Title: Re: Windows 8 support
Post by: humbert on August 10, 2012, 06:14 PM
Let's create this topic after 26 OCTOBER 2012
I was counting on it. :D

Yes and no.

First of all, since when have we pirates ever had to wait for the release date of something to get our hands on it? Only people who buy Windows look to Oct 26th. Let's keep in mind that our forum's official policy mandates that anyone who buys Windows faces immediate expulsion from our group. :)

I know perfectly that it's a little too early to have everyday discussions on Windows 8, but let's never forget that when it comes to computing, time flies. The RTM release is out the door, and I have already seen ads from PC makers selling their products with 8 preinstalled. I don't think it's right to postpone this topic, the sooner and the more we learn, the better. We must stay one step ahead of the world.

Here's the latest status on 8 as far as I know. All the forums indicate that Micro$haft wants to forcibly impose the Metro interface, and people are starting to get mad. Indeed, thewindowsclub.com even wrote a little tweak to disable the Metro interface. Their tweak worked fine on the developers editions, but Microsoft made sure it would NOT work on the release version. The ones who are the maddest are power users like ourselves, since it makes tweaking more difficult. Add to this that the majority of Windows 7 and prior applications will work on 8 but cannot be tiled, they weren't written with this in mind. Some people are saying this might even end up being another Vista.

I tried to install 8 on an old clunker I have in one of my corners, with no success. The Professional edition can be installed on top of Win 7, but not Enterprise. I tried doing exactly this on the clunker, but for some reason all it did was reboot itself with loading Win 8. I'll probably end up doing a reformat to see if that works. Fortunately I made a full backup before experimenting, just in case.

Pro wants a serial number for installation which is unrelated to activation - Enterprise doesn't. As of this date all there was is a 180 activation with some 4 rearms. It's only a matter of time before another Daz loader comes along.

That's my Windows 8 primer for today. I shall continue to post info as I get it. Guys -> it's never too early.  ;)

http://www.nomaher.com/forum/index.php?topic=756.0

Thanks for posting that link to Windows 8 Enterprise. From what I read, Enterprise has more business-related stuff in it, but it can't be installed over Windows 7 - Professional can.  Then again, on installation Enterprise doesn't ask for a key, Professional does. In fact, in the activation text file that comes with the copies I leeched, there's an additional line with the key for Pro that isn't needed on Enterprise. I should note that this is just an installation key, not to be confused with activation.

I've seen some activators on the torrents, but I haven't tested them just yet.

Another important thing to keep in mind. According to PC World, there's no need to wait until Oct 26th. The RTM copy that's already out (and on the torrents) is indistinguishable from the one which they'll start selling to the general public on the 26th, barring some Windows updates along the way.

Have you tried simply typing in that activation command at the command prompt? I'm referring to this:

Open command promt as admin

If you are using Pro, type these lines ONE BY ONE!
slmgr -ipk NG4HW-VH26C-733KW-K6F98-J8CK4
slmgr /skms kms-c.no-ip.org:1688
slmgr.vbs -ato

If you are using Enterprise:
slmgr.vbs -ipk NG4HW-VH26C-733KW-K6F98-J8CK4
slmgr /skms kms-c.no-ip.org:1688
slmgr /ato
slmgr /dli


One guy reported he got activation until 2/2/2013.

Incidentally, are you testing this on your primary computer or do have a secondary one for tests?

Thanks bro for starting the topic.

By the way, I'm already using Windows 8! Couldn't wait till October :)
I also managed to activate it by phone (Search Google: activate windows 8 by phone).
Although I think it isn't possible now. Anyway, you might want to give it a try.

@Humb
The way you mentioned is called KMS activation.
It activates Windows for 180 days, then you need to activate it again.
To activate using KMS you need a working KMS server (like: kms-c.no-ip.org:1688).
Anyhow, all leaked servers are now offline.

If you have installed Windows 8 Enterprise Edition, you will now want to activate it. There are two ways to do it. One via the Internet and other by using the Phone.
 
Here You Will Get Some Toll-Free Phone Numbers Which You Should Call. You Will Be Asked To Give The Numbers To The Other Person, Who Will In Turn Give You A Confirmation ID, Which You'll Need To Enter. Once Done, Click "Activate". Once Activated, You May Wish To View The Licensing Status And Activation ID Of Your Windows 8 With "slmgr.vbs".
 
Please Note:-
 
You Can Follow This Procedure For Activation Of Windows 7 And Windows Vista.

Does it cost to call, for example dial up/minute price as i guess it is not in every country i have to pay the bill to them and back and that would be around 1-1.5 dollars each minute?
I remember when my mom called my granddad, he lives in the Philippians(cant spell it) it costed 100sek for a 1 minute call ( about 13$)

Windows 8 Enterprise Phone Activation

Will this work for those copies of Windows 8 you download from TPB or elsewhere, or do actually have to go out and BUY Windows (eecchh...) :(

Shadow - regarding your post about calling M$oft - when I visited Europe around 5 years aso I bought a telephone card which made the price of calling home very affordable. It's entirely possible that the cheapest card will be cheaper than calling from your home phone.

Do you have Windows 8 up and running on at least one of your PC's? Did you buy it? What are your overall impressions? In your opinion is it worth upgrading - at least right now?

If you did install it, how difficult is the Metro interface?

Thank you.

@Humbert
Man, it's a dream! I love it.
It's very easy, not as everyone thought that it would be difficult.
Switching between the regular desktop and the metro interface is done in just 1 click of keyboard or mouse.
It's the fastest OS I've ever used! Search youtube for reviews, you'll find lots of videos there.

By the way, you can have it for only $14.99 if you apply!

