In windows 7 was pretty easy:

bcdedit -set TESTSIGNING ON
bcdedit -set loadoptions DDISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS

and you would enter in test mode where you could install unsigned drivers.

In windows 8 however, the above does not work and even though the commands return as being succesful the watermark test mode does not appear. Can't install any unsigned drivers not matter what.

 

The only in 8 that did work was booting to the recovery menu and selecting Disable Driver Signature Enforcement. The problem is that it isn't permanent and is unusable.

 

Does anyone know of a way to get around this? If so, would you please share?

I need permanent way to load and install these drivers.

 

Thank you so much.

Here (though they are more "workarounds" than "solutions"):

Which Win 8 do you use?
32 bit or 64 bit, BIOS, UEFI with or without secure boot?

The problem is winload.exe, it scans for DISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS string and replaces it with spaces.

So to get it work, the string in winload.exe needs to be changed to something else.

I've tried http://uhlik.sk/?page=swreadydriverand it works. Basically it automates the execution of recovery mode (F8, Disable Driver Enforcement). But AFAIK that always worked, even with secure boot.

 

32 bit or 64 bit, BIOS, UEFI with or without secure boot?

 

8.1 64-bit with the first UEFI systems, some HP machines from 2008. I don't even have secure boot as a setting.
