Driver Verifier BSOD during start

By burian.vlastimil2 ·
Hi. I recently bought a new machine with the new Win 8.1 Pro and am experiencing BSOD's once or twice a month. I'd like to dig into that. I found Driver Verifier, that could help identify bad drivers. But #1 I don't have any unsigned drivers and also any drivers for older version of Windows. Despite this fact, when I enabled Driver Verifier, the system crashes during startup with strange error message, something with IO Driver Verifier, but I don't remember it really, which is a shame I know - I should have written it down, but I didn't, well,... It wasn't anything concrete, otherwise I'd remember it.

Does someone have experience with this? Only signed drivers and only for Win 8, but don't pass the extreme stress tests, which Driver Verifier puts upon them.

Try disabling driver signature enforcement.

I recently came across a similar issue whereas drivers are not being loaded in windows 8 & 8.1, and Server 2012 (r2) editions because the drivers' .inf files are not digitally signed. Also, powershell scripts cannot be run easily because the same OS' also wants digital signatures.

In regards to disabling driver signature verification, I found the follow quite useful so I can install hardware which is being denied by windows:
