Signing an unsigned driver to be loaded during Win 7 installation

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Just as the thread title states, I need to learn out how to sign and verify the ASM106x Sata 3.0 pci-e card. I bought it to allow my SSD to break the 2.0 speeds that it is currently being limited to. The problem is that I am unable to load the driver during windows installation as it tells me that I am only able to load signed and trusted drivers etc. What I don't understand is that my current windows 7 allows me to install the driver and recognizes the card just fine and is signed by "Microsoft Windows Hardware Compatibility Publisher". However, there is one unauthenticated attribute on the driver certificate that I do not know much about. Software/coding is not my strong point. The "unauthenticated" attribute it has is a Countersign.

I have found a few articles online but I am unable to follow them very well. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am uncertain if this will work, but it is worth a try.

At the windows setup GUI, Press Shift+F10. This should give you access to a cmd prompt.

Use this command

bcdedit /set nointegritychecks ON

This will turn off the driver verification.

Again, I am unsure if this command is accessible during Windows setup.

I was able to load the command line during installation and bcdedit does work. However I was unable to find any command to allow me to turn off the integritychecks during the installation. When using that command and another one I found, it simply returns a "file not recognized" error. I think my only option at this point may be to learn to create my own certs.
