    Hi all!

    I got my very first SSD the other day and did a fresh install of Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.
    The first thing I did after installing Windows was to activate it:

    - I placed a certificate (.XRM-MS) at the root of C:\
    - Then I ran slmgr.vbs -ilc C:\name-of-cert and slmgr.vbs -ipk (key)
    - Windows was now activated and I went on to install all of my other stuff...

    Then, after installing Samsung's 'Samsung Magician' and reading up on how to get the most out of my SSD (which includes enabling AHCI), I realized that it was not enabled on my computer, so I did what it says here: (google 'Enabling AHCI mode AFTER Windows 7 Installation' and click the first link)

    After doing this, everything still seemed like it was working, but after some time had passed (I don't know exactly how long, but not more than 24h, I think) Windows told me it was no longer genuine... and now I don't really know what I should do. My guess is that me fiddling with the registry and BIOS have something to do with it, but I don't know much about this stuff, so I could be wrong :/ I fear that I'll have to reinstall Windows again (at least I *hope* that would solve the problem), but I just wanted to try to get some help here before I do that, in case there's a better way?

    You say you put the CERT into the root of C..

    It goes into

    Hope this helps

    Go for Daz's loader...

    Do you think reinstalling Windows would solve the problem? Is Daz's loader the best (only?) solution, or can I solve the problem without using a loader?

    Are we talking about a lappy or a PC ?

    No mention of SLIC2.1 being in the BIOS ?

    That's right and the loader will only install the correct key and cert for the slic 2.1 when present in bios .. The loader itself won't install in this instance

    - It's a custom built desktop machine.
    - SLIC 2.1 is there (I'm looking under SLIC Diagnosis w/ SLIC Toolkit and version says it's 2.1)

    Lol, ok so I did the online validation and it said that Windows was genuine... which I thought was strange at first, because my wallpaper was still black (it was blue before all this happened), so I minimized the browser and noticed that the "Windows is not genuine etc." text was no longer there. Then I opened up Properties for 'Computer' and... "Windows is activated" :) I guess I never noticed that the warning disappeared because I'd stopped looking at it :D
    Anyways thanks for all the help everyone, much appreciated!