You know I don't buy :P I downloaded the leaked MSDN ISO, then I managed to activate by phone using a leaked key.
I recommend upgrading, but after October 26th when it's available to everyone ;)
Title: Re: Windows 8 Enterprise Phone Activation
Post by: Maher on August 23, 2012, 05:47 PM
Nawab, you forgot to mention 1 very important thing!
To get this method to work, you need a MAK (Multiple Activation Key).
Lots of MAK keys leaked online, but most of them are already blacklisted by Microsoft.
Title: Re: Windows 8 Enterprise Phone Activation
Post by: humbert on August 25, 2012, 10:22 PM
Why not check out full-packs.com (http://full-packs.com). These guys have the latest Win8 activation information as well as which keys are working as of what date, which KMS servers are up (if any). And all kinds of updated information on W8 downloads and activation.

I think I'll probably wait another month before taking the plunge.

Yes, I'm seeing you and Nawab are giving it very good reviews, which will prompt me to take the plunge a little sooner than anticipated. Just a few more questions - is any tile removable (or unpinnable) from the Metro interface, or are there some you can't remove? Can you remove your name in the upper right hand corner?

Was this a clean install or could you simply install it over 7 and keep the apps and configuration preferences?

Tiles are Apps for the modern user interface (Metro). You can edit/remove any tile! They have 2 sizes. They can be unpinned from Start or completely uninstalled from computer if you're not planning to use them at all.

An account on Windows 8 has 2 optins, you can use online Microsoft account (any e-mail @msn.com, @hotmail.com or @outlook.com) or you can use a local account (just like in Windows 7).
If you use your online account it will show the full name in your account. If local account it will show your username.

Well, actually the MSDN copy is the same as the retail copy.
They say MSDN to refer that i was downloaded from MSDN, and therfore it means it's the original Microsoft ISO.

My sign up on there was a success, it only asks for your make and model of your PC and the date you bought it (which you can make up ;)) - there doesn't appear to be any actual verification.

You're right. I just did the same thing and I got a confirmation with a number and everything. It still seems a little wierd, though -- well, not really when you consider that Micro$haft's strategy since day one is to have Windoze on as many computers as possible, regardless of how they got there. Let's see what happens. BTW, on how many computers does the key they give you work? What happens if you ugrade your system or for whatever reason  need to reformat?

Not surprisingly, to do all this I had to use their cheap crap excuse of a browser (a.k.a., Internet Explorer). I hate it with a passion! Their site just gave me error messages with Firefox.

Incidentally, despite what I wrote above there is still no certainty this will go through. Accordingly, based on Nawab and the Chief's great reviews, I want to go ahead and install 8 ahead of time. Can anyone tell me:

a) Can any version of 8 be simply installed over 7 without having to do a fresh install? I remember when I upgraded from XP to 7-64, the only thing that worked was a fresh.

b) I'm seeing there's an MSDN version. What difference is there between it and regular Pro or Enterprise? I looked up the acronym but it doesn't tell me much of anything.

I guess I'll have to check with full-packs.com for a non-banned serial number, or maybe even a KMS server that's not down. I know for certain that someday there'll be another Daz loader for 8, but we're not there just yet.

@Blade - if you think Win-8 is worth it, is it possible for you to order it for $14.99 and avoid this headache of KMS servers being down or  blacklisted serial numbers? If not or in the mean time, check out what's on full-packs.com (http://full-packs.com), these guys have updated info on Win-8 and its activations.

@Nawab - before even checking out the activation thing, please let me know what flavor of Win-8 you installed and if you were able to install it over Win-7 without having to reformat. I think this isn't possible with Enterprise, only with Pro. In the event you didn't do a fresh install, did you boot from CD (or USB flashdrive) or did you simply run the setup.exe file from Win-7?

I don't fully understand what difference there is between the MSDN version and the one without the acronym.
Title: Re: Windows 8 Support
Post by: The Nawab on August 30, 2012, 04:08 AM
It's The Enterprise Version. Yeah. I Had To Re-Format My Computer. As I Believe A Fresh/New/Clean Install Is Good For Windows. I Tried Both, The USB And The DVD. Once With Professional I Used A USB, It Was A Success. Just Removed Professional Because Phone Activation Wasn't Working On That. And Then I Burned A DVD Disc For Enterprise. There Is No Difference Between The MSDN Version And The WZOR's Leaked Version.

Hey, if you like your name, why not just put it on your computer? I just don't like my name, sadly changing it at this juncture would involve an unbelievable amount of red tape. BTW, I also like Nawab. Just a quick question - in Win8 can you remove the name from the Metro desktop? On W8 desktop screenshots I see it there in the upper right hand corner - I just don't know if it's removable.

I still don't know when or how to jump on the Win8 bandwagon. To my knowledge at this time there is no reliable activation method. I just heard the $14.99 price with the fake computer is simply an upgrade requiring your legal Win7 key. I also believe W8 will be marketed at $70 until January 31. I honestly think there'll be a Daz Loader for W8 by then, if not I'll have to bite the bullet.

Have you been able to even get a copy of this file? The download link they gave is for a site which makes Rapidshare look extremely generous. According to their screenshots, the activator doesn't even ask for a kms server. I'm thinking this thing probably searches for them.

I haven't installed W8 just yet either, although that situation might change in a few days. I do know for a fact that you do NOT have to live with the Metro UI if you don't like it. A simple click will bring you back to the classic desktop mode. Not only that, but on Digital Life they even have a link for a proggie called "classic menu" which basically puts an end to the Metro UI almost entirely.

I haven't seen or played with Metro just yet, but from what I've heard it's nothing more than overgrown icons on different pages of the desktop. Some (such as weather) are live, but even so W7 has something like that -- they're called Gadgets.

Title: Re: Windows 8 Support
Post by: humbert on October 05, 2012, 08:51 PM
For You windows guru guys, one simple question :-\
Is it worth at all to jump to w-8?

