    Well just as the title says it.
    I have a home built computer (not OEM)

    Can I still use Daz's loader? I've tried to use the SLIC toolkit to see if I have SLIC 2.1, but it fails miserably.

    Otherwise I'll just use RemoveWAT

    I've got a home built PC, Abit IP35 mobo. I flashed the bios with a modded one (HP OEM), loaded a untouched MSDN Win7 Ultimate 64, and followed the directions on the Windows 7 Repository thread.

    Now my "OEM HP" computer is activated, genuine, and updates and runs great. Easy with the help of all the tutorials here.

    I don't have a floppy, and the hardest part of the whole process was figuring out how to make my PC boot from a USB stick. All the instructions of how to make a bootable USB stick are here, but I had to figure out the in's and out's of making my bios boot from it myself. I had boot from a USB floppy as first boot device, and USB LS/Zip as second, with the SATA CD ROM third, and it would still boot from the HD. Eventually I just disabled the SATA controller in the bios and it had no choice but to boot from the USB stick. From there, flashing was a breeze.
