    I'm just wondering if there will ever be a way to activate Windows 7 without modding your BIOS or using a loader or activator. It's been a while since I downloaded and OS, my last one was Windows XP and I just entered in a key that I got from a notepad document in the torrent to activate it. Will there ever be a Windows 7 torrent where you just enter in a key to activate it, or will activators always be necessary? Thanks.

    Short answer: No.

    Long answer: Read Below,

    Back in the early days of Windows XP, you could get a keygen to conjure up a VLK key and you'd be on your way. Eventually Microsoft blacklisted them, and invented WGA to protect Windows Updates (and MS downloads people want/need).

    Of course Vista improved upon all this to the point where, as you said earlier, "Loaders" or "SLIC Bios Mods" were required, as no viable keygen technology was available to the masses.

    Win7 isn't much different really. You basically go Legit in one of 3 ways:

    a) Buy it
    b) Inject SLIC 2.1 into your bios, and use matching Cert+key
    c) Use a "Loader" to emulate SLIC 2.1 bios/cert+key

    From what I've read, some Vista loaders were detected, but there is one that still works as we speak. I have never used Vista in any fashion, so someone with more direct experience in that area can give a better history lesson than me. :)

    Final thoughts: There is alot of info about how to mod your own bios, along with some pre-modded bios'es, should you have a motherboard someone else has already modded here before. Moreover, there are threads where you can request help you mod your bios, so long as you provide the required information. Check out the Vista forum section, as well as some of the Stickied topics in the Win7 section here. They should answer your questions.

    If not, drop us a line again. :)

    (OP)
    Thanks for the informative post. Guess there is no point in me waiting for it to be officially released as there will be no "new" modes. Just one more question, say I use a Loader, does windows 7 never expire and if the key I entered in eventually gets blacklisted, can I reenter in a new key if they're available in the future?

    Yes, buy a legit copy of Win7 in a shop nearby.
