  1. This guide is to help you find an untouched copy of Windows, then install and aсtivate it on any PC. Be very cautious of any copy you find unless you KNOW it hasn't been tampered with, and NEVER try to aсtivate using tools from google.
  2.  
  3.  
  4. CTRL+F to search:   Aсtivation   Sеtup   Еducation   LТSC   Tеlemetry
  5.  
  6.  
  7. Windows 10 Еducation edition is a good choice for most users (see Еnterprise).
  8. Windows 7 users should consider switching to at least 8.1 (with Open-Shell), as updates are ending soon.

  16.     Downloading Windows 8/10
  17.  
  18.     For Windows 8.1 and 10, microsoft makes it easy to download them with their 'Media Creation Tool'.  The tool downloads and burns the installer directly to DVD or flashdrive:
  19.  
  20. microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows8
  21. microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10
  22.  
  23.  
  24.  
  25. To get ISOs instead:
  26.  
  27. Rg-adugard is a link generating site that allows you to download Windows 8.1/10 ISOs from microsoft.com.
  28. To access them go to   tb.rg-adguard.net   select your edition, click download, and it will start downloading from a temporary link at microsoft.com. To verify the download is coming from microsoft's domain, you can right click the started download and copy the link in Firefox, or click "Show All" in Chrome. You'll find most ISOs under "Windows(Final)".

  35.  
  36.     Enterprise
  37.  
  38.     Some Windows 10 settings are only available in Enterprise editions, like disabling Apps/Store, and the option to send the smallest amount of telemetry. Education edition is a great way to get all of these, as it is a fully functional version of Enterprise and includes all the same settings and features (except the buggy and limited ReFS filesystem). You can upgrade a normal copy of Windows to it by going to Settings > Update & Security > Aсtivation > Change product key
  39.  
  40. Then enter this generic sеtup key:   NW6C2-QMPVW-D7KKK-3GKT6-VCFB2
  41. To check that it worked, go to System (in Control Panel) and make sure Windows edition says Education. Then follow the steps under "Aсtivation" below.
  42.  
  43.  
  44. You can also get Education while installing one of the downloads above, by selecting "Windows 10 Education" when it asks you to choose an OS. The installer may skip this question if it detects a previous license. To force it to always prompt for a version, you can prepare a flashdrive as usual, then copy pastebin.com/1inZD54T into notepad, and save it as ei.cfg in the drive's "Sources" folder (set "Save as type" to "All Files").

  55. "0" is the minimum telemetry setting, and only works in Enterprise (including Edu & LТSC). Other versions of Windows will treat "0" as a "1". Be sure to ENABLE the "Allow Telemetry" policy before selecting a value.

  79. >>>LTSC:
  80.     LTSC (previously LTSB) is a minimal version of Enterprise intended for limited use devices like ATMs and kiosks that need consistency at all costs. Windows Update only provides basic updates for it, leaving out new components all other users get, which may impact OS behavior or prevent some software/drivers from working correctly. Windows Store/Cortana/Apps are also missing from LTSC. Regular Enterprise/Education let you turn these features on/off easily, and have the same level of telemetry control as LTSC. New updates and features are integrated into the next major release, but these only come out every 2-3 years and must be installed manually from a new ISO.  All other versions of Windows provide upgrades every 6 months, and allow you to delay them over a year.

  99.  
  100. Note: If you plan to aсtivate with Daz Loader, set your BIOS to legacy mode BEFORE installing Windows. KMS_VL_ALL can aсtivate Win 7 in GPT/UEFI mode, but only if you install Pro or Enterprise editions.

  145. Limit Services/Telemetry:   https://www.oo-software.com/en/shutup10  (Some changes cannot be reversed)
  146.  
  147.     Windows 10 receives major "Feature Upgrades" twice a year, which are important (in the long run) for staying current with new software and bug fixes, but tend to cause problems when they're first released. Thankfully Windows no longer performs these automatically as soon as they come out. In order to upgrade to the next version of Windows 10, you now have to manually click "“Download and install now”, otherwise you should stay on your current version until the end of support approaches, around 18 months after release. This gives them plenty of time to work out the bugs, and lets you easily skip over at least half these upgrades, while still getting everyday security/stability updates as usual. In Windows Enterprise you may need to set this delay manually by going into Settings > Update & Security > Advanced options, and deferring Feature Upgrades for 365 days.
  148.  
  149.  
  150.     Advanced users can also modify their copy of Windows 10 before install. MSMG Toolkit (of the the MDL forums) lets you add/remove almost any Windows component, including many services responsible for telemetry. It does not provide the special reduced telemetry option from Enterprise/Education, but can be used along with it. Regular updates do not undo these changes, but with Feature Upgrades you should use the tool on the latest ISO and upgrade from that. Keep in mind that modern Windows isn't designed to be broken up, and apps/components that seem like they shouldn't matter are often a requirement for everyday things to work. So it's better to apply changes sparingly, and try to test out as many features as you can early on. These limitations will exist with any tool that removes integrated parts of the OS, so most people find it easier and more reliable to just make changes within Windows.

If it doesn't work right off the bat, check to see if your Windows drive was installed in GPT mode, as that can sometimes interfere (to switch to MBR, enable Legacy Boot in BIOS then reinstall).

  219.     Safety Concerns
  220.  
  221.     The biggest mistake people make when installing Windows from the internet is trusting what random users, torrents, and websites claim is safe. Many people don't realize you're more likely to find an infected source than a good one. Luckily there are some easy ways to double check what you're getting.
  222.  
  223.     The malware in most copies of Windows is almost impossible to detect. The only sure way to know you have a clean copy is to confirm it's exactly the same as what microsoft released. This is actually very easy to do, using a short row of numbers called a checksum. As long as the file you download matches the SHA-1 checksum provided by a reliable source, you know what you have is identical to the original. Microsoft no longer releases these freely, but users with access to paid MSDN subscriptions still repost them:

  227. https://www.raymond.cc/blog/links-for-windows-7-sp1-iso-from-microsofts-official-distributer/
  228.  
  229.  
  230. When you've found a checksum number, you can compare it easily with tools like these:
  231.  
  232. http://www.softpedia.com/get/Security/Security-Related/MD5-and-SHA-1-Checksum-Utility.shtml#download
  233. http://www.igorware.com/hasher/download
  234. http://www.7-zip.org/   (via the Windows context menu)
  235.  
  236.  
  237.     Similarly, most legit activators have been repackaged with malware, including most of the top google results. While activators are generally closed source, and it's not possible to be 100% sure of their contents, your safest bet by far is to stick with the most reputable and community trusted sources, which have been hosted on the MyDigitalLife forums for several years. Checksums are provided here for convenience, but you should get into the habit now of verifying your software directly against its official source any time you have to download it somewhere else.

  241.  
  242.  
  243.  
  244.  
  245.     Reliability
  246.  
  247.     No updates have any impact on the real Daz loader in Windows 7, once it has been run successfully. It uses a very reliable method to inject Windows with a permanent activation and is very unlikely to ever break once used. The tools for Windows 8.1 and 10 are less ideal, as they work by convincing Windows you are part of a paid subscription, and require leaving a copy of the activator to wake up occasionally and change the end date. It is possible microsoft could do something in the future to disrupt this, but so far it has worked correctly as long as the activator is not removed.
