    Hi,

    I have a Win7 ISO with me which is "Not Activated".

    Now I do have the Daz Loader (Thank you @Daz ), but I want help as to how to Pre-Activate my ISO.

    The ISO has about 10-13 Editions (Starter, Home, Professional, Ultimate, Enterprise) and both in x86 and x64.

    Hope someone can help me on the same. Thanks.

    Just read the included readme.txt inside the loader download folder, it has an example setupcomplete.cmd already made for you ;)

    Actually I did as per the readme.txt (added the loader files to \sources\$OEM$\$$\SETUP\SCRIPTS), removed "EI.cfg" file, but even then the "Please enter Key" window pops-up after we click on "Install Now" button :-(

    Just press skip or something like it.

    Edit, windows 7 SP1 doesn't ask for a key during initial setup, ei.cfg removed.

    Actually @Enthousiast , after I restarted the VM, the Key is not being asked anywhere at startup, but now only Win7 Professional x86, x64 editions are being shown and not others. Dont know why though.

    Edit: I did a VM restart again, now the Key is being asked at startup (no EI.cfg file in the ISO).

    You're playing with someone elses homebrew iso, why don't you just download a clean msdn windows 7 SP1 iso, put the loader stuff in and delete the ei.cfg.

    One more thing @Enthousiast , actually is there any good ISOs out there which are Pre-Activated, x86 & x64, have all editions of Win_7 on it?? I know that many groups have released such, but I wanted to have a reliable one, which doesn't have any malicious code (keyloggers, viruses etc) streamlined into the installers. Thank you.

    I did not find any good ones except murphy78 releases, all others are homebrew of the worst kind, imho.

    I rather create them myself.

    Thanks for the info buddy. But I am not well versed in merging multiple ISOs into a single ISO and then using the Loader to create an Unattended Win7 Installation.
