    Hi folks. Great forum. First post.

    I was able to use Daz Loader to activate W7 on a Dell Mini 9.

    I'm trying to activate W7 on a friend's HP Mini 110-1033CA without success. I get an obscure error about an error being written to the systems event log. Looking in there doesn't give a lot of information. I tried all methods available on the Daz Loader but all display the same error.

    I've updated the BIOS from F.06 to F.16 when I found a post about this. I still see the same errors.

    Has anyone successfully activated W7 on one of these machines? Please give me some guidance on what to try next.

    Thanks.

    To further clarify, I'd like to know if Windows 7 can be activated using one of these loaders or do I need to get a BIOS mod?

    So if someone has successfully activated W7 on a HP Mini 110 with one of the loaders, please let me know what you did - which loader and any special steps different from what the Repository indicates?

    If someone has successfully activated a HP Mini 110 using a BIOS mode, please let me know what you did - where did you get the BIOS, how did you apply it?

    For background, I have W7 Ultimate downloaded and verified and have used Daz's loader successfully to activate W7 on a Dell Mini 9.

    Should I post this request in the Repository thread?

    Thanks again.

    You should check if the HP Mini has an OEM partition, if it does it needs to be cleared.

    Other errors can come down to a bad boot manager, to correct it:
    * Commands are to be made from the Windows 7 disk (recovery options, command prompt).

    Thanks for the response.

    I had to look up how to remove an OEM partion but I found what I needed.

    I'll give this a try later today and let you know what happens.

    I checked in the disk management tool and diskpart and both showed only a single partition. Strangely, this was about 149Gb on a 160Gb drive so I'm not sure what HP did with my other 10Gb. So not this.

    Booted into the W7 Install USB, selected Repair and issued the commands mentioned. Rebooted and started the Loader Tool (as Administrator) and saw the familiar "An error has been logged to the systems event log". Fired up the event viewer and this is clearly the message logged (as I tried it multiple times and each time this message was added):

    That's where I stand. Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance.

    I started over. Reformatted the hard drive and rebuilt the USB stick. Install went smooth and it activated on the first try.

    Thanks MDL!

    Great to hear it worked out fine in the end. This is what I mean at times, the application can function just fine and one random Windows issue such as this can make it appear as though it's the application at fault when the truth is it's not :p

    Thanks again for reporting back, it might help out other users down the line :)

    Exactly the problem I had on my Dell Studio 1535. There was an OEM partition which interfered with the loader. Once I deleted the partition, reinstalled Windows 7, daz loader worked flawlessly.

    Thanks