ABSOLUTELY! I was able to obtain a MAK key that still had some activations left on it, so I activated by phone. This OS is great! It's fast, stable and it just plain rocks! You can even ditch the Metro UI entirely if you don't like it. I switch back and forth from Metro to standard desktop - all done by simply hitting the Windows key once. I still have quite a bit to learn about it, but so far I have no plans to return to Win7.

I suppose my only complaint is that for some reason, if you use the Administrator account (as I do), it won't let you open the Metro apps that came with the OS. I checked them out using another account I created just to see them. I personally didn't like any except for the weather app, so for me this isn't much of a problem. When it installed IDM it warned me that with the Administrator account it wouldn't take over downloads from the browser. However, this appears to be only in IE, if you use Firefox or any non-IE based browser that won't happen.

Guys, upgrades are an inevitable fact of lift, and this one is well worth it. Just go for it.

BTW - if you're having trouble activating, be advised - Win8 will just nag you and put a watermark on your desktop, but it will never stop working. These nags can be removed with a little proggie called "on the seas". You can use 8 forever until you solve the activation problem, you just won't be able to use the cloud services and there are some tweaks you can't perform.

Can I be saucy  :-[ and ask one more question regarding W8!

Which version to use?  Asking because I am not sure. Find to many of it? Some of them have "N" as suffix! What thats mean? I do not find that Ultimate exist at all, so which one is successor of that version.

Hmm...to make story short, and avoid spending Your time in explanation :) ...please, just type which one to install?

Thank You

@kokot22
Let me see - you're saying you activated copies of Pro and Enterprise,  and  now you're looking for a key that'll work for Core, is that not right? Let's say you tried to activate Core and failed because the phone wouldn't upset your key. Did you clean out that bad key before making another attempt to activate using another key? I'm assuming you did, but if not let me know and I'll show you how.

@fanjo
I will be more than happy to help and to see that none of you have to go through this business of reformatting 3 times over (as I did) until I finally got it right. In fact, my previous comment regarding the Metro apps was mistaken - they are great and so is the Metro IU once you know how to use. I made many mistakes but I've learned from them. Let me give you guys a few tips:

1) Always get off the internet when installing. If you don't it will hound you endlessly until you open a Microsoft account, then your computer becomes password protected and the whole thing becomes a big hassle. Add to this that the phone activation option will probably not be present. As soon as you're activated, then reconnect the internet.

2) Don't make the mistake I made of using the Administrator account. Doing so offers hardly any advantage over using a local account with administrator status. Win 8 is OK with this and now your Metro apps will work great.

3) DO NOT use any registry cleaner except the one in Ccleaner. Doing so will tear the system apart, simply because nobody has yet written a Win8 one yet. Both Ccleaner (the latest one) and BleachBit are safe.

If you don't already have one, open up a Microsoft account at outlook.com (different from your local account) and use it to log in to those apps that require it. One login into any of the Metro apps works forever. This morning I was browsing the Store and saw no less than 99 free apps, not to mention paid apps that are less than $5 if you really need it.

I'm including at attachment covering all the Windows 8 keyboard shortcuts. IE will view MHT and so will Firefox is you have its unMHT add-on installed. You can do as I do and get Total  Commander and put it's HTML viewer add on - it's awesome for MHT.

One more thing - unless you've got a very old system and less than 4 GB of memory, definitely get the 64-bit version. It beats 32-bit any day of the week.

Post by: humbert on October 10, 2012, 08:25 PM
i dont undertand your topic
i want activate windows 8 core but i dont know how
cos all activator via kms servers not working

I've seen some activators on the torrents, but as far as I know there is no magic bullet just yet. It will come, only not right now. There are 2 big problems with using KMS servers. One is that these servers are up for a very limited time and often finding one becomes an ordeal. Even if you did, your activation will expire in 6 months, meaning you'd have to either rearm with another KMS server or pray that an equivalent of Daz Loader is out.

The only truly reliable method of activating is obtaining a MAK (multiple activation key) that still works and using phone activation. MAKs are bought by large companies who can use it to activate maybe 1000 PC's. Inevitably many of these end up on the internet, which is where your search begins. Why it is that phone activation works and internet activation doesn't is beyond my comprehension.

Here's what you should do. Let's suppose you go out there and find some 10 keys that are specifically for Core. Now you activate by phone. I'm under the impression you've already done that, if not let me know I'll give you more information about it. If the event your attempt at phone activation failed, all you do is change the key. To do so, bring up the command prompt as admininstrator and type slmgr /ipk XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX, with the XXX's representing the other activation key. Again go to Activate by Phone and you'll notice the numbers above the blocks will be different (reboot if not). Pick up the phone and make another attempt. Do this over and over until you hit the target. I realize this is a pain, but if you succeed you're activated forever, and it doesn't even matter if the key you used went invalid 5 minutes after you called.

Also - Windows 8 might nag you endlessly to activate, but it will keep running forever without shutting down. There are some things you won't be able to do until you're activated, only I'm not sure what they are. With the on-the-seas.exe program that's on the torrents you can get rid of the nag and watermark. This will hold you until you can activate. There is no need to go back to Win7 because of this situation.

Guys, go for Windows 8 ASAP. As more time passes those keys that are on the net are just accumulating activations fom other guys who are using this method, which for now is the only one that actually works.

Never mind got it. is v 9300 the RTM product? Also is it better to sign up with a local account?

It all depends on the individual. If you sign up with a Microsoft account, when you turn your system on you must enter a password because just about everything is synced with their servers, including your Windows settings. If you have no problem with this, then that's what you do. Otherwise, the only things that sync are e-mail, calendar and some game scores if you play Metro games. No password is needed on bootup and everything else stays on your local computer.

Personally I'm paranoid about the cloud and I don't like entering a password when I turn my computer on. Naturally someone else might think differently.

BTW if you don't like cloud syncing and prefer a local account, get off the internet when you install Win8, otherwise it'll hound you endlessly to use a Microsoft account.

