Common Issues & FAQ

We get a lot of PM’s and emails with your requests to help fix problems regarding windows 7 loader. And now we will review the most common problems:

1. Check if you have installed KB971033 windows update if yes, delete it. This update is designed to detect loader so make sure it’s deleted from your system. If you install loader having this update you probably get not genuine error.

2. Many people get problems with MBR or Not Genuine Error (Black Desktop saying windows not genuine). Before installing loader you can use MBR Regenerator to reset windows back to 30 days trial. You find it easily on our website HERE.

windows update fix

Solution posted by one of our loader users:

Latest solution is to update windows manually downloading updates from here: and after that windows update will work automatically.

“Cause: probably Windows 7 bandwidth/servers were allocated to Windows 10, so it really takes HOURS until it finishes to check for updates. To install Ultimate + SP1 and takes 24-48 hours to display (today) 222+43 updates to install (after one separate first update KB976902).
Solution: wait or install manually KB3138612 and then your updates will be shown in 10-20 minutes (or more, but definitely faster than without it). It will take some hours until download and install (due to bandwidth resize for Windows 7) but please stop blaming loader for updates problems. It’s Microsoft fault.
Note: no need to restart the update service, it will only get worse (interrupts the check and then starts over). Just WAIT and updates will come!!!”

We noticed that microsoft maybe released update which stops windows update service from working, but we have a solution: open command line (cmd) in administrator mode and type “net stop wuauserv” without quotes to stop update service. Then type “net start wuauserv” this command restarts windows update service and you should get your updates now. Hope it works for you all!

Alternative is to use this clever microsoft tool which can fix many problems related to windows update:

We will add more solutions in the future..

UEFI motherboards support


The activator don’t work when your hard drive using GPT format. The solution is to format your drive to use MBR.

From your BIOS select to boot the Windows DVD without UEFI, press and hold SHIFT and then press F10 and then enter this:

list disk
select disk 0
convert mbr
create partition primary
select partition 1
format fs=ntfs quick

Boot Windows 7 iso like you do always and then  installal Windows. After windows are installed then you can then install daz loader.

To force windows 7 boot without triggering UEFI use the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool. Once the USB is created just delete bootmgr.efi from the USB and then try to boot from it.


Server 2012 (R2) problems and how to solve them

Starting with OS – Server 2012 range MS required the RSDP to be in read only memory. Because of this there are limitations.

* PC’s with already existing SLIC  data in their BIOS should work.
* Systems with an Intel CPU’s have succeeded before because they chipsets prone to lock picking.
* PC’s with an AMD CPU’ can get problems activating if they doesn’t have an existing SLIC in their BIOS.
* If the loaders cmd shows “v2.3” or “v2.2” but pc still not activated then you probably having problems with compatibility

To convert Windows Server 2012 from evaluation edition you should use this command:

DISM /online /Set-Edition:<edition ID> /ProductKey:XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX /AcceptEula

Here is an example:

DISM /online /Set-Edition:ServerDatacenter /ProductKey:B8BRN-RUI6P-BVTBM-89P9Y-XQRTH /AcceptEula

Your pc probably have to be restarted 2 times before loader will do it’s job.

Recovery after failed bootup – BLACK SCREEN

Is Windows 7 are failing to boot after you installed the windows 7 activator newest version? Just try doing these steps:

  1. Boot up computer using your selected Windows 7  iso file.
  2. Press and hold your SHIFT key and after that press F10.
  3. Writing this should help “bootsect.exe /nt60 SYS /force” (just write without quotes).
  4. And finally restart your PC.

Attention! If steps you followed aren’t fixing booting problems you have to try using this command “bootsect.exe /nt60 ALL /force”. Make sure before using this command that all flash drives and memory cards are removed.

Also you can try holding the “R” key after your BIOS screen. If you press it at the right time then you’ll see a boot menu also there could be other options depending on your pc model. Boot and from menu select to booting without SLIC.

    Would installing another OS like Linux remove the loader especially if i will install grub to the same disk? If I will install grub on another disk then the loader won’t work as it should?

  2. Pez says:

    is it safe to install the security updates? I need it to download a program that I use and it requires restarting pc with updates.

    • DAZLoader says:

      hi, yes you can install all updates. If there is any problem you can always uninstall them in the control panel

  3. AZ says:

    thank you DAZ.i have windows 7 ultimate and downloaded the windows 7 loader v2.2.2 but before i install it should i change the profile options because all of the three options are pre-set on asus and i have a gigabyte H81M-S2PV motherboard .

  4. Joe Schmoe says:

    Found out my laptop has a COA that was hidden u der the battery. Any way to reverse the effects of the loader to bring back the activation screen and enter my authentic​ key?

    • DAZLoader says:

      hi yes you can change your serial key in my computer or start the loader and there you can add your key too

  5. alokemoy mukherjee says:

    i m using windows 7 sp1 ultimate(64 bit).after installing loader it is saying serials and certificates were successfully installed but the reboot popup is not opening,but the status is showing “Windows is activated “.Is it fine??

