    I have acer reovery cds for my laptop but I never use them, instead I have been using a copy of Windows 7 to get a clean bloatfree install, the only problem I always have to call over the phone to activate the copy and personally since I bought this thing I'd rather use the version on the recovery cds, one big problem to much damm bloat.

    Is there a way, or someone has created an app to streamline hack recovery cds to just extract Windows and the drivers?

    THANKS

    Install 7, use daz's loader in advanced mode and insert just the key and cert for acer. You won't be using the boot loader portion since you have a valid slic 2.1 in your bios.

    Or you can create a 7 iso with the acer cert and key inserted (using jinje's dism tool)

    Well the thing is I don't need to use the loader, Hazar pointed out that coa versions have to call in over the phone to activate.

    So really at this point in time all I'd like is to make sure I can find a genuine copy of Win 7 Home Premium to use so I can use my coa key I already have, so I don't have to use those damm recovery cds.

    I have a copy I found on the newsgroups posted by Wallymc, anyone know if those are genuine untouched versions?

    Oh you have to mod the bios for this? If so that's ok, I'll just call in over the phone to activate it, I have a legit key and all I wanted to make sure was that I could find a legit copy of Win 7...

    THANKS

    P.S. I'm downloading the Professional x64 iso off of digitalriver. By the way should I be worried and check the md5 on this?

    No No DasFox, since you have a new computer I suppose it already has SLIC 2.1 in it, so you can OEM activate using the methods described in this forum. Mods are needed only when the bios doesnt have SLIC 2.1 as in older machines. And ya, the digital river iso is fine, dont worry.

    Ok, well if I have a legit iso and a legit coa key, then why would I really want to bother putting in the cert?

    Also, I understand a bit about Certs, I think, are these real certs from the manufactures, what's the deal with these?

    THANKS

    You don't really have to, you can activate with your key if that is what you prefer to do. Or you can install the OEM key and install the cert and be activated already. You can also install Ultimate or another version that the key won't activate.

    Are these actual certificates from the vendors or something hacked to emulate them?

    Would someone please explain a bit about these certs or point to somewhere in the forum that does?

    THANKS


    P.S. If I used the Acer cert I wouldn't be able to use my acer oem key?

    OEM vendors like acer, dell, hp etc. sell large nos. of computers with preinsalled, preactivated OS. The OEM activation scheme (i.e. SLIC + cert+key) lets these big guys save themselves the headache of activating individual machines. All these certs have been extracted from such computers, they are from the vendors, nothing hacked or emulated about them.
    If you use the acer cert, you'll need to use the acer OEM key (available) on this forum. That key is common to all acer computers that came with win7 preactivated. You wont be able to use your COA (sticker) key. And you will be validated genuine.

    Just use opa tool http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/7126-The-Official-Windows-7-Repository?p=149816#post149816
    to insert key and cert since you have the bios slic 2.1. You need cert to match up with model type like hp or dell, etc...
    The key has to match up with version of windows 7 like ultimate, Pro, etc...

    I don't get this, if that's Acer's actual cert then why can't I use my oem key, why won't it match? To me that doesn't make sense...

    Thanks guys for the info and replies...

    As your laptop is a new one it 99% has a SLIC 2.1 table in its bios. The OEM computers as the one you bought are sold pre-activated using a OEM:SLP key. The key on the sticker(the one with the hologram) is a COA key and most probably it is not the one that your laptop had installed when you bought it. The reason you have to call MS is that Microsoft has disabled online activation for COA Keys that are attached to computers, BUT the laptop came with a OEM:SLP installation (System Locked Pre-installation) Differences Between OEM Channel SLP, NONSLP and COA License Product Keys.
    So again you do not need to call MS again for phone activating a COA installation which is when using a COA product key. Just install a fresh Windows 7 Home Premium or whatever the case and run start->cmd(run as administrator) and enter

    slmgr -ipk <ACER PRODUCT KEY> - Get it from HERE

    slmgr -ilc <path of the Acer certificate>\Acer.XRM-MS - get it from HERE

    I hope it helps.

    p.s. You can install w7 using the recovery disc and backup the product key. It will be a OEM:SLP key most likely. Use SLIC DUMP ToolKit by DavidXXW to backup the product key. It will show you if you have SLIC 2.1 added to the bios or not.

    Ahhh I didn't realize they'd use a different key for the install.

    When I see the 'PKey' section I can just write that key down and use that, or if I just click 'Backup' that will backup my key and cert?

    THANKS
