    Good day my Digital friends.
    with Windows 7 I had create a iso for mulptiple version everytime I boot with the iso it asks me which version to use home/prem/pro ect...
    as I understand Windows 10 doesn't support the ei.cfg file.
    i've Downlaod Windows 10 multiple edition and burned the ISO to a usb, but somehow Windows 10 boot detect just windows 10 ENT.
    can someone please correct me what I am doing wrong here ?

    much appreciate it guys.

    The Multiple editions iso doesn't contain Enterprise so whatever you've downloaded is not an original Multiple Editions iso (ME iso = Home + Pro).

    Win 10 can handle an ei.cfg but that shouldn't be necessary because by skipping the key questions it should show you all editions on the iso.

    There is only 1 exception, when your system is a oem brand system with 8.x/10 pre-installed it will have a bios oem:Dm key for the windows which was pre-installed, only in that situation an ei.cfg or a pid.txt can be used to overrule the setup auto-selecting the edition for which the oem:Dm bioskey works.

    thank you guys for the answer.
    i've downloaded the multiple edition from MSDN. Win10_1511_1_Dutch_x64
    now it's can chose between Win10 / Win 10 Pro.
    trying to format a windows 10 pc and reinstall it and see if the activation will be applied after the windows is reinstalled

    all should go well, it will(should) install the same edition that the hardware came with.

    good luck

    it comes with Wi7 Pro, after we had update it to Win 10 Pro. now trying the Key.
    the only different is the ISO is Win 10 N , as I understand Win 10 N is Windows Without Media player , Camera TV, Music so I am fine with as long as it activated :)

    The 10 N iso is only capable of upgrading Win 7SP1 N. It also cannot use the HWID established by upgrading non n 7 to non n 10.

    When you upgrade 7 Pro with the 10 Multiple editions iso you won't have to use any key, it gets a HWID, clean installs of 10 pro, after upgrading once, don't need keys.

    Thank you sir.
    something is wrong with the ISO I believe , it asks for the key during the installation , so I skip it, now the windows is not activated even the activation was successfully done before !
    I am using the Dutch version.
    do you know which iso I have to use ?

    thank you sir

    I don't get what you now want, if you want re-install the win 10 edition, you can legitimatly use by the established HWID, you have to install 10 Pro from boot and skip the key questions.

    During initial setup select: "Ik heb geen productcode" and during OOBE: "Doe dit later" and it will be activated by HWID (digitaal recht).

    No need for an ei.cfg file.

    @OZ, he doesn't have a N key ;)

    The multiple editions iso contains HOME AND PRO, no need to create homebrew.

    If the machines are selfbuild or had 7 SP1 pre-installed, there is NO NEED for any ei.cfg file at all.
