    I know this has been answered a lot of times but I never found an answer that specifically suited me... So here it goes.

    I am merely hours away from building a new PC which will have the AsRock z87 Extreme4 mobo. I want to install Windows 7 Ultimate on a 128gb SSD but at the same moment, keep the UEFI (it apparently makes it easier to Overclock). Apparently, Daz loader does not work for UEFI and only supports legacy boots, but that would require disabling the UEFI, which I want to easily navigate around BIOS.

    Is there an easy way to do this? I am going to boot the OS from an USB and am using the Windows USB Download tool to get my Ultimate on it. I have heard of SLICes and whatnot, but am unaware if these methods are safe?

    Thanks!

    You can try windows 7 enterprise and use MTK 2.4.9 to KMS activate. Use autokms and your OS will remain activated forever.

    AFAIK, Enterprise is in reality the same as Ultimate, why wouldn't this method work with Ultimate?

    So it's not a permanent Activator unless I use autokms? Is this method safe?

    This works on AsRock mobos as well? Does the fact that it boots from the SLIC rather than the SSD slow down the booting up time (I'm assuming not, but I am a newbie to this?

    I assume the files I should download to use this "SLIC" are the ones at the bottom of the original post. Or is there an updated version?

    I believe all you need to do is have the drive where you installed windows seven to be in MBR format. Then it should just work. Like it did for me, but I used a gigabyte motherboard. When you first format your drive you should have the option to format to MBR

    Does your comment about using Dell SLIC 2.2 also applies to the OP's needs? Thanks.

    Ultimate cannot be activated through KMS. Enterprise can.

    Yep, you can activate Windows 7 with SLIC 2.2.

    after that from the Bios boot sequence choose to boot from the dvd witch has not the uefi in front but legacy or what so ever. It worked on my Asus board and I stil use uefi mode afterwards. Maybe have a look over here:
