Accepting Un-Signed Drivers RRS feed

  • Question

  • well heres half my problem, i am stuck on an offshore oil rig for a tow down to brazil with basically nothing to do.  So me and my buddy want to play Starcraft networked but the problem is that the game is old enough to where the main network protocol of its time was IPX so thats what i have to have to play it but Vista doesnt support IPX anymore.  Now i found a place on the net that has a IPX Protocol i can download but its an unsigned driver and Vista 64-Bit does not accept unsigned drivers period, so my question is if there is a way to get around Vista accepting unsigned drivers or am i just *** out of luck and i'm going to need to down-grade to a 32-bit version?

    Try the "Easy BCD" software, in the Advaced Options

  • Hi,

    I had the same problem. A quick search on Google and I got this site:

    http://www.security-hacks.com/2007/05/07/vista-disable-driver-signing-verification-in-64-bit

    They have been really helpful with various Vista-related questions I had....

    just press F8 to access the Windows Advanced Boot options and select the last option (to allow unsigned drivers to be installed)
