I received the following advice from BAD concerning the installation of drivers under Windows 8. (H/T Michael Ritter). Louis Hissink All you need to do is disable Driver Signature Enforcement Thanks to: http://laslow.net/2012/03/14/disable...-windows-8-cp/ So, one of the big issues I’ve had with the Windows 8 Consumer Preview is that Microsoft now not only forces you to use Digitally Signed Drivers (this isn’t new, as Windows 7 requires them as well), but also checks to see if the driver has been modified and will fail to install if it has. This is a problem for anyone who needs to modify a driver .INF to support their device (*cough*Android ADB Drivers*cough*). Fortunately, there is a (slightly complicated) workaround. To get started: From the Metro Start Screen, open Settings (move your mouse to the bottom-right-corner of the screen and wait for the pop-out bar to appear, then click the Gear icon). Click ‘More PC Settings’. Click ‘General’. Scroll down, and click ‘Restart now’ under ‘Advanced startup’. Wait a bit. Click ‘Troubleshoot’. Click ‘Advanced Options’ Click ‘Windows Startup Settings’ Click Restart. ??? Profit! When your computer restarts, select ‘Disable driver signature enforcement‘ from the list. You can now load your modified driver. Reboot again once the driver is installed and all will be well. Update (June 5th, 2012): As requested in the comments below, you can permanently enable Test Mode () by opening an Elevated Command Prompt and typing the following commands, then rebooting: Code: bcdedit -set loadoptions DISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS bcdedit -set TESTSIGNING ONTo turn it off again, use these commands: Code: bcdedit -set loadoptions ENABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS bcdedit -set TESTSIGNING OFFStandard disclaimer that by enabling Test Mode you are opening yourself to potential maliciousness, blah blah blah. I’m going to assume that if you’re going to do this you’ll have the common sense to verify things before installing them. Don’t blame me if your computer bursts in to flames!
