One disc to rule them all...

With the version of the Windows installer that comes with Win7, there is a new file at /Sources/ei.cfg that tells the Windows installer what OS it should install. Here’s what the file looks like from the ultimate disc:

[EditionID]
Ultimate
[Channel]
Retail
[VL]
0

if you remove ei.cfg so that the Windows installer is not told to install a specific version, it will revert to One Disc mode.

Return to “Windows Vista & 7”
