How to Activate Windows 7 + Make it Genuine ✔

After you have installed Windows 7, you will need to activate it within 30 days to prevent it from becoming restricted. This tutorial teaches you how to do so with a program known as Windows Loader by Daz. Essentially, this program fools Windows into thinking that you have an activated version of Windows 7 running (updates, etc. will work).

However, some exclusive programs that Microsoft issues (like Microsoft Security Essentials–an antivirus) require a script called Windows Genuine Advantage to be installed. In this tutorial, you will also learn how to complete this with a cracked copy of Windows Genuine Advantage.

Things You Should Know:

This is the loader application that’s used by millions of people worldwide, well known for passing Microsoft’s WAT (Windows Activation Technologies) and is arguably the safest Windows activation exploit ever created. The application itself injects a SLIC (System Licensed Internal Code) into your system before Windows boots; this is what fools Windows into thinking it’s activated and genuine. Below are some features:


  • Automatically fools Windows into thinking this copy is activated and genuine.  *There is a Difference (Read Bottom)
  • Can be run as a standalone application
  • Works well with all system languages
  • Custom OEM information can be installed
  • Argument support for silent installs
  • Can be used for pre-activation
  • Application integrity checking
  • Custom error handling
  • Support for hidden partitions and complex setups
  • Can work alongside Linux’s GRUB or any other boot manager
  • Works with TrueCrypt and many other types of hard drive encryption applications
  • Add your own certificates and serials externally
  • Offers certificate and serial installation only for users with an existing SLIC 2.1
  • Automated system profiling (The application matches everything up for you)

More Features-

  • Compatible with Windows 7 SP1 and all system updates
  • Will run on x86 and x64 systems
  • No core system files get modified
  • No extra processes are run so you have nothing eating at your RAM
  • All key parts of the exploit are encrypted with a custom encryption
  • The exploit runs before Windows so it’s harder for Microsoft to prevent
  • The exploit patches all necessary tables making activation look authentic
  • The application will select the best profile for your system during installation
  • Each and every user has a unique version of the exploit installed on his/her system

Supported Operating Systems-

  • Windows 7 Ultimate
  • Windows 7 Ultimate E
  • Windows 7 Professional
  • Windows 7 Professional E
  • Windows 7 Home Premium
  • Windows 7 Home Premium E
  • Windows 7 Home Basic
  • Windows 7 Starter

Activating Windows 7 with Windows Loader by Daz (v2.2.1):

  1. If you do not already have one, find a copy of Windows 7 somewhere online.  Try TPB,, for torrents or see if you can find direct links via Google.
  2. Install Windows 7 (as a 30-day trial).  Do NOT provide a product key and uncheck “Activate Windows automatically when I am online”.
  3. Log-on to Windows as an administrator.
  4. Download Windows Loader v2.2.1 by Daz from here (latest version).  Run the program as an Administrator (right-click: Run as Administrator).  It should look similar to this:

  1. Simply click “Install”.  Then,  setup should run in the background then automatically restart your computer.
  2. IMPORTANT: When updating Windows 7, “uncheck” and “hide” (right-click) Update # KB971033.  This update rearms the activation and validation components originally installed in Windows 7.
  3. Thats it!  Enjoy a fully activated copy of Windows 7 brought to you by  Additionally, the genuine status will give you access to many exclusive features reserved for only Genuine Microsoft Software Users.

*A genuine copy of Windows bypasses Windows Activation Technologies (WAT) which was implemented to discourage software piracy.  An activated “only” copy will still run but will receive prompts for Genuine products.  The Loader provided above by Daz automatically addresses both issues in one.

    OMG !! Been searching for ages to make Windows 7 genuine and this really works !! Chuffed much :D

  2. #2 by Jack on October 11, 2011 - 1:07 pm

    When I installed mine my laptop turned back on saying ‘BOOT MGR IS MISSING’. Is you get this message, here’s what to do:
    Insert your installation disc and go to the SYSTEM RECOVERY TOOLS
    Open a command prompt and type these things rolled by enter on each command:
    cd boot

  3. #3 by Jack on October 11, 2011 - 1:09 pm


    Type ‘exit’ and restart your laptop

    It should boot up properly :)

    Now follow this blogs instructions to activate windows and you’ll have your laptop set up !!

    Hey there! Nice to know it worked for you!

    • #5 by Jack on November 15, 2011 - 3:55 pm

      Hey, so I installed Windows 7 and went to type in the command prompts and upon typing ‘c:\boot>bootrec/fixboot’ it returned saying ‘the volume does not contain a recognised file system. Please make sure that all required file system drivers are loaded and that the volume is not corrupted’……any ideas of a fix??

    This does not work for me! as soon as the installation starts a popup box comes up saying “Windows Genuine Advantage Cracked v3 cannot be installed on windows xp/vista x64″ i am running on windows 7 ultimate what is the problem?

