Win 8 Driver Signature Enforcement Fix
Well, this is my first post on xda. BTW I am a noob, regular schlub, loser user but I do try to take xda's "find it before you ask an idiotic question" policy to heart. I was able to find this solution before asking for help and thought i would share it here. All I have done is summarize the original post and updates. I hope y'all find this helpful.
the problem i ran into was the drivers in the attached .zip file could not be installed on a Windows 8 machine. The error was a failure to install b/c of an error in reading the has of one of the catalog files. I found a site that gives you a solution to this error.. Here's a summary:
Go to cmd prompt and enter "| shutdown -o -r -t 0"
- Wait for bit...
- Click TROUBLESHOOT
- Click ADVANCED OPTIONS
- Click WINDOWS STARTUP SETTINGS
- Click RESTART
The computer will restart and list of options will appear before logging in.
Select the Disable driver signature enforcement
option. It was number 7
on the list i got.
To reenable the driver signature enforcement, just restart your computer normally.
Since this is my first post xda won't let me link the source site, so here it is below in case you would like to visit it. All credit goes to this guy.
