Windows® 7 Edition Switcher
Learn about the features and uses of the Windows 7 Edition Switcher.
The Windows 7 media includes all the versions inside the same disc. The difference from Windows Vista is that Windows 7 does not let you choose from the different versions available when you install the operating system. The Windows 7 Edition Switcher lets you easily do that, and gives you the possibility to switch from, for example, Windows 7 Home to Windows 7 Ultimate. These new and simple applications let you convert any Windows 7 ISO file to the version that you need, and it only takes a few clicks. You just select the patch from the zip file that you downloaded from the website, select the ISO file that you wish to convert and you are done.

Solution to patch Windows 7
You need a Windows 7 Professional set-up disk or ISO image if you want to install this specific edition of Windows 7. It provides the users with a solution to patch a Windows 7 ISO, so that it can install a different version of the operating system during set-up. The users who install the operating system still need a valid product key for the Windows 7 edition that gets installed afterwards. But the need to re-download or create an ISO image no longer delays the installation.
How Windows 7 Edition Switcher works
It is possible to turn the Windows 7 Ultimate edition into Windows 7 Professional. Portable software programs come with patch files, which need to be loaded after execution. You need to pick the target version that you want to install and then the ISO image on the computer’s hard drive. Then, the program can patch the ISO image so that the selected edition of Windows 7 can be installed. Another patch can turn a Windows 7 ISO into an universal disk which can be used to install all the different editions of Windows 7.
The Removal Utility is a simple tool that will remove the ei.cfg from any of the Windows 7 ISO disc image, thereby converting the image into a universal disc. This disc prompts the users to select an edition during set-up. It works by toggling the deletion bit in the UDF file table, eliminating the need for unpacking and rebuilding the ISO, which means that this is extremely fast and the process is easily reversible.
