    Rather than wait for MS to tell my computer it's not genuine I though I might just return to the 30 day trial and wait for a key to come out nearer the time (i.e. not blacklistable). Any idea how you do this? Removing your product key (slmgr -upk) doesn't do it.

    I'm using the leaked Lenovo key rather than any activation hack. Probably I just need to replace it with the default install key, only I don't know what that is.

    You're probably right but I figured for the next 30 days (+ numerous rearms) what's the difference between having an activated copy and a trial copy? You never know what MS might do with WGA, they could leave the machine tagged as having been using this key in the first place. I can't be bothered with being forced to reinstall for the sake of staying "activated" till then.

    Thanks for the key.

    Just do the 2 following command:

    slmgr.vbs -upk <-- Remove the product key
    slmgr.vbs -rilc <-- Reinstall system licence

    This was the exact target of their press release: FUD, but it's certainly your choice.

    so you bios as a 2.1 slic. so you should be able to just change the key but you will still have the cert in the tokens.dat i dont know if this will have any effect on the system it should'nt but i am not shure

    Let me get this right:
    When M'soft do get around to blacklisting the key we could just run those commands and leave the bootloader in place.

    Worst case scenario, M'soft include a loader detector in their next update in which case we just wait till Hazar or Orbit 30 get around to writing an update which should be able to overwrite the old loader. right?

    p.s. does anyone know if the 'uninstall' in the new Orbit/Hazar loader would remove the loader from hazar's old fix?

    Why deactivate yourself. Just wait for a new key to leak in a week or two and you'll be fine for the rest of your life :D

    I am waiting for a new key. But what's the point keeping the compromised one I have now in the mean time? Unless you can suggest a single downside to switching back to the trial then I can't give you a single good reason not to do just that while I wait.

    Downsides: you have to activate again, you probably have to rearm, balloon notifications to register Windows etc. Just keep it this way, you can easily update the key later on. Have no fear winding up with an unusable system.

    Or I can just run a genuine trial version till a more secure key comes along (and installing the new key takes 2 seconds). Then I don't have to think about "if", regardless of how big or small your opinion of this "if" is. I really can't see a downside to this plan. Seriously, why is it so hard to get this concept through to some people?

    Is English your first language? Because you don't really seem to have understood the question. I asked how to revert to a trial version, having already decided to do that. I did not ask for your opinion, nor did I want it. This thread could have been finished in 1 or 2 replies if people like yourself didn't feel the need to put your 2 cents in.
