I made an important update, bumping the thread.
Once you have a BIOS mod in place, there is no need for a loader (all a loader does is emulate an SLIC table in the BIOS). And no, the new BIOS doesn't do anything but add the SLIC 2.1 table.
The flashing tools needed should be in the download. Just explore for yourself, it's not that hard.

I just used Windows 7 loader 1.4 by daz, which I tried before, but this time I selected the "BIOS Mod Users" option. And then it restarted and windows activated. it doesnt say anything about evaluation in winver, so this means I have permanently activated windows 7?
Why would you use a loader still?
Just open up a command prompt and use slmgr.vbs.
I believe Daz's Loader can also be used just to install the key and certificate when slic in the bios.
So that means my machine is permanantly activated? How can I check?
Open up a command prompt and type "slmgr.vbs -xpr"
So does this mean my machine is permanently activated?
How do I check?
Open a command prompt and run: slmgr -dlv
Post a screenshot and we'll tell you.
It is all in the Repository Johnny Boy
Scroll down to the section that says
and it will tell you to run the following commands.
i posted a screenshot
Seems its working.
Control panel, System and Security, System
Go there and you should also get the genuine logo on the bottom right of the screen and it should say Windows is activated on the left.
it says that but what about my screenshot? what does all that stuff mean?
3rd from last line, says licensed aka fully activated
Whats the "remaining windows rearm count"?
can anyone help me?
Thats normal too, rearm is just a way to extend your grace period. By default you get 3 and you are still on your 3rd, you don't need to worry!
Thanks for your help everyone, I think a mod can close this thread now unless someone finds some of the information useful.
I would say make an image of your computer right now as it is working but for as many time it appeared you have tried to get it to work you shouldn't have any problems in the future if you need to do it all over again.
