    Select only 3 versions to install... DONE.

    How to edit windows 7 iso, which will give to select only this three versions of Windows 7 (SKUs), Home Premium, Professional and Ultimate from Ultimate iso downloaded from ThechNet.
    Deleting ei.cfg will give 5 versions (SKUs).

    I would use imagex to remove the unwanted images (Starter and Home Basic) from install.wim, then rebuild the ISO.

    you can export the images into a new .WIM file...
    edit: just skip the lines of the images that you don't want to add...

    you could either export images 3-5 to a new install.wim. Maybe it makes it smaller too.
    Or you use the imagex /delete command to delete a specific image

    ok, end I think the same using imagex /delete, but I'm still downloading Windows Automated Installation Kit, its going so slow 30 kB on 10Mbit adsl.
    My ISP is making upgrade until September 1-st :(

    Done.

    I made it.
    Here is a tutorial.
    1. Using UltraISO Extract install.wim from Sources in your windows 7 ultimate iso to the temp folder C:\Temp
    2. extrct imagex from imagex.7z to C:\Temp
    3. open command prompt in C:\Temp
    4. Type this command 2 times imagex /delete install.wim 1
    (first time to remove starter, starter is index 1, second time to remove home basic, now home basic is index 1)
    5. put back this modified install.win in Sources in Windows 7 iso using UltraISO
    6. delete ei.cfg from Sources in Windows 7 iso
    7. Save the iso.

    work harder not smarter, use Gimagex. Less fuss with CMD line and you should also add enterprise to your iso as well.

    Do you need to edit/remove any files when you have deleted all except "Home Premium"

    Like any of these:

    install_Windows 7 STARTER.clg
    install_Windows 7 HOMEBASIC.clg
    install_Windows 7 HOMEPREMIUM.clg
    install_Windows 7 PROFESSIONAL.clg
    install_Windows 7 ULTIMATE.clg
    ei.cfg
