I am having difficulty installing drivers on Windows 8, what should I do?
Answer: Enable Test Mode on Win8 to allow using unsigned driver files:
METHOD #1: Through Windows 8 Settings Interface:
1.) WinKey+C > Settings (Gear icon)
2.) Change PC Settings
3.) General > Advanced Startup > Restart now
4.) Troubleshoot > Advanced Options
5.) Windows Startup Settings > Restart
6.) Wait for computer to restart…
7.) Select ‘Disable driver signature enforcement’.
8.) Now you can proceed to install these drivers ^_^
METHOD #2: From the CMD line:
1.) Open a cmd prompt as an Admin and enter the following cmds:
bcdedit -set loadoptions DISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS bcdedit -set TESTSIGNING ON
2.) Now restart your computer, or if you are feeling extra nerdy type this into cmd prompt to restart:
shutdown /r /t 1
3.) Then use whatever driver solution you are attempting (Driver Solution #3 is recommended).
4.) After you are all done, if you wan’t to revert back to Winows8 default driver behavior and disable test mode, then open a cmd prompt again as an Admin and enter the following cmds:
bcdedit -set loadoptions ENABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS bcdedit -set TESTSIGNING OFF
5.) Then just restart your computer again. ^_^