I totally agree! Despite this I do strongly urge you to get on the Windows 8 bandwagon. Once you understand W8 it you'll see it's terrific! Feel free to ask me any questions, I've become an expert at it the hard way  ;).

As for syncing, always use a local account. Use the calendar app only to check dates. Don't put down items such as [for example] doctor's visits because you'll find that info all over Microsoft's servers. You know how a mail app works, so using theirs doesn't really matter. Apps such as news, sports, weather, stocks etc don't matter either. The gaming app and almost all the Metro games are synced, but that doesn't matter because you'd open an account on xboxlive with a strange name and no personal data with all sharing blocked. Who would even know (or care) that you're lousy at solitaire?  :) ;D

I only hope that after the 26th this phone-activation scam that Microsoft is purposely carrying out won't just go away. As I've mentioned often before, this is one more sneaky way M$ has established to get Windows into as many computers as possible regardless of whether that person paid for it.

Well, been running Win 8 now for over 24 hours and got most of the basics down. Found an activator that seems to work or it says its activated. Mostly what I see on the web is people really don't like change they like their little rut they live in. running X64 Pro and really like it.  But would really like to see Daz or someone that I know of create a activator.
As for Microsoft they really don't care about single use users running their software for free, they hunt down the large companies that like to buy one copy and run it on 200 plus machines and bust them. All we do is give them bragging rights in how many people are using their software in their ads.

As of this moment I'm not sure what Maher intends to do regarding Windows 8. Knowing him, he won't put his official seal on anything unless all the i's are dotted and all t's are crossed. At this moment the only activation fix is using a KMS server, which will get you by for 180 days.

My suggestion is to go to one of the many torrent sites and pick up a copy of Win8. Activate using the KMS method. You can bet that another Daz loader will be around before the 6 months are up. This is what I plan to do with my laptop, which is the only computer I didn't activate with the phone activation racket Microsoft invented. As we all know, that was designed from the beginning to end on October 26th.

If you then get Windows Media Center, Microsoft will give you a key for it that works permanently. You can find more information on forums.mydigitalife.info (http://forums.mydigitalife.info).

Just about all torrent sites on the planet have it available for download, along with probably 10600 activators. It's gotten to the point where the activators that don't work are in the minority.

No need for that. Go to your favorite torrent site and do a search for Windows 8. Believe me, you'll get tons of hits. Go for Win8 Pro - 64bit if you don't have a very old system. While you're at it, look at what people say about the activators and download several. One is bound to work - if not all of them.

I never needed to do this, but from what I've been reading if you do a successful 180-day KMS activation, you can activate for life by going to Microsoft's site and requesting Window Media Center. They'll give you a free serial number which will take out the 180 day limitation. But hurry - this ends in January.

Keep in mind that for Windows or any OS, E: is a partition and not a physical drive. The only reason most of us equate them is that most of the time the partition on there takes up 100% of the physical drive.

Assuming this is indeed the case, then tell us how E: is connected. Is it USB, SATA or what? Also, the fact that you're using an SSD is transparent to the motherboard and Windows.

The activator unlock personalisation and activate windows PERMANENTLY!!!!
You culd update windows8 and use activator again it just works!!
Trust me I try every torrent and format my computer more then 15 times and this is the only combination that work perfectly
Torrent files are attached...

I'm sure it works. So do a centillion (10600) other activators out there. Bill Gate$ made sure of that. It's precisely because of this strategy that the man has $100 billion in his pocket. This is even more important with Windows 8 because Micro$haft is betting all it's chips on it.

I activated 2 of my computers with one of those strange pirated keys on the torrent sites. It was before October 26th and all I had to do is place a phone call to Micro$haft's automated phone activation. The laptop came later. I used on of those bizarre activators on TPB and it worked. I picked it at ramdom.

BTW, if you installed Windows 8 but had no way to activate it, you could have simply done a reset as opposed to reformatting.

From my experience activators work only for this ISO files

Oh no! My laptop which was activated with one of the tons of activators out there. The copy of Windows 8 and the activator were selected purely at random. It's been several months and it's still working perfectly.

It's simply impossible with so many copies of Windows 8 and so many activators out there that only your copy gets activated. Sure, there are bound to be ISO's or activators that are faulty, but all of them except yours??

if you only use notepad or minesweeper it's enough. You'll be down-and-out with ram eating programs only. If you are making videos its clearly insufficient. Still You'd better stay with windows 7 for it might be lighter. if you are in paris these days I have a spare corsair 2 gb so-dimm Im selling for a few euros.

You can get away with 2GB on Windows 8 as long as you stick to the 32bit version. If you've got 4GB you'll be alright with either version. Also, definitely put in as much memory as you can afford, just not more than 4GB if you intend to stick with 32bit.

I've also noticed than Windows 8 actually runs better on older and lower memory systems then Win 7.

Hello there,
I appreciate the support by Maher, Humbert and all others who help people here, thank you.

I've setup Windows 8 on two machines, and the two do not work now.
Both were activated using KMS.
One stopped working after doing an update i guess.
the other stopped working as soon as I linked it to a Microsoft account.

the two do not boot, i get a blank screen, then the pc automatically restarts.

is there a way to restore them?, i guess they were locked because they were not genuine and microsoft detected that.
the funny thing is after what happened, even windows 7, wich is dual boot along with Win8, lost it's crack, and i had to re-apply the Win7 Loader again.

is there a way to restore them without the need to re-install,
if not, what should i avoid to get into this again.

thanks again!

AndroMandy - is it possible for you to boot into the safe mode? If so, you can reset W8 and bring it back to how you originally had it. You can even do this from your bootable W8 DVD or flashdrive. If so, repeat the procedure until you find the problem.

There are tons of activators out there, but honestly I don't think they caused the crash.

Call it "activation" or whatever, the bottom line is it will work! There are tons of "activators" (or whatever you want to call them) out there, almost all will do the job. Many of the ones that require rearming will even rearm automatically every 6 months or so. My 100% pirated laptop is fully functional after 4 months, not even a sneeze.

