Being worth it or not, really depends on what you want it for, can you give any more info?

You need to boot into Windows 7's advanced boot options, as this tutorial explains.

Advanced Boot Options

Have a look at Disable Driver Signature Enforcement: Allows drivers containing improper signatures to be temporarily installed.

What are the drivers you're trying to install?

Run a full scan with Malwarebytes.

Replace your AV with Microsoft Security Essentials or Avast 6 for best performance and least trouble.

thx for replying

I don't have any virusses/malware .I have alredy scanned with malwarebytes ecc.
I don't have to install / do any specific thing.

The only thing I want to do is to "fix" that BCD.

Check these two links, but I'm intrigued as to why you want tio install unsigned drivers.