    • #9 by Sachin on April 8, 2012 - 8:21 pm

      Hey Nate,

      The post has been updated. As long as you use the Windows Loader by Daz provided above, the copy of Windows on your system will automatically be genuine and activated. Let me know if you need any more assistance!

    hey guys what if I got a status of MODIFIED- UNINSTALL ANY OTHER CRACKs in the STATUS mode? what will i do to make it UNTOUCHEd?

    • #12 by Sachin on April 26, 2012 - 6:53 am


      The MODIFIED Status appears when you have somehow tried to crack Windows with another software. Therefore, the files are tampered and the Loader cannot do its job. If you remember the software, you can try to uninstall it or even use System Restore to revert all changes. Unfortunately, that is all I can help you without actually seeing your computer. Good luck!

    • #17 by Sachin on July 25, 2012 - 9:48 am

      Did the loader give you a confirmation of successful completion? It might also be an incompatibility issue with your hardware and Windows 7…


  11. #18 by Peron on July 23, 2012 - 9:23 pm

    I have windows 7 ultimate with service pack 1 and i tried to run windows loader but it keept saying erorr 0×00006

    • #19 by Sachin on July 25, 2012 - 9:51 am

      Unfortunately, I’ve never heard of that error before. Perhaps, you can try another loader such as Hazar’s Loader, etc.

    my laptop is running a win7 ultimate pirated copy. As per your blog,i downloaded and installed windows loader v2.1.7. To my misery,i am not getting to install it as the status says ‘Modified – Uninstall other cracks’. I don’t remember downloading some other cracks. What do i do? How do i find the other cracks?? Please Help Me Out!!

    • #37 by untouch on February 28, 2013 - 9:35 pm

      Get another win7 installer over internet that untouched

      i already using daz and works well with untouch version of windows 7 ultimate sp1 msdn installer

    • #38 by Sachin on March 1, 2013 - 3:56 pm

      Hey Ankan,

      Like untouch said, you need to find another (clean) copy of Windows 7 to install. You can even try first installing a trial version first. It seems you probably used an AIO version or something of the like that had built in activation that malfunctioned.



  22. #39 by Akshath on March 2, 2013 - 12:32 pm

    WOW, Thanks a lot mate, it just worked…

    I had this problem and turns out the chipset didn’t recognized the new hard drive correctly. Ended up grabbing some new drivers from HP. I couldn’t find an updated for my OEM. Go figure. Confusing as hell.

  25. #43 by djdave86 on March 20, 2013 - 9:23 am

    thks u saved my days, i bought a stupid pirated installer with useless crack, googled up and found your solution. Good job there mate.

  26. #44 by Mike on March 25, 2013 - 10:59 am

    I have Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 for several years. Run MS Security Essentials, and just recently, I installed IE v9. Never before had problems with Genuine validation.
    But today, my screen went black… I called to Microsoft Support and they told me that my key is MSDN, and the can’t help me – the key is blocked.
    Please tell me what to do. Do I need to re-install Windows 7 in order to use windows loader v2.1.7 ? Or just run the loader on my existing installation?

  27. #45 by Mike on March 25, 2013 - 12:31 pm

    What is the latest version of windows loader?
    Is it v2.1.7, v2.2.1, or whatever else?
    Which version is recommended to use?

    • #46 by Sachin on March 29, 2013 - 10:32 am

      I would recommend the link I have posted. This will probably work best for you. Also, yes you will need to do a clean install of windows to use the loader if Microsoft has blocked your previous key.

  28. #47 by sal on March 28, 2013 - 12:07 pm

    thank you for crack

  29. #48 by SLAYER on March 30, 2013 - 2:33 pm

    THANKZZZZZZ ALOT….. :):):):)

  30. #49 by Phil on April 11, 2013 - 11:21 pm

    Thanks for this, I wanted to install Microsoft Security Essentials but my copy of win7 wasn’t genuine. It was activated though not with Daz’s loader.
    I found the latest version 2.2.1 on another site and ran the loader. It came up saying ‘Modified – Uninstall other cracks’ as expected but the readme file that comes with the loader is very helpful.
    It directed me to ‘WAT Fix’, which fixed whatever the original crack that was used had done and then I used Daz’s loader. It all went super smooth which is never my experience when I’m messing with windows so I was very happy.
    One thing you did mention here that’s not mentioned in Daz’s loader readme is about the Windows Update KB971033. Shortly after I had rebooted from using the loader I noticed windows update had activated (it was switched off before using WAT Fix and loader) and started downloading and installing new updates, before I could stop it, it had installed KB971033. I was able to uninstall it successfully before doing the restart that windows update required for the new updates to take effect.

    Now I have a perfectly activated and genuine copy of windows!
    Thanks for your help.

      You will have to clean your system of previously tried crack attempts. Or if you can’t, try reinstalling Windows and giving it another go!

      If the DVD is corrupt it is possible that recovery its files is a lost cause. But this must have been caused by a burner error. Perhaps you should have the burner checked…
