    I have everything in placeto flash my bios but there is one problem

    I have everything in place to flash my bios (Hp dv5) but presently I have Daz's loader installed. I know I must uninstall the loader before I do any flashing. Do I need to reboot after I uninstall the loader, and if so will the system lock me out or still allow me in and give the chance to flash? I want to know exactly what to expect I don't want to be caught off-guard by any surprises. I would appreciate a set of instructions that will allow me to uninstall the loader and to flash with out losing the present state of my files and documents.

    Thank you.

    Well, uninstall the loader, reboot and u get either XX days remaining to activate or ur copy of windows isn't genuine etc.... [depending on the date, when u installed Windows 7]

    Then prepare ur flash drive for bios flashing, plug it in, reboot, boot into flash drive and re-flash the bios....

    Again after restarting, u will get the same Windows desktop. Then open DAZ's loader and press Install. It will automatically install the matching cert and key and u will be activated!!!

    So I take that my files, documents and settings will not be affected.

    If u do a bios update, then they will be safe. Because, the worst case is to brick ur mobo but hdd willn't be affected.... :p
