    I had Dual boot on one pc: Windows 7 Ultimate activated with "Windows loader" and Windows 8 Pro with "KMS + WMC Key", all Ok like on 1 Month.

    Something went wrong on the system and after Reboot i get the Disk Repair Dialog on Windows 8.

    Windows 8 repaired the partitions correctly but now when i returned to Windows 7 i get the "This copy of windows is not Genuine" & tried Windows loader again but I can't activate, i get the "unsupported partition table" message on Windows Loader, so i suspect win 8 transformed my windows 7 partition to GPT or is hidden or something like that


    I don't have access to that computer right now but please give me some ideas on what to do

    Thanks in advance

    Edit: Was something easy, The Boot partition was hidden, just remounted it and all OK again, thanks to everybody for your suggestions.

    Check if it is possible to modify your bios with SLIC 2.1 and then use an oem activator with bios option.

    Thanks, i think Flashing will be my last resource, i also know that i can just reformat the drive, but is a SSD and i think that will be kinda bad too.

    i have other drives, if i just move the boot to other drive will not work Windows Loader correctly again?

    Re-run the loader with admin privileges as usual, go in advanced mode, try to unchecked legacy mode. It has been w while since I used Daz L .

    you would not be able to boot Win7 if the partition converted to GPT.. or even the content of the partition ever exist :D

    The thing is that the partition disappeared one time, after a second "repair" the partition returned intact, but without access to the WL patching, it's a freaky situation :D i don't know what the hell is going on

    Besides the GPT thing what can cause the "unsupported partition table" message? bios doesn't have any protection, they're old gigabyte bios

    It's like the win7 partition changed to a "OEM" state or something :(

    Check permissions on win 7 drive. Win 8 mush have changed those & owner must be win 8 account..

    Hes Problem is W7 Activation with Windows Loader, it doesn't matter jack-**** if he screwed something up with W8, that belongs in the Support thread of the Windows Loader.
    Seriously ... :wallbash: the Loader Support Forum is there to be used, not to ignore it.
