Windows 10: Windows 10 4 in 1 installer Solved

    An ei.cfg will stop the auto detection and use of an OEM Embedded key. In that instance you'll get all the menus you would if installing on a PC with no embedded key. 32 or 64, Home Pro etc. A PID text file will override the OEM key too, but it installs a specific version by default. I use one to force install Pro as my laptop has a Windows 8.0 Core key. If I don't use a PID.txt with a Pro key, I get 10 Home by default with no choice. Even if Home is installed by default, doing a quick "change product key" and entering a Pro key will do an inplace upgrade to Pro. It just unlocks and enables the Pro features missing from Home. If the PC already has a DL for Pro, just use the generic key posted above in the PID.txt example. I only ever use 64 install media. I have no need for 32 bit here at home. Even if the PC doesn't have an OEM key, using a PID.txt has advantages. If you already know what version your installing, even if its Home. Adding a PID.txt will speed things up slightly. No having to enter a product code, or click I don't have one. No having to select Home from the menu. If your install media is a USB thumb drive adding one is easy peasy. Before the days of the Digital License, I had a dedicated thumb drive for each PC and the PID.txt had the actual Windows 8 or 10 key used on that specific PC. Now I just use the generic keys.