I too have Linux (Mint 14 Cinnamon) on a partition on my 2nd hard drive. When I want to boot into Linux, I simply hit F8 at bootup so the boot menu will come up. The problem is simple lack of support, at least compared to Windows. Off the top of my head I can think of 3 things I do where I must use Windows. I know Mint has an emulator, but frankly if I already have Windows, I see no need to use one.

One indicator of an "old PC" is one that still has a single core processor. Dual core or higher has no problem with Windows 7 or 8. How long has it been since anyone made a single core CPU? My laptop is about 5 years old. It has a T6600 Intel Dual Core, 2.2 gHZ. I run Windows 8 on it and so far I've never had a problem - in fact I'm noticing Windows 8 runs faster and better than Windows 7 on it.

yesterday i installed Win 8 x32 evaluation, on pc evey thing is good, but when i shut down pc, the power on light on pc is still on, i plugged of the power switch, when i plugged it again, the lights or now on again. while on xp & 7 lights are on only when pc is on.
i installed win 8 just for fun, 7 is my most favourite windows.

Strange. If you shut down everything should also turn off. Don't you just turn the power off with the switch on the surge protector, as I do? Certainly if did that and turned it back on, it won't know anything about Windows 8.

What computer do you have that prompted you to use the 32bit version? Even on a slow 64bit compatible system, W8 runs better than W7. I know that because it's like that on laptop.

I don't know exactly what you mean by "untouched" but I do know this - the vast majority of W8 copies you see on there will work. There are also about 10600 activators, and most of them work.

Do yourself a favor and sign up for a free account on the Pirate Bay. You don't need one to leech anything, but you do need one to ask questions, leave messages and maybe upload something (not required).

And speaking of torrent sites, what's with h33t?

Quote
Torrent site H33t has been down for a while, after both its .com and .eu domains were seized. The site has officially moved on to a domain of the island of Tonga, in the Pacific Ocean.

The new H33t.to has been available since October 16, but the tracker is currently offline as the site’s owner says some work needs to be done before it goes back to into use.

“I am holding h33t offline until the latest DNS update is fully propagated, she will be back within 48 hours,” a message reads.

That means the site should become available any time now, at the latest in the next few days if things do not work out as planned.

H33t.com domain got seized back in September and the site moved to .eu a few days later. On September 28 the European domain stopped working as well.

@to jastreb or whoever wrote this: As I see it, our friends at h33t are doing something wrong. Off the top of my head I can name no less than 5 torrent sites which have been up forever and remain up. Clearly these other sites are doing something to cover their tracks. I just opened 2 of them in another tab. Flagfox says they're hosted in Europe, but honestly I don't think that's the case. In the mean time I've seen h33t's screen many times - hopefully one day they'll get back on track soon.

@tichuan -> Installing Windows 8 is the easy part. The more difficult part is activating it. Take a look at this link (http://7pmtech.com/threads/mega-pack-keys-all-windows-and-offices-online-and-offline-activation.5227/). Not only will you find keys but a way to activate it by phone. Check it out an let me know.

@gujjar -> When I first looked at Windows 8.1 several weeks ago I didn't like it too much. I found it a little too "cloudy" (dependent on the cloud) and hard to configure. I'll also be the first to tell you that there's a lot I don't know about it. I'm about to give this thing another look. If I can activate it by phone and have a hard time with it, I might back the whole thing up and restore Windows 8.

If there is one thing I know about computers and other technology, it's that upgrades are inevitable and generally not optional.

Title: Re: Windows 8 Support
Post by: humbert on November 02, 2013, 10:59 PM
@tichuan -> it's not so much that the activation method by phone didn't work, it's the fact that the key you used might have been blacklisted. The good thing is you can check those sites on a daily basis and try your luck on newly posted keys. You might be able to activate before it goes bad.

I for one am not in any real hurry. You can bet borrowed money that in no time at all you'll see 5000 activators on TPB and other sites. I believe gujjar just posted one.

gujjar -> what I find irritating and I'm glad it's gone is that stupid old start menu. I remember with Windows 7 and before, when you wanted to launch a program you'd click Start, then scroll up, then left, pick folder and go up, and down, then left again until FINALLY you got to your app. Now with the start screen, simply hit the Windows key and single click on a tile. All this plus the start screen is highly configurable so you see only what you use. The start menu is dead - GOOD RIDDANCE! I detest it.

system is completely off with LCD, & when i press the power button, it does nothing. but after some minute when i press power bitton again it start normally.

what is the problem????????????????

I think this may be a power problem.
What about the electricity at your house?!
Sometimes, the Power supply doesn't start until it detects enough power. If the current is weak, it doesn't start... If you're already running the PC, it'll shutdown.
It happened with my cousin once.

I don't think so. One thing I did was locate the lnk file on some of them. Double-clicking doesn't so anything. You gotta keep something in mind - for Windows 8, the desktop is just one more metro app, whereas the real boss is the start screen.

@shhnedo (Nvidias own driver) @iih (Nvidias own driver)+auto updates by Nvidias.
Yes, in this case i agree with shinedo, i have install nvidia with they own driver it work for me,
ie mine uses the old version nvidia G210 Geforce 1GB Ram memory DDR3 to drive 20inch LG LCD i get the optimum display resolution 1360x768 pix
refresh rate 60-75Hz and i get auto updates Nvidia on every new updates available
if i use by default (windows own) it doesn't and no Nvidia control panel on my desktop (to pop-ups this -> right click on desktop).
This Nvidias panel control is neccesary for me, to setup optimum 3d Graphic Nvidia
this specal for my sister she play the games ie Audition ONLINE to have optimum or
maximum FPS rate. because Audition ONLINE, i don't know other similar Games that send FPS control, if we Play Auditon with under FPS say 60 FPS then your Games in LAG condition. FPS (Frame Per seconds).
with Nvidias control panel are possible we adjust FPS rate up to 350 (depend on your Ram memory and VGA card ram memory)
my test stuff {Intel Core i7 3770K, Mobo ASUS Sabertooth Z77, RAM Patriot Intel Extreme 16 GB PC12800}

@usmangujjar (windows own default driver)
does you have Nvidia control panel option on Desktop? (right click on Desktop)
does you get Nvidia auto updates? If yes for this two questions, I should follow
and try to do like you did. IF NOT, i think you're doing something wrong.
All this just for our reference if we are using the uptodate windows ie windows 8
is not really neccesary to install 3rd party drivers because it was include by windows.
or better we ask someone else who have the same issue.

