    If W7 is already installed and activated then you must upgrade first to W10 and you'll be activated without using any key. Then after if you make a fresh installtion of w10 it will be still activated. That's how people are doing at the moment :)

    Easy workaround:
    1. do a clean install of Windows 7
    2. install your drivers
    3. use DAZ Loader to activate
    4. upgrade (not clean install) to Windows 10
    5. should be auto-activate

    Now, after the upgrade to W10 were successfully, you could do an clean install!

    Remind you: if setup ask you for any Product Key, skip, DO NOT intake any P-Key. W 10 should be auto-activate with no problems.

    No need for drivers!!!!
    With just one exception: ethernet or wifi network adapters drivers if Windows 7 don't install its own generic ones.

    Win10 Activation HWID is made from each piece of hardware relevant to conform it. Every piece of hardware has its own specific hardware id, e.g. PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0A65&SUBSYS_848E1043&REV_A2So no need for drivers, drivers could change version and provider, for instance those generic ones from M$ and those from the vendor or maker.

    Btw and fyg, every time you use exclamation marks (!) it means in English or Spanish, don't know other languages, that you are SCREAMING, at least rising your voice level from normal. I'm telling this to you when saw you post "Misunderstandings" asking to Tito.

    Mr.X He need at least one driver in windows 7 prior upgrading to 10... Lan or Wifi, otherwise no activation after a clean install due no internet connection. Or I'm wrong? :31:

    Don't be it's not the 6700, and haswell beats both the broadwell and skylake, the only reason for the 1151 is for two or three M2's to run RAID or a 3.1 USB, besides that, nothing better.

    All he has to do is do it all over again as he already did it with the old hardware starting with 7.

    Unless for the IGPU, but who uses a IGPU on a desktop. LOL

    I'd skip STEP 3 and obtain a legitimate key instead.

    Loaders are never guaranteed for software activation.

    Of course Ethernet or WiFi network adapter for Internet connectivity (mandatory for Windows 10 activation). If Windows 7 happens to install with its generic drivers an ethernet adapter then no need for specific vendor's driver otherwise yes you need to install a driver.
    But that's it. No more drivers whatsoever.

    :eek:

    You obviously don't know how OEM activation in Vista or W7 works or that Daz is a respected of this community...

    No. An internet connection is not needed during the Windows 7 phase.

    Haven't tested what you say, however it makes sense due Windows 10 installers is the one which really needs the Internet connection during or at the end of installation.
