Okay

I'm about to just strangle someone I've had it with this windows 8 and signed driver crap, I need to load the drivers for the Raid array and it won't accept any of intel's drivers because there not signed during installation. So What can I do?

To install third-party mass storage drivers for the 64-bit editions of Windows Server 2008 and of Windows Vista, follow these steps: 1.Start the computer from the 32-bit based installation media, and then follow the instructions in the Setup program.
2.Select a 64-bit target operating system.
3.On the Where do you want to install Windows page of the Setup program, click Load drivers, and then locate the folder that contains the 32-bit drivers for your mass storage controller.
4.Click the 32-bit driver, and then click Next.

Note You receive a message that you must have 64-bit signed drivers. The 64-bit editions of Windows Server 2008 and of Windows Vista do not support unsigned drivers.
5.Click Load drivers again, locate the 64-bit drivers for your mass storage controller, and then click Next.
6.Select the target partition, and then complete the installation.

Notes◦In Windows Server 2008 and in Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1), OEMs can create installation media that contain both 64-bit images and 32-bit images. The operating system starts into the 32-bit Windows Preinstallation Environment (Windows PE), and you can install a 64-bit image or a 32-bit image.
◦Third-party mass storage drivers may be required to access the target partition. For example, third-party mass storage drivers are required if you use a SCSI redundant array of independent disks (RAID) controller. In this case, you must provide the 64-bit driver and the 32-bit driver on the Where do you want to install Windows page of the Setup program. The 32-bit driver is loaded in the 32-bit Windows PE where the Setup program is running. Therefore, you can access the target partition. The 64-bit driver must be staged into the target 64-bit image and must be deployed to the target partition for the target operating system to start.
◦If you do not provide the 64-bit driver, you receive a "Stop 0x7b" error message after you restart the computer. This error occurs because the 64-bit operating system does not have a driver for the mass storage controller.
