When I setup windows 8, windows 8 pro I must type produckey to continuting setup. In order to bypass Producy key I created UNATTEND.XML file. But I get a problem when use UNATTEND.XML. The installation is not allowed choose edition to setup. There is a method to bypass produckey without UNATTEND.XML needed. It's put EI.CFG file to sources folder on the ISO and I did succeeded when setup from DVD. But when I setup windows 8 from usb with custom installation media and I put EI.CFG file to there, seem EI.CFG file wasn't configured, I must type product key to setup windows 8.

Edition Configuration File (EI.cfg)
The edition configuration file (EI.cfg) determines what edition of Windows to install and what license to use during Windows Setup. If you are using an answer file to configure an unattended setup, use the ProductKey or MetaData components to automate the edition selection screen of Windows Setup. For more information, see Work with Product Keys and Activation. The EI.cfg file replaces PID.txt and is located on the product media under the \sources folder. If you are creating custom installation media—for example, recovery media—make sure the settings in your EI.cfg file match the installation sources
How to settings in my EI.cfg file match the installation sources, if my custom installation media named "W832"?