    • DAZLoader says:

      hi if it is showing windows activated then everything is fine and your system now is fully activated. Enjoy

  6. Bodie says:

    Hi, I had tried activator several time on windows 7 starter without any problem. Thank you so much sir!

  7. AladinHD says:

    Hi! Thank you for your great work! It worked perfectly to me, but can i update my win7 ultimate to windows 8? I disabled windows update, and i will do it on the installation of win8, I have no antivirus, can i do it? Or this will cause a problem?

    • DAZLoader says:

      hi do you own original windows 8 version? we suggest to upgrade straight to windows 10 this option was available from microsoft as a free upgrade even with activated windows 7 with our loader.

      • AladinHD says:

        Oh okay! Thank you very much! I tried One time but the upgrade was stuck at 22% so i canceled It, should i be more patient and let It take its time?

      • DAZLoader says:

        you could let it sit for a little bit longer or you could just make a fresh install too. It’s your choise. Better to upgrade and choose to delete all files and programs because they use different versions..

  8. TheLongMan says:

    is it possible to activate Win7 Ultimate with your loader?

  9. Guillermo says:

    Hi, i’m trying to execute your activator on my windows 7 Home Premium, but the program is not able to get opened, i got a message error dialog. What could i do?

  10. Achor says:

    After updating with kb971033 windows showing not genuine but uninstalled kb971033 and run slmgr -rearm after restart windows was activated permanently so still loader doesn’t work with update kb971033 plz find solution so that even after updating kb970133 windows must be genuine

    • DAZLoader says:

      You are asking impossible. Microsoft developed kb971033 in order to detect this loader.. Just don’t install it.. it does nothing except detects if you are using loader.. If you have problems with loader first we suggest reseting your mbr use mbr regenerator application.. after that loader should work fine.

  11. Don says:

    Hello Daz,

    Are there any plans on creating a loader for Windows server 2016 editions. If so what is the ETA,


  12. Kaustubh says:

    HI! My windows 7 was working absolutely fine until I installed windows 10 dual boot. When I tried to launch windows 7 it said the copy is not genuine, so I applied the windows 7 loader. Loader failed to execute throwing an error about system protection, though my system is not protected with any antivirus or windows utilities. That was fine and I quite the loader. After restarting windows 7 it simply gives me the black screen with cursor after the windows logo. It isnt starting!! I tried chkdsk /r, sfc /scannow, bootsect.exe /nt60 ALL /force and bootsect.exe /nt60 SYS /force with no luck. Issue still persist. Please help me, I cannot format and reinstall windows 7.

    • DAZLoader says:

      hi maybe you messed something in installation. Boot safe mode make backups and reinstall win 7 probably the fastest way to solve problem.

  13. DOS Lingo says:

    Any thoughts, or plans on a win 10 loader?

  14. Jordan says:

    does it work on windows 10

  15. K says:

    Not sure if this question is specific enough to get a good answer. However, I thought that I would try anyway.

    I have discovered a Windows 7 application that specifically seems to detect a Windows 7 version activated by Daz Loader. If Windows 7 has been activated by Daz Loader, the application changes its behavior from a Windows 7 system NOT activated by Daz Loader.

    Any hints on how to use Daz Loader or to “cover its tracks” so that its use cannot be detected or is more difficult to detect?


    • DAZLoader says:

      Hi daz loader works on bios level and if windows serial key is checked online it will show up as activated with “unknown or multiple key”.. Usually these apps use windows updates to detect loader. Delete windows updates which detect loader and that way you should be safe.

  16. Ali Q says:

    ok its no longer needed to reply
    I’ve fixed all the problems alone.
    and my windows is activated now, thanks for your great tool.

  17. Ali Q says:

    hey daz,

    im using GPT formated drive on a UEFI motherboard.
    its m.2 ssd.
    and I’m getting unsupported partition table

    • DAZLoader says:

      GPT is not suported only NTFS with mbr

      • Ali Q says:

        sorry about my new comment i didn’t realize that you have replied. anyway, I have converted my memory system to MBR, and then I formatted my drive to NTFS after that I reinstalled windows. but I have some difficult and confusing problems, but I figured out how to fix them. it took hours of thinking.
        and one more thing uefi works only with gpt memory system or what ever it called.
        so converting gpt to mbr won’t allow you to install the windows, but I fixed this, second thing. uefi mobo’s are not designed or support installing windows from usb, so ibhad this problem and I fixed it after couple of hours.
        so there’s 2 problems useres will experience with uefi&gpt.
        uefi: won’t allow installing from usb .
        gpt: won’t allow you to install if its converted to mbr.
        and you need a usb to modifiy the windows installing, since CD/DVD won’t allow you to modifiy.

        at the end thank you very much. I like your tool. and I have a request. make a windows-office-activator tool. or you must do it to be the best tool ever (windows and office loader by daz) lol.
