    Hello all ! Firstly I am sorry for this thread if i have not post in the right place and secondly I am sorry from my bad English.
    Here is my problem:
    In about two days shall i get a new Laptop HP DV7-6185US from USA and will come with an Windows 7 Home Premium x64 SP1. I need a DVD to reinstall Windows when I want with a clean install and I have downloaded a MSDN copy of Windows 7 Home Premium x64 SP1 because is a untouched version but I know that this version will not work with my key sticker (OCA) and if will work with the key i cannot activate them.
    From reading this forum i have learned that is a file named ei.cfg that i need to change Channel from Retail to OEM but I am not sure if this will work at all. Probably I need a folder called $OEM$ with some files but i am not sure.
    I need a clean DVD with only needed files to complete activation process with my key..Here is a photo with iso that i have downloaded from MSDN.
    If some of you can help me with this problem i will be very happy ! Good Day !

    When you have already download win 7 Home Premium, why bother with ei.cfg? :confused:

    Just use this.

    It will not install any crack to your machine.

    It will only activate your machine by inserting a valid OEM SLP key & installing the correct certificate that matches your BIOS.

    Neat & clean solution. :cool:

    BTW your attached screenshot is toooo tiny to be of any use! :)

    If you are particular about using your key, then it's fine.

    But your words ''...Loader will be my last try...'' seem to suggest that the loader cracks every machine it is used on. :eek:

    If this is so, you are mistaken! :(

    It first checks your BIOS for a valid OEM SLIC (SLP 2.1) which is needed to preactivate win 7.

    If it finds one, it DOES NOT crack your win 7 installation.

    It ONLY installs a matching certificate & key identical to the one that already exists on your machine.

    I have used it on more than 10 factory-fresh laptops without any problem whatsoever! :cool:

    aha..ok I understand now..I dont think that Ultimate version has enought benefits to make me to upgrade. I better remain to my "original" activation key OCA Sticker..
    Two more question:
    1. If I backup activation of my Original pre-installed Windows Home Premium x64 it will work with MSDN copy (of course Home Premium x64) because MSDN copy is "Retail" ?
    2. When I install fresh copy MSDN and ask me for key I should use the key from back of machine (OCA Sticker if I am right) or is need to use a standard 30-day key?
    Many Thanks !

    Last I checked Daz's loader would automatically, if not manually, install the key and certificate if your BIOS had matching SLIC 2.1, and not the loader bootcode itself as it's not necessary.

    If you wish to activate using CoA key (off the sticker on the PC) you cannot activate online, and must activate via phone. It should be an automated process. You give your code, they'll give you a return code.
