    I did a reckless activation of RTMx64 before I found this site. Basically I tried 5 different loaders/hacks before I got one to work. I dont even remember which one worked and I didn't uninstall any of the others, just kept downloading and trying till I found one that worked. This was a month ago and I do remember that the Orbit-Hazard didn't work.

    Is there any way to determine if I have a hack or a loader ? I ran CMD as administrator and looking at my C: drive I dont see GRLDR ?

    GRLDR has the 'hidden' and 'system' attributes so you wont see it unless you enable show 'hidden system files' in explorer.

    grldr is Grub Loader ( grub4dos ) and is used by most of the loaders around here.

    Question was Where is GRLDR, if not on C:\ drive, it probably on hidden system partition, try this.

    Run > diskmgmt.msc

    Look for "System Reserved" and assign it a drive letter. If you have a loader it will be there.

    since I did the Orbit and Hazard which didn't work, I assume it is possible I still have a hacked Windows even if the GRLDR is on the hidden partition?

    Seems there is no definate means to determine how my Win7 is activated?

    So my guess is you have a working loader, did you manage to assign a drive letter to your hidden partition ?

    I didn't, and it doesn't show up as existing under my computer. Should I assign it a letter?
