    I previously used the Windows 7 Loader that activated windows in Evaluations and then removed watermark.

    However, I have used the latest Windows 7 Loader by OaH but when I checked by pressing on Windows Key + R, and then typing "winver" it says that "Evaluation copy expires on 3/1/2010.

    How can I fix it?

    If you used something for a build of Windows previous to RTM, then unfortunately you now have a frankenbuild. The best way to fix is to reload, don't install any loaders, and post a BIOS mod request or perform a NIC mod for 2.1 SLIC and use a OEM:SLP key and cert. Getting a SLIC mod is the best way to activate and not worry about corrupted files or being detected and deactivated by a windows update or service pack.

    To get a bios mod, go here: http://forums.mydigitallife.net/forumdisplay.php?f=25

    After you get a MOD, use darkfall82's Win7 UAP to install keys/certs. (Linked in my sig.)

    If you have an Intel bios that can't be opened and modified or some other that can't be modified, then click the link in my signature that references NIC PXE mods.

    I have custom built computer. My motherboard is GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3L and does not have Slic or anything like that. Unfortunately, I did use "Activate 32bit - 64bit Build 7264" by Activate win 7 by Orbit30 for my Windows 7 RTM 7600.

    You think there is no way to remove that evaluation?

    What happens if I already used a new Windows 7 loader by OaH but later I noticed that it has an Evaluation date?

    Some system files have been borked by your use of "Toolkit" first. No other loaders will work correctly until those files are replaced with the originals--and even then, things could go wrong. Fastest and easiest solution may be a fresh install and start over--then ONLY use one newer and proven loader version--assuming you still want to go the loader route.

    You sort of can, but it is safer & easier to reinstall. I see that you successfully got your BIOS modded, so you never have to use loaders again!

    I second that, although since your BIOS is modded, no loaders needed. Frankenbuilds = F A I L!!! :D

    You are best to do a fresh install of Windows 7 and then try running some loaders. Since you used the Orbit toolkit, you replaced some of your RTM files with RC files to trick it into RC activation (which expires...). Reinstall Windows and come back, it is best way to ensure that you will be able to install loaders and have them actually work as intended... ;)

    So, after reading this request for help, and then reviewing all your posts, I really need to know;

    Why would you install a modded BIOS ( http://forums.mydigitallife.net/posts/135131496 ), then clean out a previous frankenbuild due to a loader, and then re-install a loader again?

    Once you have a modded BIOS, the hard part is done, so all you need then is to execute 2 commands in a CMD prompt.

    Why would you re-install a loader when you have a modded BIOS?

    WHY?

    I'll explain to clarify my previous posts.. I first use Windows Loader 7... then I found out that I had evaluation date. AT THE SAME TIME, I was working to mod my bios. I upgraded my bios from the manufacturing to F7, and requested for the mods. However, my raid stopped working. I had to revert back to the F4 bios from manufacturer and requested for F4 mod Slic.
    Meanwhile, I was running on Windows Loader 7, and had to fix the evaluation problem. So after everything was complete. I installed the F4 Mod bios, and used the certificates.

    As confusing as it sounds, I'm now running on Windows 7 loader, with a mod bios and a certificate. lol.. hey it works.

    P.S. I'll probably remove Windows Loader 7 sooner or later. This happened because I didn't understand the idea of slic when i first researched it. So thats why I loaded the Windows 7 Loader first and then i read about the bios mod.

    Glad you fixed it!

    You did have a 'Frankenbuild'. You used an Activator for the RC build, this replaces the RTM tokens .dat & pkeyconfig.xrm with files from the RC. This is why you get the 'expiration date' of the RC build.
    All we have done is reversed this process by using the RTM tokens .dat & pkeyconfig.xrm

    I don't know if these files are the same between different versions of Win 7 or between 32bit & 64 bit.

    Opa had the procedure in The Windows Repository', but not in the first post and he uploaded the two files for another member.
