hi all! I love this forum and this is my first post. Special thanks to everyone ... by lurking I have been able to learn how to mod bios and activate W7... even when I screwed up and downloaded the WAT and got the horror... i was able to figure out how to activate again by reading several posts. NOW.... I just got the watermark (above the clock)... then i went to "System" in control panel and it said I am Activated and "genuine"... then the watermark disappeared. Anyone else seen this? Is it baaaad??? thanks -kafka!
