    Hello MDL'ers.

    I seem to remember you could use a Windows 7 Ultimate iso and use the ei.cfg removal to unlock Pro and Home as well, but it does not seem to work for me. I do not get the option to choose version during install, it just installs Ultimate.
    Am I doing this right?? :g:

    Best, Bjørn

    The tool doesn't remove the ei.cfg, it 'hides' the file by altering ISOs file table. Saw mixed results so far. Better to delete it.

    Actually I cannot find it here, however I have the sha1 of my file (search is really bad after the update of the forum :( )
    Code:
    SHA1: 123521243d6547be3523cd3cafa66c1e7c40b218
    I used this tool before and never had an issue with it. :(

    Got a new iso from @LostED and will try again. Not same sha1 value, thought the tech bench was iso from MS?

    Why not just download the genuine Ultimate iso, open it with PowerISO(for example), delete ei.cfg and save the changes? At least you'll know exactly what is changed in the iso file since all you'll be doing is manually deleting a single file.
    Deleting the .clg files isn't mandatory, but it doesn't cause problems either, so no worries there.

    Oh, and also is it possible to add USB-3 drivers into the .iso so it can be installed on almost any PC? Maybe someone should make a stickied guide? I know I did this before but now I forgot it all and Im just s**t at this :sad:

    Yeah, the .iso I got from @LostED worked, now it asks for version. What was that I downloaded from techbench then?? :thinking:

    Norwegian x64

    The one I got from techbench had SHA1
    Code:
    123521243d6547be3523cd3cafa66c1e7c40b218
    whilst the "real" one had SHA1
    Code:
    6f487f2a523c3de8e2d9c9d113b42c56ae7a10dc
