    Has anyone come across a download for a "true" clean download for a Windows 7 AIO?

    I downloaded one during the first week of the RTM release and found one that works very well but has one issue.

    You can boot and choose x64 or x86 but after that it goes straight to Ultimate. I would like to be able to install any version from one disk or USB stick.

    I already have it mounted on a bootable stick and other than the version selection it works fine.

    There isn't a ei.cfg file in the sources folder so I am not sure why it goes only to an Ultimate installation.

    My hope is to have a USB stick with both x64 and x86, choose any version and also have Office 2007 on there..

    Any ideas or know of a different download that is correct? Or maybe even how I can repair this ISO...

    Thank you,,,,


    Well I looked at that and although it does say that it is compiled out of both x86 and x64 I am not really sure about the fact that it is a German/ English version.

    I'm not sure if my keys will work on that version with German. I will have US product keys. Also, I can't even tell where I click for download since the text is in German.

    Do I have to pay for this download?



    I found a tutorial on how to merge the two images with WAIK. So I may even attempt to do that..

    Did you look if the image you have donloaded has en ei.cfg file in the sources folder? If yes, you could delete it, then you should be able to install every edition.

    No there isn't the ei.cfg in the sources folder. This is why I don't understand why is doesn't work correctly. That was the first thing that I looked for.

    It may have been compiled incorrectly or something. It doesn't really make any sense.

    The installations of Ultimate work fine but I need to be able to install any version.

    Right now I am downloading WAIK and I will attempt to compile the two images.

    I have some directions that I found on a search and they are only 1 week old. It looks pretty straight forward. I have already set up my two image folders for x64 and AIO. The x64 files get merged into the AIO (already containing x86) by use of ImageX (WAIK)

    Hopefully, it isn't that difficult and then I will know that I have an ultra clean AIO disk and according to the tutorial, it will have all flavors of Window 7 to mount on a flash drive.

    Update

    Well,

    By using ImageX, which is a component of Microsoft WAIK, I was able to successfully merge the two (x86 and x64) images together.

    Now I have a bootable image that gives you 9 choices of Windows 7 and will do update installs from RC if needed.

    The choices are:

    Windows 7 Starter x86
    Windows 7 Home Basic x86
    Windows 7 Home Premium x86
    Windows 7 Professional x86
    Windows 7 Ultimate x86
    Windows 7 Home Basic x64
    Windows 7 Home Premium x64
    Windows 7 Professional x64
    Windows 7 Ultimate x64

    This image is now mounted on an 8 gb bootable USB stick (the Windows AIO takes up 3.6 gb) that also contains Office 2007 Ultimate and Professional. I still have plenty of room to add other programs so that I will have a great tool for installing Windows 7 on any PC including netbooks.

    I never did figure out why the first AIO disk (a torrent download) wouldn't give the options even with the ei.cfg folder missing. However, after doing this process I can see that the first AIO was more of a Frankenbuild from 7100 and 7600 files.:)

    Why doesn't MS have this all on 1 DVD? Why separate x86 & x64 bit editions.
    Also, at work, MS has sent us RTM edition dvd's. Each edition is on a separate DVD with it's own SHA1/CRC. Even the OPK DVD for each edition has a different SHA1/CRC! Such a load of crap...

    Because unless you're installing it on more than 1 PC, you would have no need for x86 and x64 versions.

    there is no "true" (read MS) AIO iso. However making one is no big deal, specialy if you dont want/need to have differenent architectures (removing ei.cfg), however if you do want, then you need to dism around a little bit :).

    Just Download the Ultimate version and open the ISO with whatever program you use. Once inside just delete ei.cfg and then save the ISO.
    You will now have the option of installing any version you want.

    We know that, we are talking about merging 32 and 64 bit ISO together to make a bootable disk for install all versions including 64 bit..

    Just wondering, has anyone made a DVD image yet with both the x86 & x64?

    If not I may try. I just don't want to waste my life splitting the files into a crapload of 200 meg parts and uploading them all onto some crappy file host, only to have them taken down almost as fast as they are put up. Any good places to up the whole thing if I succeed? Something like that Russian site that had the direct, complete entire ISO files of the RTM/MSDN versions? I can't read/speak Russian, so I can't use it.
