do you mean the start menu ?

Yes I´d like change the Windows Metro GUI in the Windows 7 GUI because i miss the start menu. When I change the Registry key (“HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer = RDEnabled) I get the start menu but lose the Ribbon UI from the Windows Explorer. But I won´t lose the Ribbon UI

Basically, you want Windows Developer Preview with all its features just except the start menu.
This cannot be done as of now.

Yeah, because that tweakpack is for Windows 8 Developer Preview and not Windows 7.
