    For the last two days...sigh...I have been trying to make my own AIO slipstream disk.

    I have used the following guide:
    (cannot post link, its the standard one at "Into Windows"

    I did the following:
    1) Opened RT 7 Lite
    2) I was given the option of choosing which image to slipstream
    3) I selected Basic first, then allowed the slipstream process to run
    4) Saved the image

    Re-ran RT 7 Lite opening the newly saved image to run the slipstream process for Premium, then Professional and finally Ultimate.

    In VM Server I can chose which OS to install, and any and all OSes install correctly with SP1. However, as soon I burn a disk and attempt to run it, I get no choice of which OS I want. The disk just runs and installs Basic :(

    I have downloaded the utility to remove ei.cfg. When I run this, it says there is no ei.cfg file to remove.

    Please help, this is slowly driving me around the bend. :help2:

    Every version is included in x86 & x64 does not have a Starter edition... so a normal AIO would have 11 versions. so you will need.

    Windows 7 DVD/ISO (x86 & x64) – You can choose any edition, because the DVD holds the all editions i.e. Starter, Home Basic, Home Premium,Professional and Ultimate.
    Windows 7 Enterprise DVD/ISO (x86 & x64) – Windows 7 Enterprise is not available through retail channels.
    Windows Automation Installation Kit (WAIK for Windows 7)
    Blank DVD (DVD5 – 4GB in size) compatible DVD Burner and CD/DVD burning software (like Nero,ImgBurn)
