    hi everybody,
    as the title says i have a samsung notebook with windows 8 (uefi+gpt) and i tried to install windows 7 x64 in dual boot. I did successfully (i have to strictly maintain windows 8 and all the partitions, notebook is not mine) but i am not able to activate that damn windwos 7 :-/. Now, what should i do?

    I tried loader by daz (the best loader i used) but it doesn't work with gpt
    I tried to leave blank product key in windows and to remove tick to "activate windows automatically when connection...." and used ODIN but the result is a blank screen at the reboot :(
    The notebook's owner doesnt' want IR5
    I wanted to try the WindSLIC UEFI SLIC injector but i'm scared to lost dual boot or windows 8 SLIC

    and WindSLIC UEFI SLIC injector will not work with dual boot of windows 8?

    Update: Tried this and it worked really fine... finally it is licensed :D