@iih @shadow
I get all those described by learning to do it correctly and my experience go to the Nvidias site and then select the model,
in accordance with the vga card is used, operating system, then do download that's it.
I'm not so clearly with usman
gujjar for his pc use its orientation
for me games and office work as well as graphics, and i don't know

I actually tried mining when it was far up, but I didnt understand how my coins would end up in the wallet. So I quit.

Hmmm.. that's interesting. As I understand it, somebody comes up with a complicated math problem and gives it to all the miners, and whoever solves it first wins - they do this with their GPU's. They pay the winner in Bitcoins, only I'm not too sure how many. I've tried to educate myself on the matter as much as possible, but there are still a few things I don't understand. For example, I wonder who it is that comes up with these math problems for miners to solve? Another thing I don't understand is why is there such a huge price difference between the different exchanges when you buy? Should you just go with the lower bid or what??

They have now come up with some board that calcs super efficiently, and thus, dropped the price of 280x(my graphics card) a lot, so if you're looking for a somewhat cheap graphicscard with a lot of horsepower, look for a 280x pre-used, price used here is 1800SEK, (250usd?

I actually tried mining when it was far up, but I didnt understand how my coins would end up in the wallet. So I quit. Also I dont think anti aliasing does very much and it often takes plenty on the cpu. Also, Yes now after a while I think I should have gone for a 270x instead just because of sweetspot

Hmmm.. that's interesting. As I understand it, somebody comes up with a complicated math problem and gives it to all the miners, and whoever solves it first wins - they do this with their GPU's. They pay the winner in Bitcoins, only I'm not too sure how many. I've tried to educate myself on the matter as much as possible, but there are still a few things I don't understand. For example, I wonder who it is that comes up with these math problems for miners to solve? Another thing I don't understand is why is there such a huge price difference between the different exchanges when you buy? Should you just go with the lower bid or what??

This is an interesting topic and definitely the thing of the future. Who else knows about this here?

You could try litecoin mining.At first it is hard  you have to sync blockchains with your LTC wallet and after syncing it join a pool create a account and all transactions are store in your created pool's account that is your account and start mining.
Syncing block-chains is better if u download bootstrap.dat via their torrent which does 80% of your syncing job and rest 20% syncing occurs pretty fast take care that your select your LTC data directory as D drive or another partition which puts more load on windows which ultimately leads tremendous to slow performance.
I'm mining with radeon 5750 @128-160kh/s with intensity 14 and use cgminer for mining.Refer LTC website for more info.

If you went through all this and earned yourself a few litecoins, what do you do with them? Who accepts them other than TPB for donations? Also, the simple fact that you earned some using only an ultra-old and slow HD-5750 says a lot - you're one of the very few mining them. Imagine mining Bitcoins with that! You won't earn any ever.

Here, you can get a 280X for 1000SEK which is like 150~ USD (Secondhand)
So I recommend getting 2x280x. I have 1, the only issue is a minor artifact that keeps popping up in my webbrowser, not in games, not in anything but in the webbrowser.

Amd recommends to clean  previous remnants of drivers before installing their new ccc 14.4 for each driver update which increases driver stability.You know how win registry works & how messy it gets if any one value changes from 0 to 1 & vice versa.

You are terribly mistaken! Honestly, did you even try to learn something about the start screen, or did you simply assume it was too difficult? if you tried to learn it you'd realize it's the best thing MS ever did! To launch a program, all you do is hit the Windows key once and single-click on a huge hard-to-miss tile. The old start menu, by comparison, is a real pain and not easy to use - to even find your icon requires moving left, right, left and right...  Also, the start screen is highly configurable. You put only the tiles you use, group them any way you want, and hide the ones you don't use. As of Windows 8.1 you can resize them too.

Also -> I refer to the start screen above only as an app launcher. I do not like the Metro interface nor do I use any Metro apps.
Title: Re: Windows 8 Support
Post by: scarface on August 09, 2014, 03:48 PM
For humbert and for those who don't like the metro interface
http://uptobox.com/feq7zi3axrhk

Fxxk Metro disables Metro completely when it is executed. It needs to be noted that this is only valid for the active session.
The simplest way to make it run every time you logon automatically is to use Win+R to open the Run box. Type "shell:startup" to bring up the startup folder. Just copy FxxkMetro.exe to this location so it runs every time you logon. You will see a black command prompt window open up for an instant and then it will disappear. There is nothing else to it. No system try icon or anything like that. To remove it from startup, simply remove the file from the startup folder.
Title: Re: Windows 8 Support
Post by: humbert on August 09, 2014, 07:51 PM
The only thing I do like about the Metro interface is the start screen. I don't really care for any Metro apps, and I do agree the interface is more for phones and tablets than anything else. MS is promising to allow you to fully resize Metro apps and allow them to run on the desktop. That's a welcome improvement.

What I detest to the bone is the old start menu.

Exactly my point! The start menu is a nightmare. Finding your icons entails all kinds of searches with your mouse to see where it is. Oh, and be careful to click the right icon once you find it.
Title: Re: Windows 8 Support
Post by: robertmo on August 14, 2014, 12:18 PM
Actually I only meant the wrong order in some programs folders that were designed to have subfolders in previous windows versions.

