Win 8 disable forcing digital driver signature

Post by klaus » Thu May 02, 2013 12:08 pm

Win8 enforces driver signatures by default. If you have a Win7 driver that worked OK, I suggest the following to disable driver signature enforcement:

From the Metro or Desktop

Bring up Charms by mouseing over to the right of the screen
Go to Settings
More PC Settings
Advanced Startup > Restart Now
Trouble shoot
Advanced options
Windows startup options
Click on 'Disable driver signature enforcement
Install the relevant driver, allowing the non signed driver to install.
