First when we start the tool we see this window and OEM brand is automatically chosen, it does that by checking BIOS, manufacturer and others stuff.

We have the following buttons: 1) 2) 3) 4) 5) 6) 7) 8) 9) 10) 11) 12) Set Refresh explorer Clear Desktop Logon Custom AIO Tool Integrator Branding / Activation to setup Check for updates / Activation option Create ISO when done Apply Windows Loader

Below is an explanation of all the buttons/options

1. Set
This is the button you want to press if you just installed Windows 7 on your computer, easiest and fastest way to apply branding. You might want to change OEM-brand in the list by clicking the down arrow right next to the button

2. Refresh Explorer
Sometimes the UAP (User Account Picture) may not change when your new theme is applied, if it doesnt use this buttin and you should be good!

3. Clean
Best way to REMOVE ALL BRANDING is to use this button called clean, very selfexplanatory

4. Desktop
By pressing this button you can set wallpaper to stretch, fit, tile or center

5. Logon
This is very hand if you want to change your logon image, press this button, then ”Select”, find the wallpaper you want to have as logon image and press set

6. Custom
With this option you can set wallpaper, logon image, theme and ALSO the OEM info such as model, manufacturer, support phone etc, this will be visible when rightclicking ”My computer” and then Preferences. You can access preferences by clicking ”System” instead. Also there are two other options to either enable or disable user tile, this option is for users who cant change their UAP due to it being pre-installed, if you enable it you wont be able to set UAP from the control panel

7. AIO tool
With this option you are able to create a socalled Windows 7 AIO (All In One) By doing that you can have one (1) ISO/USB with all windows 7 editions instead of two (2), you can choose either copy to USB or create a ISO to be burned on DVD, you can also apply 64Bit recovery mode, OEM Branding and SLIC 2.1 Activation. Before doing that make sure to set label :)

8. Integrator
Integrating option lets you integrate drivers, language packs and updates to an image you mounted. First choose your folder where you copied W7 Installationfiles, then choose version (Any between 7 Starter to Ultimate or enterprise), then press mount. It will mount to the Tasks folder. After you simply choose what you want to integrate either single update, driver or a complete folder with them. Whenever you are done you have to unmount it by pressing ”Unmount” Commit option will save changes while discard will undo them.

9. Branding / Activation to setup
This will copy OEM branding to the W7 Installationfolder which you have copied to your computer or have on USB. You can also choose to copy SLIC 2.1 activation if you want. Either one or both.
