Activate Windows 7 Ultimate Efi


How to Activate Windows 7 Ultimate Efi




Windows 7 Ultimate Efi is a version of Windows 7 that supports the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI), a modern replacement for the legacy Basic Input/Output System (BIOS). UEFI offers faster boot times, better security, and more advanced features than BIOS. However, activating Windows 7 Ultimate Efi can be tricky, especially on newer computers that do not have the Compatibility Support Module (CSM) or legacy boot options. In this article, we will show you how to activate Windows 7 Ultimate Efi using different methods.

Method 3: Activate Windows 7 Ultimate Efi using UefiSeven




If you have a computer that does not support CSM or legacy boot options, you might encounter problems when installing or booting Windows 7 Ultimate Efi. This is because Windows 7 does not fully support UEFI and relies on legacy BIOS interrupt 10 (Int10h) during initial graphics initialization. On computers without proper legacy support, Windows 7 might freeze on 'Starting Windows' screen or fail with error code 0xc000000d.


To fix this problem, you can use UefiSeven, an EFI loader that emulates Int10h interrupts needed for booting Windows 7 under UEFI Class 3 systems. UefiSeven also contains a hack to enable screen output on hardwares that do not natively support 1024x768 as is needed by Windows Installer. To use UefiSeven, follow these steps:



  • Prepare a Windows 7 installation USB drive.



  • Rename bootx64.efi at (UsbDrive)\\EFI\\Boot\\ to bootx64.original.efi.



  • Unpack bootx64.efi from UefiSeven archive and copy it to (UsbDrive)\\EFI\\Boot\\.



  • Finish initial installation and wait for reboot prompt.



  • Power off computer.



  • Rename bootmgfw.efi at (HDD)\\EFI\\Microsoft\\Boot\\ to bootmgfw.original.efi.



  • Copy UefiSeven bootx64.efi to (HDD)\\EFI\\Microsoft\\Boot\\bootmgfw.efi using EFI shell.




You can also apply settings by placing UefiSeven.ini file in the directory containing the main efi file. Refer to the sample configuration file for available options.


Conclusion




Activating Windows 7 Ultimate Efi can be challenging, but not impossible. Depending on your situation, you can use one of the methods described above to activate your Windows 7 Ultimate Efi and enjoy its benefits. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to leave them below.
