    I'm looking to remove the Loader installed on my machine in order to input my genuine windows key, but uninstalling from the loader software doesn't seem to work and WAT Fix is failing.

    After WAT Fix finishes the verification process, it prints a message that says something like it found corrupt files that it was unable to fix and then reboots. After the reboot I tried to use the 'sfc /scannow' command but the same message comes up at the end of the process.

    It also prints that details on this are stored on a log file called CBS.log. Is it safe to post this log file here, or is it filled with personal info?

    So how do it restore my windows installation to an unactivated mode where I can input my serial?

    Thanks for the quick reply! Few questions though:

    On the provided website for official Windows 7 ISO's, I dont see any english versions. They're all Chinese Danish and Dutch.

    And also, do I have to burn the ISO/have it extracted on a thumbdrive, or can I just have it extracted on my other partition on my Harddrive and run the setup from there?

    You're right!! My bad :(

    Yes, the guide is using the setup. The question is, does this process require a bootable setup in any way?
