Non executable drivers in compatibility mode

I'm trying to resolve an issue I've previously posted about here.

I'm wondering if there is a way to install non-executable drivers in compatibility mode. The drivers I'm using look like this:

I am unsure that those drivers (non signed) can be installed at all. After all it is a mac.

They can be installed, I've done it multiple times. There's also an Autorun.INF and ICO file in the top directory (two above that folder).

Here's a link to the drivers in question, they're the x64 ones.

BTW, 99% of the time using a mac makes no difference at all. All of my hardware is compatible with Windows natively other than a few small things like iSight and my onboard keyboard/mouse. The K&M even function minimally without drivers. The only portion of my computer that is completely foreign to Windows is the EFI aka BIOS.
