    Or, should I say, the certificates and what not get blocked by MS?

    The total procedure to block all data provided by MS to OEM manufacturers must be changed on all machines sold to customers or to dealers. Imagine this and then you find your own answer. If the masterkey leaked this summer is blacklisted, you simply enter new one. If there were an update for the oem certificate and the product key, all real customers should make changes to their computers to continue running a genuine os. Imagine this! Absolutely unpractical. So keep on staying on a safe side with a modded bios.

    Yes they can..but IMHO they won't...the biosmods will stay safe.

    If they block something, they will go after the loaders first. I guess that will happen soon.

    Then at bios they could disable a special mod method...they cannot block all mods at once. The dynamic methods will stay for sure.

    If they block loaders like they did in vista then people who use a loader are safe :D

    They have so far found no reliable method, but now they represent 4000 new employees, including working 1000+x on this WAT thing, wait until something comes out? Michel has Presslink of Information, is
    directly from Microsoft: Lisa Brummel.

    Daz's new Loader v1.73 almost impossible to find for microsoft.

    More as waiting, we can not do.

    A loader, almost impossible to detect?
    LOL!
    Have you ever seen a official SLIC stored on a HDD?
    It would be so easy to validate the HDD, detect and remove the loader.

    You cant. The closest will probably be an ISA mod.

    Dont worry about the blocking...its simple paranoia.

    I guess they have run out of things to worry about...:eek::p:D

    I dont think they will block bios mod, why? because:
    1-They will spend a lot of money...
    2-There is only a minority of people who activates using the bios mod method.

    I dare say if biosmod no longer works, daz loader version >=1.73 still run properly. Hung-Kwan and Chen are of the same opinion as Yen, am really very curious. :)

    Well I would say that the bios-mod lasts longer than the loader...
