download one of the following:
Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit
http://msft-dnl.digitalrivercontent.net/msvista/pub/X15-65732/X15-65732.iso

You are going to edit the contents of the .ISO file and remove the ei.cfg file. After editing burn it to a blank DVD disk or put it on a thumb drive. Boot from it, this will reveal all editions of Windows 7, select the Home Basic edition. More information in the following article about how to edit the ei.cfg file

Ei.cfg Removal Utility Lets You Use Any Product Key

we will edit the image and remove the ei.cfg file so we can reveal all editions of Windows 7 during the installation and select Windows 7 Home Basic . Lets take a look at doing it step by step.



After downloading the eicfg removal utility, you need to extract, since its in a .zip file. Just right click it and click Extract All.



Double click the eicfg_remover.exe file to launch it.



Browse to where the Windows 7 Image (.ISO file) is stored, select it and click Open.


Burn the edited image to a blank DVD and proceed to boot from it.


ImgBurn - In addtion to supporting the creation of CD's from .ISO files,
it supports a wide range of other image file formats, and it's free.
(BIN, CUE, DI, DVD, GI, IMG, MDS, NRG, PDI and ISO)

Note: Always use the slowest burn speed (4x or 2x) if offered a choice.
--------------------------

Windows 7 will boot as it normally does into the setup environment, the only difference this time is, you will be given a choice to select the edition of Windows 7 you want to reinstall. Carefully click through during the setup wizard.



Select Windows 7 Home Basic and proceed with the installation as normal. I suggest that you create a backup once the installation is complete.

Once setup is completed, you should have Windows 7 Starter installed. You can enter the product key and activate using the following method:

Click Start, type: CMD'

Right click CMD

Click Run as adminstrator

At the command prompt, type the following commands:

slmgr.vbs -ipk xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx (allows you to replace the current product key with the specified)

xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx - represents your product key

Reinstall Windows Preinstalled On Computer

When Windows comes installed with the computer, OEM computer manufacturers are required to provide at least one way for you to reinstall Windows - your computer should have included either a restore partition on your hard drive, or Windows install/restore disks. Most computer manufacturers also have a feature to make your own install disks.

If the restore partition is still there and was not removed, it will reinstall Windows. There is usually a prompt when you first start the computer telling you what key to press to start the restore - check your manual if you're not sure how to. Or if you have install disks - insert them, restart and boot from them to start the reinstall process.

If you restore it to factory condition, it will be like it was when you first bought it - all preinstalled programs will be installed. Anything you installed after buying it must be reinstalled. This will remove any personal files on the computer, back them up first.
 

Preinstalled Windows - if you don't have the recovery partition or install disks:

Contact the OEM computer manufacturer and ask them to send you an install disk for your computer - they may charge a small fee. Contact information for the manufacturer of your computer can be found here:
