    I have successfully added my "cert"-files to my win7 CD, but i just want to know 1 more thing...The "Product-Key"...Where do you have to inject it so Windows starts "Activated"? I opened the "UNATTEND.XML" file and saw 2 keys in there, bur obviously it would be for 2 diff EDITIONS i presume...Is there a way to "inject" additional keys for other "outstanding" Editions?

    PS: When using Windows Loader, the PC Activates 100%

    You mention UNATTEND.XML is this on the dvd i,e, the all in one you have, you cannot add more that one key if using AutoUnattend.xml you say you have added cert file explain exactly what you have done because I still don't understand why adding $oem$ folder from Windows 7 DVD (Multi-Brand-Multi-Edition) Activation did not work for you.

    Yes Urie..i took it out (AutoUnattend.xml)...dunno why i had it in there as my "original cracked" DVD didnt have it in...i mustve made a boo-boo there. I took it out, now i only got the following directories --->
    ---$oem$ (dir)
    ---$$ (sub-dir of oem)
    ---setup (subdir of $$-dir)
    ---scripts (sub-dir of setup --->"bin" (dir), "Certificates" (dir) with 2 files ( under scripts-dir ) "install.vbs" and "SetupComplete.cmd
    ...hopefully it will work now....Tell me...The "Certificates"...has it got the "key(s)" embeded?

    Completely remove the original $oem$ folder and replace it with the one from Windows 7 DVD (Multi-Brand-Multi-Edition) Activation.

    P.S. personally I would not use a downloaded cracked version you can make your own WinAIO-Maker-Professional-The-All-in-One-Windows-Setup-Solution using latest sp1 media refresh images available from direct digital river links on this forum.

    you can find it here Windows 7 DVD [Multi-Brand|Multi-Edition] Activation scroll down to (BACKUP Link #1)

    when you extract the Windows 7 DVD (Multi-Brand-Multi-Edition) Activation.7z file you will find other archives i,e, AIO-Win7-DVD-Activation-[2.1bios-only]v1.10.7z, AIO-Win7-DVD-Activation-[incl.Daz_Loader v2.1]v2.10.7z and Autounattend.7z if you are installing on computers that have slic 2.1 the use the one without the loader.
