Inserting the serial number in an ISO

  1. #31


    If I insert the EI.cfg file

    Code:
    [Channel] 
    Retail 
    [VL] 
    0
    in the source directory of the Windows 8.1 Update (Multiple Edition) MSDN iso, during the installation, I can choose the edition, but, when I go to check his distribution channel, I notice that it is still Volume and not Retail. How come?

    Thanks

    I'm not sure what you mean, but see this link.

    Can and How to convert Win 8 retail to volume channel

    yes there are vl and retail versions in win 8.
    to change retail to vl or vice versa just change ur key using

    Code:
    cscript slmgr.vbs /ipk:{key}
    note if using cscript goto c:\windows/system32 in cmd. or else just run cmd as admin

    Actually, I would need to know how to properly convert an Windows 8.1 Update (Multiple Edition) VL/MSDN iso to a Retail iso.

    So, how do I do this?

    Thanks

    Hi

    I have noticed that, installing Windows 8.1 Update Core or Pro with the Multiple Editions MSDN iso, I see, with the slmgr.vbs /dli command, that its distribution channel is Retail. If, however, I add the EI.cfg file

    Code:
    [Channel]
    Retail
    [VL]
    0
    in sources directory of the iso using Windows ADK for Windows 8.1 Update, the distribution channel becomes Volume. How come? Where am I wrong?

    Thanks

    Bye
