Use the program CustomizerGod, made by door2windows. It lets you customize the icons and branding in Windows 7 and above, including the classic start button flag. (requires you to open shellbrd.dll in it though)

Extract the iso and boot code. Use gimagex to mount the install.wim with read/write to a folder. Mod away. Unmount the win with commit changes ticked.

If you have a multi-sku iso, you'll have to look in the wim xml woth 7z or something to figure out which win index has the sku you want to install and mount that one to modify.

Then rebuild the iso with the extracted bootcode and modified install.wim.