Start menu in win 8 is ok when you order programs by categories. This way it is very similar to start menus in previous windows versions and i think even better as you don't have to navigate long to access your program.

If you have problems finding programs on the desktop like start menu, well, it is up to you to remember where things were, like it was on desktops in previous win versions.
Title: Re: Windows 8 Support
Post by: humbert on August 14, 2014, 01:44 PM
What I meant was that in order to find and execute the exe file, you have to click the start orb, then up, then right, then up and down until you find it. Of course you can put icons on your desktop, but often getting at them means having to minimize what you're working on and bring it back later. The ideal way is the start screen - hit Winkey and you've got huge tiles staring you in the face. Single click instead of double click like a desktop icon. And of course, you can configure the tiles any way you want - put them in groups, make them smaller, turn off live tiles, etc. On my start screen, for example, I have NO live tiles at all.

Hey everyone, I wanted to install the latest release of Maher's Windows 8.1 x64 on a computer using USB with UEFI enabled (legacy boot disabled). The problem is that UEFI only boots from FAT32 and the maximum file size for FAT32 is 4 GB. I read something somewhere that the big file install.wim can be split into smaller parts which may solve this problem. Please take this into consideration when working with the next release. Thanks.

Post by: Vasudev on December 19, 2014, 02:27 AM
shhnedo-> will those rollup images contain updates from day one to current updates?
Title: Re: Windows 8 Support
Post by: shhnedo on December 19, 2014, 06:01 AM
^ Most probably. I mean there's no point in rolling out updated iso's if we're gonna have to update them all over again. Moreover, they're probably gonna be preparing retail DVDs with those images.
Title: Re: Windows 8 Support
Post by: Vasudev on December 19, 2014, 07:57 AM
Probably it could contain only updates released in December for every supported OS be it x32 or x86-64 in all localizations.

Amazing work! The latest November update was just fine. In the mean time Microsoft released an official MSDN unofficially called "update3" available since 15 December 2014.
We are waiting with interest future 2015 maher releases based on this latest winter update.

Wrong. That's why the Nov2014 update is called "rollup". Plus, it says clearly in the page I provided that the Nov2014 rollup includes all updates since the release of the last one in Apr2014.
Quote
This November update rollup also includes all previous updates since the previous image update in April 2014.

question to all; for performance, Win7 is more better or 8.1 (with all updates)?
There are a number of cases where 8.1 outperforms 7(compared on the same hardware ofc).
Games, for example, have better driver optimization on 8.1.

Vasudev & Shhnedo: what are you saying? I need a latest W8.1 iso, with updates till Dec2014.
What I am saying is that the Nov2014 update announced by MS is like a service pack - it contains all previous updates up to november 2014. Same thing Maher's doing. If you want a Dec2014(most probably by Maher), you can get only the x86 version as Maher stated he won't be doing a Dec x64 iso.

My question a couple of posts back was whether Maher will be using a November 2014 Rollup (Update 3) iso, or he will continue using the current one.

I know your answer, everytime you prefer Newest. In some days you will say win10 is better.

Not true. The simple fact that something is newer doesn't make it better. For example, I took a look at Office 2013 and didn't like it, so I deleted it and went back to Office 2010. Similarly, when Vista came out I never installed it - too many bad reviews. I decided to stick with XP until Win 7 was released.

Just finished setting up an 8.1 Enterprise x64 with Update 3(the november rollup). Runs good and doesn't increas boot times as you install drivers. Safe to say the U3 iso's are a good base for Maher's releases.

Hi,
I'm getting this same error when Setup.exe attempts to launch the Win 8.1 installation from the DVD. I can't proceed with the installation as it says that autorun.dll cannot be loaded. Do I need a new version of msvcrt.dll? I'm trying to install Win 8.1 on a lap top with Win XP SP3 installed. Why wouldn't the install disk have its own copy of msvcrt.dll to avoid conflicts with old dlls? Thanks.

Please don't tell me you're trying to start a windows installation through the .exe file on the dvd under windows.
You have to reboot the machine, set it up so it boots from your optical drive first(or from a usb device if you're using a flash stick), boot from the respective device and start the installation from there(the way it's meant to be done).

Title: Re: Windows 8 Support
Post by: humbert on March 27, 2015, 09:57 PM
Pardon my ignorance but what are wim files all about? On my drive C:  there is a directory called "recovery" with a large .wim file inside it. I don't know why it's there - my system is configured for NO restore points and don't use any of Windows backup or recover "features". I boot from USB and create an Acronis image every few days. Doing this has saved my life on a few occasions.
Title: Re: Windows 8 Support
Post by: shhnedo on March 28, 2015, 04:54 AM
The install.wim is basically an image of windows itself, compressed to an acceptable size for installation media.
I honestly don't know how you ended up with a recovery folder on your C:\ drive. Here's mine:

You can probably delete it if you boot from some Linux distro. I'm doing stuff like this with Kaspersky Rescue Disk.

@Vasudev - As for deleting the C:\Recovery directory, what I do know is that once I had to reset my copy of Windows. When I did it asked for the original ISO, from which it did all the work. It's almost as if the .wim file was never used at all. Hopefully I won't have to do another reset. Just to be sure I have no problems, I have an old backup waiting.

@shhnedo - Thanks for the tip, and sure enough it worked. I could swear I had seen that hack somewhere before and probably even used it. If so then I forgot. :)

off topic> if any one don't want extra partition of 100MB with W7 and 350MB with W8.0+, he should boot computer with Live Windows XP, 7 or other utility, create required partition, than start Windows installation as normal without deleting this created partition, just format.

You can do that through the windows installer itself. Shift+F10 durring "Install Now" screen takes you to command prompt and you can create as many partitions as you like.

