    Do you have a legit key for it? Because it can't be activated by any other means.

    I can't find any 7 N iso on techbench at all, it's on MVS but i will wait for the answer about the key.

    Daz loader won't work because the win 7 N oem:slp key and cert is never leaked and Homepremium can't be KMS activated.

    Sounds bad. What would you recommend me than ? i have sk_windows_7_home_premium_with_sp1_x64_dvd_u_676654 already downloaded, but i wanted to install the N version to get rid of WMP garbage which won´t be used at all on particular PC. It have UEFI bios, so DAZ loader is out anyways. Will WindSLIC work ?

    Nobody should ever install any N version, it's not only WMP you will miss, there is a lot more missing which you maybe want to use later.
    WMP is not garbage, when you don't start it it won't ever bother you.

    Windslic is only for Ultimate. Pro or Enterprise can be KMS activated.

    Daz loader will work on normal (non N versions) on UEFI/GPT systems but only with a valid slic inside the bios, so if there isn't one you could use a modified bios with slic added.

    If your UEFI has a compatibility support module, then get a Pro N instead of the HP N and use a KMS activator to activate.
    That's up to the individual user.

    Yes it has, i was unable to install windows 7 (it ran w10 from the factory) on that notebook (HP 250 G5 btw) without compatibility mode (any guide for it btw ?:)). I need as much freed OS as possible, as windows 7 ultimate which i installed on it doesn´t run that smooth as it should, the notebook has low hw, it was bought just for office work, which however must be done without problems. Windows 7 Starter is out of the game as the PC will run 64 bit apps regularly.

    Which iso i need to install Home Basic x64 (as home basic x64 iso doesn´t exist, or I am wrong ?) by removing ei.cfg ? Any x64 ?

    Any win 7 MSDN iso contains all indices: Starter (x86 only), HomeBasic, HomePremium, Professional and Ultimate. Delete the ei.cfg and all editions will be available.

    And there is not any difference in performance between the editions, starter is the only one who will run a bit faster because it's limited to a certain amount of simultanious running apps/services but it's not recommended to use and x86 only.

    Okay. Yes, i´m staying away from starter for sure. I will install home basic x64, try to activate it using daz loader and hope for at least a little difference in performance. Notebook is just few months old so it shouldn´t run bad enough as it run now with windows 7 ultimate installed. Thanks for your help, no isos needed now.
