    as per subject,

    I am wondering whether anyone tried running Windows 7 X64 Ultimate under GPT partitioning?

    if there is, how do you activate your windows?

    I tried windows toolkit 2.5, tried windows loader, none of it works.

    any help or advice offered will be appreciated..

    KMS activation will work for UEFI, but only the Professional and Enterprise editions can take it. WindSLIC will insert a SLIC table in memory, similar to what Daz' Loader does for MBR. The BIOS itself is never modified by a Loader, only by a BIOS/DMI mod.

    Then again, WINDSlic, looks mighty complicated...

    I guess I'll pass and just use MBR and have some virtual drive software from my motherboard to "virtual drive" the remaining 700 plus gb.

    or until windows loader or Toolkit or extreme loaders comes with a new update to activate under GPT parts...

    so to all those who posted in this thread and helping me understand some.. A Big Thank you and keep up the helpful spirits..
    :)
