    My computer shuts down every hours at the 29 minute mark. 6:29, 8:29, 10:29. This only started yesterday.

    What happened was I did something that messed up the boot.bcd and had to use W7 DVD to fix it. It fixed it, and then after my computer started, Microsoft decided to finally tell me I don't have a genuine version, after my OEM hacking thing from W7 Toolkit 1.8 had been working since like December. I tried to do it again but had no luck and decided to use Chew-WGA. And now it's like this, with a final expiration date of June 1st.

    Please help me :(

    It said it found corrupt files but was not able to fix them all, and I can't even open the log file. Should I go ahead and flash my BIOS with a SLIC 2.1 mod? I asked on the request thread if it's a 32-bit version of it, becuause the one I downloaded is "E757_64.ISO/BIN", while the one uploaded is E75759.BIN. I really don't wanna kill my motherboard.

    Have you tried restoring the tokens in the repository Section 6-I

    I. My Windows shows an expiration date and/or says that key is invalid
    If you get this on the final RTM of Windows 7, this is because you have used Toolkit 1.8 from Orbit or because you have installed a modified version of Windows 7 (e.g. Wzor modified version). It replaced some system files with files from the RC, which was designed to expire on March/June 2010. This can be fixed by making Windows reinitialize those files. To do so you can use the "Repair activation" feature from Hazar's activator, or do it manually if you wish:
    Restore original tokens
    Type cmd in Start menu.
    Right-click on the first result (cmd.exe) and click on Run as administrator (confirm by clicking Yes if required).
    Type
    Code:
    slmgr -rilc
    Code:
    net stop sppsvc
    Code:
    cd %windir%\ServiceProfiles\NetworkService\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\SoftwareProtectionPlatform
    Code:
    rename tokens.dat tokens.bar
    Code:
    cd %windir%\system32
    Code:
    net start sppsvc
    Press ENTER after each command.
    Restart your computer 2 times.

    Otherwise just reinstall new RTM then use daz loader RC6 or you can try ODIN or my program http://forums.mydigitallife.net/thr...s-7-forever-without-cracks-patches-or-loaders

    You said you installed the Toolkit 1.8, is that right? If so that is why, that toolkit was designed for the beta/rc1 versions. It replaces the file "Tokens.dat" file and the one it puts in is from the RC version thereby inserting a timebomb that will act like the RC. The only way around this is either a clean install or some sort of toolkit 1.8 fix tool. I know secr8tos knows quite a bit about that toolkit. Maybe asking him will help you more. But basically the toolkit inserts the RC timebomb and will make any copy act like the RC in that way. I would recommend what timesurfer said though, download hazar's 7loader 1.6.1d and use the "Repair Activation" option to get it working again. I don't think you have to reinstall.

    (OP)
    I almost just killed my Windows by doing this. Upon reboot, it told me that I didn't have authorization or some crap to change files and that I had to re-install 7 or restore it. Thankfully I had a restore point from today.

    It's "fixed" I guess. When I do slmgr -dlv it no longer has "6/1/2010 7:59:59 PM" and stuff, and apparently I'm activated. I'm just waiting to see now if it's gonna keep turning off every 2 hours.

    I can't wait to get the money I need and just but this POS already. I always get effed over by Microsoft products lol

    UPDATE: I went ahead and used that loader (1.6.1) and got the OEM SLP channel back and DLI/DLV both say "Licensed", while XPR says "Permanently Activated", but the System window says "This copy of Windows is not activated. Click here to activate now." Clicking it does nothing.

    Wait what?

    And what do I do about system window? It's telling me that it's not activated but slmgr says it is. Which one should I believe?

    Ok, that is good dude. It will not do the bi-hourly shutdowns either anymore. That was just because of the RC1 tokens file that the toolkit 1.8 installed for you. I would bet that if you ran WinVER on your computer prior to repairing it would say "Expiration Date: 6/1/2010"

    No, but WGA tells me it's genuine. Isn't it because I used Chew-WGA and killed it? How do I bring it back?

    If I were you I'd backup, format and clean install.

    From what I can gather you have hacked your system so much - Rc frankenbuild, ChewWGA, loaders??? ... - a recipe for future troubles.