You can do what Shhnedo suggested, or you can also boot up Hirens or Parted Magic and make the changes. Despite all this, is making the change really worth the effort? 350 MB is nothing when you consider that probably the smallest drive you can get to day is a 64 GB SSD. Even if you find one, the price difference to a larger drive isn't worth it.

This is fixable. Go into the BIOS and disable secure boot. Some BIOSes also have support for legacy devices disabled by default. This too should be enabled.

I know this because on my new laptop I had to do all this. This is undocumented, so it took me a while to finally figure it out. I finally booted from USB, wiped the existing bloat-infested copy of Windows and installed Maher's copy.

I've known and I've enabled/disabled secure boot on many machines in order to boot a simple linux based antivirus usb(which is a dumb restriction). The problem comes when your BIOS has it FORCED enabled and you can't disable it. This is the kind of sh*t MS has to rethink, because very few people are willing to screw around with the BIOS and then reflash it just so they can disable secure boot.

Last I heard MS said it would allow PC manufacturers to allow disabling secure boot. The option would not be available on any of their Surface tablets. Please tell me:

1) Who is the manufacturer of that device where there was no option to disable secure boot? I want to make sure never to buy from them.

2) What exactly is the story with Windows 10? If I ran out and bought myself a new motherboard or laptop and wanted to put Windows 10 on it, could I do with the secure boot disabled the same way I did with Windows 8.1?

@shhnedo - What brand and model number is that computer that wouldn't all you to disable secure boot? Funny it's like that because Windows 10 isn't out yet.

@Fuj - Thanks for the link. From what I'm reading, disabling secure boot will be optional for OEM's who sell computers with Windows 10 preinstalled. If you do what most of us do (build the computer or buy an assembled system with no OS on it) you should be good to go, especially if you "bought" Windows 10 by itself. I don't know why I'm thinking market forces might force MS to hold off. We might be seeing ads that say (for example) buy an Asus ModelXXX - secure boot not locked! In short and based on what's always happened, this problem will not be as severe or people will find a fix. Never forget what Daniil says "People are like water, they find a way".

It's all in the screenshot. Doesn't matter what the model is, though. They probably just release the new bios with Secure Boot locked at Enabled by default. In order for me to turn it off I have to enable Legacy BIOS booting instead of UEFI.

You're saying this thing gives you the ability to enable CSM (Compatibility Support Module)? On my new lappie it's disabled by default. It was only after I enabled it that I was able to boot from USB, overwrite the bloat-infested copy it came with and install Maher's copy. I even remember I couldn't enable it until I first disabled secure boot. Took me a while to figure it out, this is carefully hidden from the docs. This setting must ALWAYS be enabled, unless of course you're loaning your computer and your BIOS is password protected to prevent unwanted intruders.

Are you familiar with Hiren's Boot CD or also known as HBCD?

To follow up on your post - DVD are yesterday's technology and are rapidly being replaced by ever larger and ever cheaper USB pendrives. Even SSD's are getting larger and cheaper - Samsung already gas a 850 EVO in 2 TB. And of course standard magnetic drives are one step away from free.

Are any of you old enough to remember floppy disks? At first they were state of the art, but soon enough you had to carry around 100 of them to copy or store just about anything. DVD's are almost in that situation

I have a DVD drive on my computer just for compatibility. I have no burning software installed, in fact I can't even remember the last time I burned a DVD, let alone a CD.

Its actually difficult to archive CDs to ISO especially when you have 30-40GB game CDs/Movies for future use.

thank you my friends for responding to my question.
i did use installation via usb, that is not the problem, installation with it is not strange to me.
i just asked because i did burned older version of 8.1 on dvd and it was the right size. ( i damaged it and wanted to burn newer just to have it on media and not to occupies hdd or usb) but with all of this updates it doesn't fit anymore.
i know that suggestions for usb are sound i i think that is the future but i still want to have one on media. is there a link or trusted torrent( on my pp) for downloading x64 which will fit on dvd. i still see torrents with updates(march 2015) with 3.6 to 4... gb.
i don't trust them and i wanted to find the unmodified version here. that is my problem, why is this one so big.
can you help me with smaller size or older version with less updates.
thanks

@volimfilm007-> You can download latest maherz release and remove un-needed features using WinReducer or Win Toolkit or NTLite.

Have you tested this yourself? If so, generally what kind of stuff does it allow you to remove? Most importantly, does it alert you if you try to remove an important part of the OS?

As a matter of fact i didn't test it on win 8.1, even if you remove system files on win 8.1 you can download it later from Ms server through DISM.

I refer to removal of system files that will cause the OS not to work. Downloading is impossible if the system won't even boot.

Won't Wintoolkit or similar warn while removing a certain system component and user can choose not to remove that component to ensure OS works.

That's what I'm trying to find out. As I see it, removing vital system files should not even be optional. Does it even warn you or what?

I toggle an option to "Protect system files" on Win Reducer

Well, I’m going to paste the answer found in an article:
If you are using Windows 8, it comes with the latest .NET Framework 4.5 version preinstalled.
You might face a problem while trying to run a program which requires .NET Framework 3.5 version. Windows 8 doesn't come with .NET Framework 3.5 version, but you can install it.

I keep telling people that upgrades are an inevitable fact of life. Despite this many people just hang on to what they know and will stick with it as long as they can. In my view the only justification for using old software is people stuck with ancient systems where an upgrade is financially impossible.

At work there's still windows 2003 servers active and handling very very important stuff.. and this is a super high security facility lol... I really wonder why they just dont migrate.. It wouldn't be that hard based on what it does..  Wish I was allowed to tell more.

If the hardware/software you have does what you want it to do, then obsolesence is a state of mind. Problems arise when newer software or hardware won't run on top of what you've got. If that's not happening then you're OK until it does.

You're right. Old OS's that are no longer updated are a prime target for hackers. All the more reason to keep updating, especially if a company's data is at risk.
