Windows 7: Permanently disable Driver Signing enforcement in 64bit

Permanently disable Driver Signing enforcement in 64bit

-F8 on reboot only does it for the session.

-"/bcdedit -set loadoptions \”DDISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS" does not work.

-GpEdit.msc editting does not work.

Can this be done?

have you tried driver signature enforcement overrider?

it worked for me a couple of builds back. (i don't need it any more)

you only need to run it once, to turn it 'on'; then run it again at any time in the future to turn it 'off'.

happy overriding!

Yes that works but for a different reason. It's not really disabling anything, but having you run in a developers "Test Mode" all the time... the consequences of which aren't really known. Not a good solution imo

the consequences of permanently disabling driver signing enforcement (your original request) aren't really known either, but you asked how to do it because the methods you had tried failed.

i told you how to do it and now you're scared. if you can find a way of achieving your goal whilst knowing all possible future consequences, then do please let us know.

What? They aren't even remotely the same thing. I want to disable a feature that has zero consequences as long as you control what is installed on your computer. You're running windows in a modified test mode built so developers could play around, and while running in this mode will never be able to be sure if its effecting future actions/installs because that isn't what its built for.

Thanks for your advice, but I asked for a solution and not a workaround.

well maybe it isn't built to have driver signing permanently disabled either.

Which is completely different then disabling it every reboot? Quit trolling.

Celeras stop whining, the man gave u a solution,
I've used the same solution for my win 7 x64 RTM installation, working on "test mode"
so i could install my 1998 TV card with modified drivers.

so far (month) no problems what so ever and i didn't notice the slightest change between test and normal mode.

this is probably the best solution anyone could offer for his issue.
