[Win8.1] Choice of edition and serial integration in the iso

Recommended Posts

Since the Windows Update 8.1 Update (Multiple Editions) MSDN iso includes the retail editions of the Core and Professional, how I should do to change this iso so that, during the installation, allow me to choose which edition to install?

 

In addition, I would include in this iso my two serial numbers of installation (one for the Core and the other for the Professional) so that I should not insert any serial number during installation.

 

So, what should I do to reach my goal?

 

Thanks

 

Bye

Use an Autounattend.xml file for each edition. The only real way to do what you want is to create a custom boot.wim that has a program (or script/batch) that launches first. Then you choose your option and it will launch setup with the appropriate unattend file. See here for reference (this topic uses WinRE to launch setup)

Inject your serial with dism into each edition

 

dism /Image:<path_to_mounted_image> /Set-ProductKey:12345-12345-12345-12345-12345
Then use sources\ei.cfg to skip serial entering dialog

I thought that, if I insert the ei.cfg file

in the sources directory in my iso, I could choose the retail edition to install. That's right?

Instead, how do I create the file Autounattend.xml to insert my two serial numbers that correspond to those of the Core and Professional?

Inject your serial with dism into each edition

dism /Image:<path_to_mounted_image> /Set-ProductKey:12345-12345-12345-12345-12345

The DISM command mentioned above can be applied to each volume image stored in the file install.wim? If so, how do I do this?

Thanks
