How to disable driver signing enforcement

By antiartist ·
In googling the question, I found several forums discussing the 'disable driver signing' option in the advanced startup menu for Vista (64 bit). I have tried this startup option but the enforced driver signing appears to still be in effect.

Any suggestions?

Good question

I really want to know this myself, since 99% of the drivers I run are unsigned, only exception is my video card.

Personally I do not believe that this is possible

Mainly because M$ has embedded this deep inside their OS particularly with Vista.

Short of Reverse Engineering the OS which you agree not to do when you accept the EULA I do not believe that there is any way to achieve this.

there MUST be a way...

The fact that the ability to do so is clearly stated in the advanced startup menu, it must be possible. The option just doesn't work for whatever reason.

Someone MUST have some insight on this...anyone??

Does this still work?

by IC-IT In reply to there MUST be a way...

Use gpedit.msc and navigate to:

User Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> System -> Driver Installation and enable the "Code signing for drivers" and then choose "Ignore".

It appears that MS wants to suppress this option. Read the last two posts at this thread;

I am sure there will still be a back door somewhere. How are you supposed to test drivers if your a developer? Somewhere there MUST be a back door.

No Go...

Well, I believe the answer is 'no', it does not work anymore. gpedit.msc does not appear to exist on my computer.

Good find though :)
