    Hello Im pretty new to MDL but I have searched around the internet and this site but have not found anything helpful yet.

    I have a built my own PC. I am trying to figure out how to activate Windows 7.
    Windows is installed on a GPT disk. Standard tools like Windows Loader do not work. How do I go about activating Windows 7? I do not want to format my disk as MBR because my hard drive is 3TB.

    Processor: AMD FX-6200
    Motherboard: ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0
    Hard Drive: 3TB Western Digital
    RAM: 24GB

    Find a bios for your motherboard that someone has added Slic 2.1 Marker into.
    You can then install the oem product key & matching certificate.
    ie, bios has asus 2.1 slic, win7 pro has asus oem key, you install matching certificate.

    or

    Once you have flashed your motherboard with bios + slic, run windows loader. Windows loader will see the slic, install correct key & certificate for you...

    Thank you Mr X and Flipp3r

    Flipp3r, I was unable to find a BIOS file for my motherboard with added SLIC 2.1 Marker. This method seems pretty complicated. What do I do now?

    Mr. X, that tool WindSLIC worked and Windows Activated. However, it added a program in my startup. Is that program really required?

    Sorry, what program you're talking about?
    Either way, please restart your PC again and see if that programs runs again.
