    Hi, I have just installed Windows 7 Ultimate from this link:

    7600.16385.090713-1255_x86fre_client_it-it_Retail_Ultimate-GRMCULFRER_IT_DVD.iso
    Ultimatex86RetailClient_IT
    0x5D1DCC9A
    0xDFCA36EEAE8728634535FF17CA202CD501C5BD10

    I know I will have 120 days to activate this Windows 7 and now I'd like to know what is the best way. I know there is this file:
    Windows.7.Loader.eXtreme.Edition.v3.118
    Is it working fine or there is a better way?
    Thanks for your news.

    I also modded my bios but in general I don't want to be responsible for any dead laptops if the user does not know what he/she is doing. That's the only reason why I recommend a loader most of the time.

    Yep, a hardmod is the "best" activation mode, but there is a chance chane of brinking your computer - and when a notebook gets bricked - your have a problem!

    This the only reason why i´m still running a loader instead of an hardmod!

    @bugmeless:

    For the saveway use a loader (daz´s one) or RemoveWAT

    The best way to activate Windows 7 permenantly is via DOS using the cert key. this is the easiest and fastest way that requires no additional software, just place your corresponding certificate in the C: drive, and run the commands.


    run cmd as admin

    slmgr -ilc C:\HP.XRM-MS
    slmgr -ipk <key>



    * Replace HP.XRM-MS with whatever certificate depending on your motherboard/ laptop type.

    This way, you will never ever hear about activation again, but ull still be Genuine ;)

    Forget this one, it will mess your computer:(, use Daz's loader instead.

    BIOS MOD is the most permanent way to activate, but it offers some risks, stick to the loader for now until you feels more daring to try the hard mod.:D

    Both Daz's Loader and Chew worked great for me.

    Used the bios mod on my Abit IP35. Seems like the best and most sure solution to me. I'm not sure why all the fear of flashing a bios, as long as someone has tested the modded bios. They are the ones going out on a limb. I was very comfortable flashing a bios, have done it many times with no problems.

    Maybe I've just been lucky, but people have been flashing bios for new features, stability, new processor support, etc....for years. Not sure why people fear doing it. Maybe I've just been lucky all these years.
