    Thanks LatinMcG and Carlos, sorry for delay I live in Italy.


    I don't know why but this morning netbook is booting without boot errors. Windows Loader 2.2.2 is installed with default advanced options.
    I rebooted 3 times already and no errors
    Mystery!


    With emergency flashing you mean Alt+F2? (I suppose so because it's called EZ flash in boot screen)
    Yesterday I read about different ways pressing

    -Ctrl+Home+Power
    -Ctrl+Home+Power+Fn
    -Ctrl+Home+Power without battery
    -Unplugging/plugging something on the mobo (didn't try)

    but wasn't able to trigger any of them

    Boots errors are back but now when they appear they sometimes behave differently, they show and go away without me having to push the space bar several times like I did yesterday. Sometimes they don't show at all.

    I find today's lack of consistency disturbing.

    I forgot to mention I have configured a map to a network drive, I have no idea if that matters and I can't see a difference unplugging the ethernet cable.

    I'll keep it as it is for now, sorry for taking over the thread.

    I'm afraid my knowledge about BIOS mods and flashing is also very limited.

    Thank you s1ave77, BobSheep and LatinMcG!

    I followed s1ave77's instructions.

    -I uninstalled the Loader
    -I flashed modded BIOS. I used EZ Flash and I got the "The BIOS update is finished" message. Rebooted and Windows started!

    I have noticed a difference between the normal BIOS update and the modded BIOS update

    The normal BIOS update did
    Erasing...
    Programming...
    Erasing Boot Block...
    Programming Boot Block...

    The modded BIOS update did only
    Erasing...
    Programming...

    Maybe because it was the same BIOS revision number, only from nonmodded to modded. I don't know.


    I opened Daz's Loader but I didn't get offered anything...
    I didn't know what to do so I simply installed the loader again.

    I tried to reboot several times and I didn't get the boot errors anymore...

    Do you think it's working?

    The loader application would of installed just the certificate and key, so you wouldn't of been asked to reboot

    You shouldn't see any boot issues ever again.

    As I already wrote, the firmware bootloader/bootblock will be updated only if it needs to be updated. The modded BIOS has the same bootblock version as the original, so it will be skipped at flash time.

    In other words: A BIOS/UEFI flash will only update the changed parts (in blocks, as that's how flash memory is organized). All unnecessary writes will be prevented as every Erase-Programming cycle will degenerate flash memory a bit.

    referring to this post, would it be possible to use an empty file acting as a flag for the loaders installer to mark the boot partiton manually?
    would be nice since this way it reduces the need for a physical mbr-type drive to the bare minimum of 100MB-system-reserved, maybe even less and the loader-activated os can be placed on a GPT-disk
