As you might know, or will learn now , starting with Windows Vista, MS decided to add an extra protection to x64 systems: Device Driver Signature Enforcement. In other words you can install & use only MS certified drivers in your system. If you would install an unsigned or improperly signed driver then Windows would let you know that the driver is not signed and it would not load on the next boot (usually giving an error) or even not install at all.
LOL.What kind of ghetto hardware manufacturer can't afford $300 for a certificate?
They aren't telling you what to do. They're enforcing driver signing for stability and security. It's not their fault when the manufacturer doesn't get their drivers signed.How the hell can Microsoft get away with telling us what we can and can not install onto our computers?
I thought you haven't used it?
But whatever the case, you are saying it is safe to remain in test mode permanently?
Do work, install software, games, internet, etc...
