Chinese hackers have upgraded Vista Loader to version 2.1.2, with further enhancement in terms of OEM choices and improvement in terms of compatibility. Vista Loader is a crack for Windows Vista activation, where the software based loader emu is installed as boot loader to emulate BIOS with SLIC table of selected OEM ID into memory during system startup, and thus trick Windows Vista into believing that the BIOS is of genuine OEM product to achieve instant OEM activation.New features and improvements in Vista Loader v2.1.2:
Microsoft Product Activation has been cracked or circumvented on numerous occasions since it was introduced in 2001. In 2001, a UK security company called Bit Arts successfully managed to bypass product activation on Windows XP, while in 2003, volume license keys for Windows XP were leaked to the public, allowing users who had not purchased a volume license to the operating system to bypass activation. In 2009, several security flaws in Windows 7 were used by hackers to circumvent activation.
The only problem is that it says there's "3 days left" for activation. It's original Windows XP Professional OEM I should have product key and stuff somewhere around. But when I click "Yes" as in "Yes I want to activate now" it says everything's fine this machine is activated, go home and everything boots up properly. It's quite confusing. Well. Windows XP support is dead. I tried to crack it but cracks don't really seem to work for this, tried to edit registry WPAEvents but it also doesn't seem to work. If it's going to work like that forever (I mean force me to activate and then claim it's okay and boot then fine, I'm glad it boots up at all) but I have no idea what's gonna happen after those 3 days and if I actually need to bother with this right now as I don't really need to use this VM as long as physical machine is not dead. 2b1af7f3a8
