There is no ei.cfg in W8, even adding one like mentioned in that link, doesn't do anything. It tries to bypass it but it gives an error.

That's a neat tool but even making an AIO ISO a few times, I can't get past this screen,

So even though the ISO has all the versions, you still need the key which will just install that version anyway.

Unless someone else has a way around it, I don't think it can be done.

Thanks for the info, derekimo!

Have to agree with you. Anything found so far, leads to believe that you still need the Product Key which will just install the particular version supported by the key.


Have a great weekend! :D
