The Driver Signing Annoyance

Hi everyone,

Well I'm thinking to make Win Seven my primary OS on my system by today and I want to know if there is anyway possible to turn the annoyance of the Driver Signing Enforcement on 64bit systems since that is the only way I tried and managed to get the internet on my netgear PCI card working.

Yes I do know that but I don't want to do that everytime I boot up, isn't there a way that I can just have it set to disable driver enforcement automatically?

err, you can use Easy BCD ,it has an option to use unsigned drivers under advanced options, couldn't tell you if it actually does it, as I don't have anything to test with.

Unless there's some other program that does it for you, I think you'll just have to do it manually, press F8 and check the option to use unsigned drivers at boot up everytime. You would n't have to do it for 32 bit, but you probably know that already...

Perhaps there is an older version of the drivers that are digitally signed that would work for your card? That's the only thing I could think of..

Hmm I tried a different approach and installed a fresh version of Vista and installed the latest drivers, then upgraded to win 7, everything works great
