Extra ########################################################################## # 1 - Recovery ########################################################################## Is Windows failing to boot after you installed the loader? Just do the following. * Boot up the PC from your Windows installation disk * Press and hold SHIFT and then press F10 * Input "bootsect.exe /nt60 SYS /force" (without quotes) * Restart the PC Note: If the above doesn't fix your boot issue then use the command "bootsect.exe /nt60 ALL /force" instead. Just make sure you remove all USB flash drives before you use the command. Alternatively try holding the 'R' key after your BIOS screen. If you time it right then you'll see a boot menu. From the menu select to boot without a SLIC. ########################################################################## # 2 - Genuine status ########################################################################## Have you installed the loader but you're not genuine? Just check the following. * Check the details line contains "v2.1" or "v2.2" * Try to validate online with Internet Explorer at http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/validate/ Note: If the details line doesn't read v2.1 or v2.2 then go to the advanced tab, select to disable type 4 memory and reinstall the loader. If that doesn't work then use the legacy mode instead. ########################################################################## # 3 - Questions and answers ########################################################################## Q. The loaders status says "Modified - Uninstall other cracks", what do I do? A. You can either find a way to uninstall the other cracks, download WAT Fix or format. http://forums.mydigitallife.info/threads/26994 Q. I installed the loader and I'm still not activated, so what do I do now? A. Go to the loaders advanced options tab and select to either either disable type 4 memory or use the legacy mode, then press install and reboot when prompted. You may also need to select the option to ignore the systems existing SLIC and/or revalidate online. Q. The loaders status says "Unsupported partition table", why is this? A. You're either using GPT on a UEFI motherboard or you've got a locked OEM partition. Both problems can be fixed by fully formatting your entire hard drive.
  • 2. Q. I received the error message "Error finding your systems active partition", what do I have to do? A. You need to format the whole hard drive with a program like Active@ Kill Disk. This issue is caused by your locked OEM partition. http://software.lsoft.net/boot-cd-iso.zip Q. I received the error message "Failed to add loader to the boot code", what do I have to do? A. Disable any system protection. Some types of software block the loader application from installing to the boot code. Q. I've used a version of the loader before and it failed to work, what do I have to do? A. If you previously used bootsect to get back into Windows then you first need to press uninstall, reboot and then install the newest version of the loader. Q. I've previously used another activation solution and I think it's modified my systems files, can I fix it? A. You can first try to uninstall what you originally installed and then try running "sfc.exe /scannow" from command prompt as an administrator. Q. I lose activation status after my systems been to sleep or has been in hibernation, can I fix it? A. Go to the advanced options and select to disable type 4 memory, install the loader again and see if that cures it. If you're not cured try to disable type 3 memory instead. If it still fails try selecting the legacy setting. Q. I installed the loader and my system hangs during the boot process, can I fix it? A. Go to the advanced options and select to disable type 4 memory, install the loader again and see if that cures it. If you're not cured try to disable type 3 memory instead. If it still fails try selecting the legacy setting. Q. I installed the loader and rebooted but I'm not activated. The loader application displays the message "BAD SLIC SIZE" or "BAD SLIC DATA", can I fix it? A. Uninstall the loader, power down and then boot up the system again. Go to the applications advanced options and select to ignore the existing SLIC and then press install and reboot when prompted. Q. My systems UEFI, but I've formatted the drive to use MBR and I'm still not activated. What do I do? A. Check your UEFI menu for secure boot and make sure it's disabled. ########################################################################## # 4 - UEFI motherboards ########################################################################## The loader doesn't work when the systems using GPT. The workaround is to pre- format your hard drive so that it uses MBR instead. From your BIOS select to boot the Windows DVD without UEFI, press and hold SHIFT and then press F10 and then enter this: diskpart list disk select disk 0 clean convert mbr create partition primary select partition 1 format fs=ntfs quick
  • 3. Boot the Windows DVD the same way you did the first time and then continue with the installation of Windows. Once complete you can then install the loader. ########################################################################## # 5 - Server 2012 compatibility and Windows 8 ########################################################################## Starting with the Server 2012 range Microsoft requires the RSDP to be in read only memory. Because of this there are limitations. * Systems with an existing SLIC in their BIOS should have success * Systems with an Intel CPU may have success due to chipset lock picking * Systems with an AMD CPU may struggle to gain activation status if they don't have an existing SLIC in their BIOS * If the loaders details line contains "v2.2" but your systems not activated then your systems probably not compatible ====== To convert Windows Server 2012 from an evaluation edition you must use the following command: DISM /online /Set-Edition:<edition ID> /ProductKey:XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX /AcceptEula Here's two examples: DISM /online /Set-Edition:ServerDatacenter /ProductKey:B7RRX-RVN4P-PCPBM-89D8Y- X4PQH /AcceptEula DISM /online /Set-Edition:ServerStandard /ProductKey:VDNYM-JBKJ7-DC4X9-BT3QR- JHRGY /AcceptEula Your system may then need to reboot 2 times before the loader will work. ====== Windows 8 support may never be added to the loader because the activation system has changed. It wouldn't be safe for me to include what are basically retail keys as they can be blocked. * OA 2.0 keys can be shared * OA 2.1 keys can be shared * OA 2.2 keys can be shared * OA 3.0 keys can't be shared (This is what Windows 8 uses) I'll make one thing clear too. There are no activators for Windows 8. Anything that modifies files inside of the Windows directory is considered hacktivation, not activation. You're NOT safe and it's NOT permanent. If you simply want your OS to look like Windows 8 then I'd suggest you try Windows Server 2012. http://www.win2012workstation.com/ http://www.win2008workstation.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=54&t=2108 http://www.win2008workstation.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=56&t=2172&start=14 ########################################################################## # 6 - Checksums ########################################################################## File : Windows Loader.exe CRC-32 : adf01c0f

In each folder put the files you want to add support for, just be sure you label the files like this: *Certificates folder* Acer.XRM-MS Advent.XRM-MS Alienware.XRM-MS Asus.XRM-MS *SLICs folder* Acer.BIN Advent.BIN Alienware.BIN Asus.BIN When using external files all preset internals will be ignored. This is a cleaner approach for users who want to build their own list without my presets getting in the way. Special thanks: BobSheep, zsmin & Woota!? Thanks: Everyone who supports this project, you're all the reason I'm still working on it.
