    In the \sources\ folder of the ISO delete ei.cfg, then it will offer the choice for all versions during install.

    That is correct, but it doesn't explain how a Pro ISO installs Basic without modding/deleting the ei.cfg :g:

    Code:
    X17-59186.iso        en_windows_7_professional_with_sp1_x64_dvd_u_676939.iso        ed15956fe33c13642a6d2cb2c7aa9749    0bcfc54019ea175b1ee51f6d2b207a3d14dd2b58

    Had this error too but after second try it worked fine. I am only using it because it offers full USB3+other driver package. More odd, I've tried to upgrade to Windows 7 Professional using MSI OEM SLP key and it didn't work. Then I tried othr manufacturer key and it worked fine. So check those keys, some are flawed.

    If you use the OEM:SLP key from the sticky, then they are well tested. It would be better if you can provide an error log.

    dear all,

    i bought lenovo ideapad 700-15ISK with windows 10 pre-installed.
    I'm not really into windows 10 because some of limitation i had in running of software.

    read about biosmod, seem like it having locked bios and it refrain me to do activation with loader/kms. prefer with gpt partition.

    what option do i left to enable windows 7 running on this machine?

    Hello, I'm having an issue where after I use the download tool, it says it wasn't able to make the USB drive a bootable device. Then when i try to install windows 7, it says there are files missing. Please help.

    Hello, I am currently preparing the USB from the ISO image (Step 4). However, I am unable to select my Seagate 1TB external hard drive from the drop down menu within the download tool. The message 'No compatible USB devices detected' is displayed. I was wondering if there is a way to solve this issue?

    Step 5 is the clue ;) USB Flash/Pen drive. A USB HDD is not compatible.

    A 4gb or 8gb USB flash stick is preferable as anything over 16gb can cause a few problems with booting or corrupted data, not sure why maybe the way the memory stick is made.

    Actually, I've been using a 32GB stick as a multiboot media and never had problems with it. Made with WinSetupFromUSB. I have a 64GB stick as well, but I never got around to trying it as an installation media, never had the need to, so I can't say anything about 64GB bootable USBs.
