    Hi,

    While I wait for MS to release Win7 on the Microsoft Developer Network Academic Alliance I would like to give it a try. Should be coming in October but i want to give it a try now... hehe you know how it is. Boys like to play with toys. :p

    However i have a couple of doubts regarding using the activator. Looks like the SLIC table has to be modified. However i remember reading here that it's possible to have an emulated OEM loader for Vista that does not modify the BIOS (http://www.mydigitallife.net/2007/0...n-crack-vstaldr-without-modify-or-flash-bios/ ) it simply gets loaded at boot time and emulates a SLIC 2.0 OEM BIOS. Is this the case with any of the Win7 Loaders? Hazard and Orbit30?

    It's not like it's a big deal to flash the BIOS, specially on a dual-bios board. But i would like to keep this system clean for a legit copy of Win7. I opened the bat file from Hazard so i have an idea of what it's doing (looking at the cert it looks like a Vista OEM certificate, but i have no experience to confirm this). I am not familiar with this sort of "Hack", so i would like to know if a BIOS emulated solution is available or not. If not i guess i will just Flash my BIOS when MS releases Win7 on the MDNAA

    Cheers, TIA!

    The Hazar loader emulates the SLIC table. Use that.

    Cool Thanks. I figured as much due to the grub loader being there, but i wanted to confirm that it wasn't just used to load a BIOS patch and then reboot the system.

    Thanks Win7 plus Switcher 2.0 (for expose functionality) is actually quite a nice system! Good job so far MS! Now Visual Studio 2010 with C# 4.0 and the new dot net 4.0 platform should be a very nice system to develop on.
