    ...did you read 'Jessica Alba's' comment above? You DON'T need to modify ei.cfg or any other file for that matter as both versions are on the disk. :rolleyes:
    If you put a 'Core key' = Win 8 Core will be installed. If you put a 'Professional key' = Win 8 Professional will be installed. - Loads of key's available to install either version; Google is your friend. ;)

    OEM EI.CFG

    Code:
    [EditionID]
    
    [Channel]
    OEM
    [VL]
    0
    RETAIL EI.CFG
    Code:
    [EditionID]
    
    [Channel]
    Retail
    [VL]
    0
    [EditionID] has to be there just nothing in the line directly under it. If you want to install a specific version then add CORE or PROFESSIONAL under the [EditionID] line. DO NOT DELETE [EditionID] FROM EI.CFG. When you add one of the EI.CFG files I have shown above, you will be asked what version of windows you would like to install.

    Tips:

    Add Volume to [CHANNEL] and change [VL] to 1 if you would like to skip adding a key during installation.

    Make sure you place EI.CFG in the sources folder.

    Someone curious to check the differences?

    ...and maybe make a delta if there is a reason to...


    Could be simply padding data added to one of the ISOs.
