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.

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

    • DAZLoader says:

      i thinks it’s uefi laptop you should try boot loading windows setup from legacy bios mode and this way install windows after that don’t install or update anything just use our loader.. that should work

  2. Leanna says:

    I have tried to use the mrb regenerator but stillhave the build 7601 not genuine error. What should I do?

  3. sexyyyyyyyy says:

    thankssssssssssss you

  4. Joy1 says:

    My friend have install win 10 (from win 7), after 2 weeks he want back to win 7, but win 10 system miss old files for rollback. So I have install win 7 new, format disk and after reboot with new win 7, I habe got that error message from bootloader:unsupported Partitionen
    Have you any idea what I can do or fix for it?

  5. Raymond says:

    I had to use windows repair on the OS install page (had problem, boot loader not found can’t boot) corrected problem but now getting “not genuine” message from windows. Tried to run your loader and the file disappeared. I don’t have the KB971033 installed. How can I get windows genuine again?

    • DAZLoader says:

      use mbr regenerator and then apply our loader

      • windowstrouble says:

        I have run the mbr regenerator and have uninstalled KB971033, rebooted and tried to run the Daz Loader. It does stop ‘disappearing’ – but it does nothing. I get a spinning circle for a little bit, then nothing.


      • windowstrouble says:

        BTW….I did use Windows 7 for a couple years with no trouble and just recently had the warning that it wasn’t genuine.

        I was thinking about re-formatting my drive and starting over. Maybe that’s the only way to fix this?

      • DAZLoader says:

        also antivirus and firewall can be blocking loader too.. Try disabling them and enable after loading.. But sometimes the best solution is just to reformat drive and install loader on clean pc..

  6. DaveC says:

    Since my previous post I have checked for the file KB971033 and it was installed on my system on 19/08/2013, yet my windows 7 still says it’s genuine. ???



  7. DaveC says:

    I see you say that the loader will allow an upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10 but on various other sites it says it wont. I have a UEFI BIOS and Loader 2.2.1 and windows 7 has worked perfectly with ALL MS upgrades.
    Could you please confirm that Windows 10 upgrade will work

    Kind Regards


    • DAZLoader says:

      it will work read other users comments there was plenty of people which used our loader and upgraded to windows 10 just do a manual upgrade if nothing helps google for instructions..

  8. machival says:

    It worked.
    I have problem. My desktop wallpaper turns black. Nothing affected but cant change

    And what if i uninstalled the loader,
    Will i lost genuine activate?


  9. WulK3 says:

    Will installing the loader give me ability to update to win 10 ?

  10. Don Sweet says:

    Thank you for your loader it works as you say. Just one question:
    The KB 971033 update seems to be embedded into SP1, and thus does not appear to be available to uninstall, does this mean the whole SP1 should be avoided or uninstalled?

    • DAZLoader says:

      no you should see that update in unistall proprams and then check to show updates box.. If it’s not there than maybe it’s not installed..

  11. wyyyxz says:

    Hi DAZLoader,

    Can u make something which to prevent the installation of KB971033? Or is there anyway to prevent it’s installation permanently?


    • DAZLoader says:

      Hi just uninstall this windows update and then go to updates and select to hide this update and after that it doesn’t bother you no more.. 🙂

  12. Michael says:

    If anyone can help me. Im not very good with tech stuff, i run the windows loader but It cannot find an active partition “Error finding your systems active partition” So i assume i must use Active@ Kill Disk, but I have no idea what to do, what it will do and im not too sure if formatting my hard drive is worth it.

    • DAZLoader says:

      Try making two partitions and format the one you install windows in it.. Then apply loader..

    • Jim says:

      Try reading the user guide that is posted along with the program. You will learn a lot more than having people baby through the process. Its how all of the people who know how to do this stuff learned it. You have to not be lazy and invest the time to read yourself. Nobody is doing you any favors by holding your hand through every little step. If you have data on your hard drive that you are afraid of losing, back it up or get another hard drive to practice / test /tinker / learn with. Then

  13. Joseph Andrews says:

    …your loader works well, and a recent W7install topped off by your loader is recognized as genuine.

    But Windows Update does not work! I got a few updates but then no more. I do not have SP1 with Windows 7 and am unable to install IE 11 (I am stuck on IE 8…to update it requires SP1?

    Is there a fix?

  14. Chris says:

    I have the OEM windows in my computer. Will I be able to go back to OEM after using the windows loader?

  15. Paul says:

    I have the “unsupported partition table” error. how do i go about fully formatting like it says to do?

  16. Juan says:

    The W7 sp1 update install kb971033? (sorry for my bad english). Thanks!

  17. Dinda Fariz Alamsyah says:

    I Had problem, after i use the activator, my device manager cant recognize my Graphic Card (Nvidia) it said Code 43. How to solve this ?

    Thanks 😀

    • DAZLoader says:

      it’s have nothing to do with activator think logically.. use display driver uninstaller and then download newest nvidia drivers.. Check your hardware too maybe you unplugged your video card a little bit..

  18. Nabeel Molwani says:

    How to delete KB971033 windows update.

    • DAZLoader says:

      go to control panel / uninstall a program / on the left side press view installed updates/ uninstall it..

  19. Jack3 says:

    I successfully activated my Windows with your great tool, thank you for it! But I have a question – what if I need to reinstall the OS? I click “Uninstall” in the main window, install Windows, then install your crack again, is this right? No need to run RemoveWAT anywhere during the process?

    • DAZLoader says:

      yes next time you install windows download our tool again and activate windows that’s all 🙂

  20. Mahendra says:
