I am a new user to SU. Sorry if this has already been asked before. I did ask a user in a comment a while back.
Anyway here goes : I assembled my own PC. I purchased the OEM version from the market here in India of Windows 7 Home Basic 32 bit.
I have since upgraded my RAM to 8 GB the maximum permissible under Windows 7 Home Basic.
I am trying to upgrade my OS to 64 bit. For that I downloaded Windows 7 from Microsoft. I could only get Professional edition. OK No problem. I downloaded the ei cfg utility that removes the ei cfg file from the ISO. But while installing it did not present me with a choice of OS versions. It only installed the professional version.
So I restored the ei cfg file, changed the version to Windows 7 Home Basic. Now while booting from DVD-ROM I get an error saying the key does not match any of the images.
I am legitimate user, but these days it is difficult to find the links to my version on DigitalRiver.
What am I doing wrong? I realize the setup has changed.
Is there a pre-SP1 version that gives me OS choices? (I would appreciate links official or torrents).
