    So I downloaded the win7 ultimate x64 iso (non OEM, what is the difference btw?) which is roughly 3 GB in size, I don't understand "to install the other available sku's, delete the ei.cfg" part, please explain what to do next. download the latest update-pack - update the iso - roofus - install?
    how about activation? I hear about things like KMS and windows loader, what are they and which is cleaner and simpler? thanks in advance, I make this install on a custom assembled desktop.

    When I installed mine I used Windows Loader for activation. Works every time. Best one to use for Win 7

    Remove ei.cfg from the iso to be able to install any win7 edition. If you want to install win7 ultimate, remove ei.cfg file is not needed.
    For the activation, make sure to disable UEFI in the bios and to enable Legacy/bios to be able to use daz for the activation.
    For simplix, it is useful in case you want to integrate updates into the iso.

    There is no difference in oem or not, only the oem ei.cfg sets it to the oem channel.
    Format the USB key NTFS and extract the iso to it and it only will be able to do legacy bios installs. CSM needs to be enabled.

    If you want uefi/gpt install you have to install either Pro (or Enterprise) and you can use KMS_VL_ALL by @abbodi1406 to activate.

    For DAZ Windows Loader to be able to activate on uefi/gpt you need a modified bios with slic added but on Bios/mbr installs it will work without any modification.
