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.

3. If you have to verify with one of the offers and there is this error: “there are no offers for your country” please go to this link to download the file: http://  (delete one space after http://)


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..

A. Go to the UEFI menu and find secure boot, then disable it.


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.

Good luck if you have any other issues write us and we will add them here!

    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.

  2. DOS Lingo says:

    Any thoughts, or plans on a win 10 loader?

  3. Jordan says:

    does it work on windows 10

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. leel says:

    hi, i got the problem “the serial wasn’t successfully installed ”
    i forgot to disable antivirus when i tried to install win loader, so it didn’t successfully install. what can i do to solve this? except reinstall windows is there any way?

    • DAZLoader says:

      hi try again with disabled av and firewall, you can disconnect from internet too.. If this doesn’t help try using mbr regenerator and then try again..

  8. Pijan says:

    Hi daz.. I got problem with “certificate wasn’t successfully installed ” when i try to use the loader vr.2.2.2

  9. ozzy says:

    thank you very much for your work.
    I would like to bring one issue.
    I have a msi laptop which has a geforce 940 m card but when i patch the system with this, the graphic card gives code 43 error.
    when i remove it is gone.
    could it be something on start up?

    • DAZLoader says:

      Really strange. Do you updated your video drivers to the newest version? loader only install serial key on bios level it shouldn’t affect any hardware..

      • ozzy says:

        indeed strange.
        graphics drivers are updated.
        but graphic card gives error 43 as soon as loader is installed.
        i even tried dual boot. it fixed the problem but then my activation went from the main os.
        i installed loader and error 43 again.

        currently i am using on unregistered version because of only this.
        other pc i have installed this have no problems at all.
        they are active for months & years.

        • DAZLoader says:

          really i’m not experienced this issue maybe google for some answers as it can happen to other users too, but your graphic cards drivers could interact with bios in some way it hurts loader..

  10. hqck says:

    Hi, I instal the loader my windows is activated but when i start windows, i see option like windows 7 vista server, windows 7 vista server no slic debug default, debug legacy, windows nt 2000 xp and loader help, I don’t know what to do to not see this sorry for my bad english lol

    • DAZLoader says:

      Did you have previous versions of windows installed? if yes run msconfig.exe, then go to the boot tab and you can delete extra boot options. If other problems – go to FAQ section

  11. Maze says:

    How do I remove the 2010 loader/key?

    • DAZLoader says:

      i don’t understand what do you want. To delete loader just delete it and that’s all to remove old key there is an option removing key, but maybe it’s your original key.. I really don’t know what you want to do..

  12. Pieter says:

    How to make it run automatically?

  14. Nate says:

    Daz my man…you’re a bada$$! I’m sittin with this sehxy ass license! Not gonna lie it has been a rough 3 days… But I finally managed to get it. Nice fresh smooth system, just in time for all my pc upgrades to come in the mail tomorrow! Ready to rock w/ this i5 7600k and rx 480. Now to see if I can upgrade to windows 10. For those of you having trouble with this, just backup all your files you wanna save, and just reformat. Seriously, it works. Might be confusing at the start but keep at it. Mad respekt Daz, appreciate it bud.

  15. DC says:

    And yes I have deleted KB971033

  16. DC says:

    I can’t even get the loader to run. I double click it, I hit yes to allow program to run. Then nothing happens. I’ve even tried right clicking and running as administrator. I have turned off comodo firewall, and disabled anti-virus.

    • DAZLoader says:

      It must be your antivirus isolated some files of the loader in sandbox mode before you have downloaded it as false positive. Disable antivirus and firewall download the file and then try running our loader.

  17. Louiesuki says:

    Hi, I installed windows 7 on my old laptop and activate windows 7 with windows 7 loader by DAZ after the install process i click restart and my laptop wont boot now it shows an commands and says drive 0x80 and letting me use activekill disk or gparted. How to fix this?

  18. alexandros says:

    hello daz i have only 1 hard disc ”C:” and is NTFS but i still see the ”Unsupported partition table”.Please help me how can i fix it?

    • DAZLoader says:

      is your motherboard uses uefi? you need to install windows in legacy mode usually. Also did you used any other loaders besides our? app called “mbr regenerator” could help

  19. noname says:

    Hello Daz i would like to knwo if the window loader is compatible with nvme m.2 SSDs.

    I would like do new W7 pc and install a nvme m.2 SSD but I have no idea if the load could work


  20. Peter says:

    I have Ultimate win7 and the 2.2.2 loader on my pc for years. Now i get a BOOTMGR is missing error, and cannot boot in. Tried all the bootrec fixes i ve read on forums, did not work.
    Is that anything i can try?
    (an error check said i have no physical problems on my HDD)

    • DAZLoader says:

      try entering safe mode and runing mbr regenerator from it, this should help. Also check the boot sequence in bios remove usb drives etc.

  21. Superhorse says:

    First of all, why was my comment removed?

    Second of all, I understand you have no obligation to help me but I would rather you told me that there’s nothing I can do instead of simply removing my comment.

    I tried to use your loader but it said “The serial wasn’t successfully installed”. Any idea as to why? I’ve uninstalled the two windows updates that could potentially mess with your loader. I also tried to use MBR Regenerator but it crashes and disables explorer.exe. Any help?

    • DAZLoader says:

      hi, your comment is still pending maybe it didn’t passed spam filter. MBR should work fine if it crashes there could be deeper problems. I suggest just to reinstall windows because without technical knowledge it’s hard to debug the problem you have..

  22. Lodhi says:

    I have windows Server 2008, Windows loader activate it as trial period for 60 days

    Is there any method to activate it permanentaly?

  23. steve ceccato says:

    Hi Daz,
    I installed loader 2.2.2 and was succesful. I upgraded to windows 10 but had problems with some drivers so i rollef back to windows 7 pro. After rolling back i was getting a non genuine warning again. I reinstalled the loader but after reset windows does not boot and i am getting a black screen with
    Disc Read Error
    Press ctrl, alt, del to restart.

    Any idea on what the problem is? Im guessing something to do with partitioning or the bios?
    How can i fix it?

    • DAZLoader says:

      check out FAQ section there is a section for black screen and you probably need to use mbr regenerator to rebuild mbr you damaged.

  24. Superhorse says:

    Hello, I’m using windows 7 enterprise will your loader work with this os?

  25. Pyretta says:

    Cheers for the Loader, mate!

  26. Kyol says:

    Your shit is the best Daz, thank you.
