# 1 - Recovery
##########################################################################
Is Windows failing to boot after you installed the loader? Just do the following
.
*
*
*
*

Boot up the PC from your Windows installation disk


Press and hold SHIFT and then press F10
Input "bootsect.exe /nt60 SYS /force" (without quotes)
Restart the PC

Note: If the above doesn't fix your boot issue then use the command "bootsect.ex
e /nt60 ALL /force" instead. Just make sure you remove all USB flash drives befo
re you use the command.
Alternatively try holding the 'R' key after your BIOS screen. If you time it rig
ht then you'll see a boot menu. From the menu select to boot without a SLIC.

##########################################################################
# 2 - Genuine status
##########################################################################
Have you installed the loader but you're not genuine? Just check the following.
* Check the details line contains "v2.1", "v2.2" or "v2.3"
* Try to validate online with Internet Explorer at http://www.microsoft.com/genu
ine/validate/
Note: If the details line doesn't read v2.1, v2.2 or v2.3 then go to the advance
d tab, select to disable type 4 memory and reinstall the loader. If that doesn't
work then use the legacy setting instead.

##########################################################################
# 3 - Questions and answers
##########################################################################
Q. The loaders status says "Modified - Uninstall other cracks", what do I do?
A. You can either find a way to uninstall the other cracks, download WAT Fix or
format. http://forums.mydigitallife.info/threads/26994
Q. Why did I lose activation after I allowed Windows to run startup repair?
A. Startup repair will write a new boot sector. To prevent this use the followin
g command from command prompt as an administrator "bcdedit /set {default} bootst
atuspolicy ignoreshutdownfailures"
Q. I dual boot with Windows 8 and the loaders not working for me, so how do I fi

x it?
A. Boot to Windows 8 and enter the following command from command prompt as an a
dministrator "bcdedit /set {default} bootmenupolicy legacy"
Q. I installed the loader and I'm still not activated, so what do I do now?
A. Go to the loaders advanced options tab and select to either either disable ty
pe 4 memory or use the legacy setting, then press install and reboot when prompt
ed. You may also need to select the option to ignore the systems existing SLIC a
nd/or revalidate online.
Q. The loaders status says "Unsupported partition table", why is this?
A. You're either using GPT on a UEFI motherboard or you've got a locked OEM part
ition. Both problems can be fixed by fully formatting your entire hard drive.
Q. I received the error message "Error finding your systems active partition", w
hat do I have to do?
A. You need to format the whole hard drive with a program like Active@ Kill Disk
. This issue is caused by your locked OEM partition. http://software.lsoft.net/b
oot-cd-iso.zip
Q. I received the error message "Failed to add loader to the boot code", what do
I have to do?
A. Disable any system protection. Some types of software block the loader applic
ation from installing to the boot code.
Q. I've used a version of the loader before and it failed to work, what do I hav
e to do?
A. If you previously used bootsect to get back into Windows then you first need
to press uninstall, reboot and then install the newest version of the loader.
Q. I've previously used another activation solution and I think it's modified my
systems files, can I fix it?
A. You can first try to uninstall what you originally installed and then try run
ning "sfc.exe /scannow" from command prompt as an administrator.
Q. I lose activation status after
ation, can I fix it?
A. Go to the advanced options and
oader again and see if that cures
memory instead. If it still fails

my systems been to sleep or has been in hibern


select to disable type 4 memory, install the l
it. If you're not cured try to disable type 3
try selecting the legacy setting.

Q. I installed the loader and my system hangs during the boot process, can I fix
it?
A. Go to the advanced options and select to disable type 4 memory, install the l
oader again and see if that cures it. If you're not cured try to disable type 3
memory instead. If it still fails try selecting the legacy setting.
Q. I installed the loader and rebooted but I'm not activated. The loader applica
tion displays the message "BAD SLIC SIZE" or "BAD SLIC DATA", can I fix it?
A. Uninstall the loader, power down and then boot up the system again. Go to the
applications advanced options and select to ignore the existing SLIC and then p
ress install and reboot when prompted.
Q. My systems UEFI, but I've formatted the drive to use MBR and I'm still not ac
tivated. What do I do?
A. Check your UEFI menu for secure boot and make sure it's disabled.

The loader doesn't work when the systems using GPT. The workaround is to pre-for
mat your hard drive so that it uses MBR instead.
From your BIOS select to boot the Windows DVD without UEFI, press and hold SHIFT
and then press F10 and then enter this:
diskpart
list disk
select disk 0
clean
convert mbr
create partition primary
select partition 1
format fs=ntfs quick
Boot the Windows DVD the same way you did the first time and then continue with
the installation of Windows. Once complete you can then install the loader.
To forcefully boot Windows 7 without UEFI you can use the Windows 7 USB/DVD Down
load Tool. Once the USB is created just delete bootmgr.efi from the USB and then
try to boot from it.

##########################################################################
# 5 - Server 2012 (R2) compatibility
##########################################################################
Starting with the Server 2012 range Microsoft requires the RSDP to be in read on
ly memory. Because of this there are limitations.
* Systems with an existing SLIC in their BIOS should have success
* Systems with an Intel CPU may have success due to chipset lock picking
* Systems with an AMD CPU may struggle to gain activation status if they don't h
ave an existing SLIC in their BIOS
* If the loaders details line contains "v2.3" or "v2.2" but your systems not act
ivated then your systems probably not compatible
======
To convert Windows Server 2012 from an evaluation edition you must use the follo
wing command:
DISM /online /Set-Edition:<edition ID> /ProductKey:XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX
/AcceptEula
Here's two examples:
DISM /online /Set-Edition:ServerDatacenter /ProductKey:B7RRX-RVN4P-PCPBM-89D8Y-X
4PQH /AcceptEula
DISM /online /Set-Edition:ServerStandard /ProductKey:VDNYM-JBKJ7-DC4X9-BT3QR-JHR
GY /AcceptEula
Your system may then need to reboot 2 times before the loader will work.

If a certificate or SLIC is released and I have not put out a new version of my
application simply create two folders, one called "Certificates" and another cal
led "SLICs".
In each folder put the files you want to add support for, just be sure you label
the files like this:
*Certificates folder*
Acer.XRM-MS
Advent.XRM-MS
Alienware.XRM-MS
Asus.XRM-MS
*SLICs folder*
Acer.BIN
Advent.BIN
Alienware.BIN
Asus.BIN
When using external files all preset internals will be ignored. This is a cleane
r approach for users who want to build their own list without my presets getting
in the way.
