    I have a new computer and I have installed windows 7 home premium 64 bits. My motherboard is only compatible with GPT partitions, I tried the activation of the daz loader and the partition is not compatible. Therefore this system cannot use it. can someone explain to me in detail (I am not very expert) how to obtain a digital license of windows 10 home by updating from windows 7, 8 or 8.1 home or failing that, another system that is currently valid. Thank you.

    The procedure in the OP still works perfectly, thanks!! Just revived and upgraded an old Pentium 4 machine with 1.5 GB RAM from WinXP 64-bit to Win10 Pro 32-bit. Installed Win7 Ultimate over the OEM WinXP, activated Win7 with Daz Win Loader, and then fresh-installed Win10 (v1909 ISO from MCT) using the Genuine XML method as stated in OP--now activated with a digital license without any problem or difficulty. Fortunately, no incompatible driver issues so far... everything working for now.

    So it's best to go the:

    Win 7 - >Activate with Daz Loader -> Upgrade to Win10 route rather than using KMSpico?

    Im going to lose support for Windows 7 soon and im worried, I need to think what im going to do.

    Yes, KMSpico activated win 7 Pro will need an extra step, a real upgrade to 10586/1511 first.

    This thread is meant for people who don't want to or cannot upgrade to 10 and still get a free HWID.

    Thanks. However im still worried I catch a virus in the process. Is everything open source? How do I trust it?

    Also, wouldn't it be easier to activate Win 7 with Daz Loader, extract the key, and just apply this key in Windows 10?

    What process? The gatherosstate.exe is from the windows iso itself, it does the same what a full upgrade does.

    Keys, used for SLIC activation (which is emulated by DAZ Loader) uses oem:slp keys, combined with a certificate, oem:slp keys cannot activate anything itself.

    Oh I get it. Now I just need to find the ISO I used to install Windows 7 Pro back in the day, because im buying a new computer, and I will need to install Win 7 Pro. Do you know where to get the ISO from a legit site? the spanish x64 one. I cant believe I deleted my OS ISO folder where I had all the ISOs...
