    Is your ISO from the OEM (Dell/HP etc.)? If so, there may be registry settings like:

    Code:
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\OEMInformation] "Logo"="C:\\Windows\\System32\\oemlogo.bmp" "Manufactuter"="whatever you want" "SupportHours"="whatever you want" "SupportURL"="whatevery you want" "SupportPhone"="(555)whatevery you want
    
    As for getting rid of that info on a dvd, you can:

    a) download an untouched version
    b) use the DISM

    There is a thread here which may help you with what you are trying to achieve.

    Edit

    According to this

    So in hind site, you can just delete the "$oem$" folder in your W7 > "sources" folder and it should use the default

    Than it's clearly a modifies Windows 7 Image, but untouched!

    You'll never know, what they really had done while modifying, it could be true what they say and even just BS! So, don't use it if you like to be 100% safe!

    I trust the source his done it so people don't take credit for his work. Anyone made a registry file to delete manufacturer and model info from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\OEMInformation. Would be nice if MS released SP2 instead of hunting down unofficial ones.
