    I did a complete uninstall of Win 8 and went back to Win7 on a HP laptop.I tried to activate using loader 2.2 but it keeps telling me it kept telling me I had an unsupported partition.Can anyone give me some advice on how to get rid of this.I'm running win7 pro 30 day trial @ the moment :( HP did have win7 drivers for this computer on their site.

    You have a GPT partition and the loader doesn't work on it.

    I wiped all partitions and it saved 100mb partition when I did the installation.

    Sorry to repeat the same thing, this message is triggered when you're using the loader on a GPT partition. Use diskpart in command prompt as admin and list disk you'll see the GPT. :)

    Running Win 7 Pro - so you can activate with MTK and not worry about the partition type
