    Hi, what are the steps I need to take to make windows think my computer is an OEM pc? Is there a guide with step by step instructions somewhere?

    I have a Gigabyte GA-P35C-DS3R motherboard.

    Thanks

    Easy answer - use a loader - Daz's is popular with a good support thread.

    Slightly more complicated - modify your BIOS with an SLIC table, install Windows 7 without inputting a key during install and activate by installing a digital certificate and key using either a loader to do this or reading up on the two simple commands on these forums - a step by step guide is here http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/7126-The-Official-Windows-7-Repository

    Expensive option - buy a licence from M$
