that's a pretty nice method to activating windows 7 on uefi enabled main boards. keep up the good work. love the blog theme and layout!

This did not work for me. The command prompt sequence worked fine, but after booting to the Windows 7 disk again, received the following : Windows cannot be installed to this disk. The selected disk has an MBR partition table. On EFI systems, Windows can only be installed to GPT disks.
