as you would create a W7 AIO, thats it if I remember it correct.
    Might have to edit..was it a pid file? But that shoudnt be necessary since MSDNN ISO's are retailversions.

    Well almost the same way. You'd have to download all versions I believe and merge them, unless you download Ultimate. geez like I said I could be wrong but
    one thing is certain, you cant make a complete AIO with all versions and expect them to fit on a DVD5 (Single layer)

    Ah, thanks for your help! Not good then :/ I'll see if i can find a home premieum disk floating around on ebay or amazon sans COA. Never mind. Again thanks for letting me know. at least M$ Took the right step by throwing everything into one disk then with win 7! makes my life so much easier!
