    I tried to create a universal disc using the steps at seven forums, but when I tried to test it on my virtual machine, it says that no operating system is found. Was I supposed to remove the ei.cfg file from both discs or only one or what?

    How did you make this "universal disc"? Is it an AIO (All in one?) with all 32bit and 64bit?

    Have you followed the guide precisely and is it bootable? Make sure it its beacuse it seems it isnt.

    I followed the instructions. I would post the link but I can't post a link until I have 20 posts. It is an all in one disc, but how do I check to make sure it's bootable?

    Boot it up in a PC lol. if it boots and you reach installation its probably good to go. Although an old HDD could be used to test this (or acronis image pc before use if no old hdd spare)

    Well of course, why not?

    Think it reformats all your harddrives as soon as you start the setup? p

    EDIT: I beat the system. Here are the instructions I followed on how to create it. I used the original MSDN image files and used the ei.cfg removal tool on both image files. Everything said it was successful at installing and I created a new image from the Win7_32 folder by highlighting the content inside and using PowerISO.

    What's wrong?

    Turns out the first iso that I created wasn't bootable. Thanks for the help!
