Default [Q] flashtool drivers won't install in Windows 8. How do install it?

I want to flash CyanogenMod 10 on my unlocked Neo V. I just upgraded to Windows 8 64bit Pro. After going in a fastboot mode (to flash kernel), flashtool gave me a driver error and rightly pointed to the driver folder.

However after extraction of the drivers, I get an install error so I can't use fastboot. How do I install these drivers?

I actually figured it out on my own. Turns out Windows 8 by default locks out unsigned drivers. I just turned it off at boot and the drivers installed perfectly. Fastboot now works

Default question:

Ive followed the steps to disable driver signature verification but my sony vaio would not boot to start up options I cant hit the disable driver signature verification because I can't go to that screen.. after I hit restart it just boot as normal and load the os..
