I found out how to allow unsigned drivers in windows 8, the instructions are below.
FYI... this may need to be done each time you update your graphics driver
Open a Command Prompt (Run as Administrator).
On the command prompt type BCDEDIT /Set LoadOptions DDISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS and enter.
A message will say "Command successful"
Now type BCDEDIT /Set TESTSIGNING ON.
If, for any reason, you want to change back to the default, repeat the steps but with the commands
BCDEDIT /Set LoadOptions DDISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS and
BCDEDIT /Set TESTSIGNING ON
Restart the computer.
this changes the driver situation to work like in windows 7 and you will still have to allow the unsigned driver to be installed but it won't just automatically cancel the installation.
- Open Settings (move your mouse to the top or bottom right corner of the screen and wait for the charm bar to appear, then click the Gear icon)
- Click "Change PC Settings"
- Click "General"
- Scroll down, and click ‘Restart now’ under "Advanced startup"
- Click "Troubleshoot"
- Click "Advanced Options"
- Click "Windows Startup Settings"
- Click Restart
- When your computer restarts, select "Disable driver signature enforcement" from the list (on my PC it was option 7)
- You can now load the unsigned driver and after resetting your computer it should still work.
happy force updating
