I'm fairly certain I know someone with an OEM W7 disc with all versions on it, :wink:
That won't work if machine came with vista it is Slic 2.0 in bios windows 7 uses Slic2.1 .

For preactivation you need manufacturer Slic + certificate +oem:slp key.
Depending on brand of machine some actually updated there bioses from slic 2.0 to 2.1

I know for a fact HP did it I with some models upgraded mother in laws machines bios years back saved modding the bios.
So rather than bios mod on old machine he could just use Daz loader from correct source.

I'm not very computer savvy, so have no idea what any of that means,
I just know this has been installed on PCs with NO OS whatsoever on them, and that never had an OS on them.
its a PC builders disc, it is already pre-activated

Officially no such thing official one only one manufacturer on disk but you can make multi oem disks with various manufacturers last count multi-oem/retail project has 133 brands that will preactivate. And yes handy to make if working on computers.
If the disc you mention can preactivate none branded machine then it is also using Daz loader :smiley:

ah, ok
yes, the disc my friend has contains logos (if you want to use them) for numerous machines
I know it has been used on machines that are NON standard builds, and also on machines from manufacturers that arent big name or on the logo's available
some machines its been used on have been upgraded to W10 with no adverse effects 3 years on.

Yes once the upgrade proccess checks if machine is activated and qualifies, the loader is deleted from boot sector via the windows 10 installation it is never needed again machice will now have HWID stored on micros*ft servers that how if you reinstall windows 10 you do not need to enter your serial number.
Just some info better get back on subject :smiley:

All retail W7 discs have all full versions on them it's the product key which activates the right one.
I remember the days of the double install where you'd clean install W7 from a cheap retail upgrade disc on a freshly built PC. Then clean install it again fooling it as it looks for a previous version of Windows and use the upgrade key. Very naughty but it worked
