Extra########################################################################### 1 - Notes##########################################################################Do you have the WAT update installed, KB971033? If yes you may have got flaggedas non-genuine, in order to become genuine again just do the following.* Launch the loader application and select to uninstall* Restart the PC* Install the loader and restart the PC* Visit the following website to revalidate Windows: www.microsoft.com/genuine/(You may need to set IE to compatibility mode!)####Is Windows failing to boot after you installed the loader? Just do thefollowing.* Boot up the PC from your Windows installation disk* Select the "Repair your computer" option* Select "Command Prompt"* Input "bootsect.exe /nt60 SYS /force" (without quotes)* Restart the PCNote: If the above doesnt fix your boot issue then use the command"bootsect.exe /nt60 ALL /force" instead. Just make sure you remove all USB flashdrives before you use the command.####If you have previously used another activation solution and have been marked asnon-genuine then you first need to uninstall the software you used or justformat and start fresh.####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@ KillDisk. This issue is caused by your locked OEM partition.http://software.lsoft.net/boot-cd-iso.zipQ. I received the error message "Failed to add loader to the boot code", what doI have to do?A. Disable any system protection. Some types of software block the loaderapplication from installing to the boot code.Q. Ive used a version of the loader before and it failed to work, what do Ihave to do?A. If you previously used bootsect to get back into Windows then you first needto press uninstall, reboot and then install the newest version of the loader.Q. Why was table sorting changed so that its now disabled by default?A. Some machines dont like the table order being changed so to make the loadermore system compatible we disabled it by default.Q. Ive previously used another activation solution and I think its modified my
  2. 2. systems files, can I fix it?A. You can first try to uninstall what you originally installed and then tryrunning "sfc.exe /scannow" from command prompt as an administrator.Q. Ive got Linux on another partition/drive, is there anything I should know?A. Use the preserve current boot code option.Q. How can I use BitLocker, TrueCrypt or another boot manager?A. First setup the software and then install the loader with the option selectedto preserve the current boot code.Q. I lose activation status after my systems been to sleep or has been inhibernation, can I fix it?A. Go to the advanced options and select to disable type 4 memory, install theloader again and see if that cures it. If youre not cured try to disable type 3memory 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 fixit?A. Go to the advanced options and select to disable type 4 memory, install theloader again and see if that cures it. If youre not cured try to disable type 3memory instead. If it still fails try selecting the legacy setting.Q. I installed the loader and rebooted but Im not activated. The loaderapplication displays the message "BAD SLIC SIZE" or "BAD SLIC DATA", can I fixit?A. Uninstall the loader, power down and then boot up the system again.
