Windows 7: Using Unsigned Drivers. Selected Via F8 On Startup. How To Lock Settin

Using Unsigned Drivers. Selected Via F8 On Startup. How To Lock Settin

Hello,

Finally found the problem as to why a program wouldn't run after a new HD reinstall.
Msg. says that a Signed Driver is required.
Vendor says that it is signed. Oh well.

Anyway, if I press F8 on startup, I can select the option that allows one, apparently, to use unsigned drivers. Program now works fine.

But, it seems like I have to do this every time I start the PC.

Found a page via Google that tells you how to keep the setting.

You type in cmd.exe, Run as Administrator, then the DOS like screen appears in which you type:

bcdedit.exe -set loadoptions DDisable_integrity_checks
and also type in: bcdedit.exe -set testsigning on
Then, an Exit from the DOS screen, and re-start of PC

But, I guess it is only to prevent the message from appearing, not locking in the setting. At least this seems to be the case. True ?

How would I "lock" the setting that I selected via F8 that allows one to use
Unsigned Drivers such that I don't have to go thru the F8 routine each time I start the PC ?

Thanks,
Bob
