Disable Mandatory Driver Signature Control On Windows 8 And 10

The 64-bit versions of Windows 8 and 10 include a ”  mandatory driver signature control  ” feature that only loads drivers that have been signed by Microsoft. To install unofficial drivers, old unsigned drivers, or drivers that you have developed yourself, you must disable the mandatory control of driver signatures . This is the purpose of this article that will show you how

The  compulsory control Driver Signature is a security feature that ensures that only drivers that have been approved by Microsoft are loaded by the kernel security check failure  of Windows. This prevents malware from infiltrating the Windows kernel. So be sure of what you do, do not force the installation of any pilot!

Method 1: by activating the “Test-Signing” mode

Windows has a “Test-Signing” mode that allows you to disable the mandatory control of driver signatures . Mandatory control of driver signatures will remain disabled as long as the test mode remains active. You will see a watermark appear at the bottom right of your screen on the desktop, informing you that the test mode is enabled .

You should have the message: ”  The operation was successful “. Restart your PC now so that the deactivation of the mandatory control of driver signatures is taken into account.

  • If you have the following messages:
  • An error occurred while setting the element data.
  • the safe startup policy, and can not be modified or deleted.

This means that the in the UEFI firmware on your PC. Therefore, you must disable the Secure Boot in your the test mode kernel security check failure

If you are concerned, click on the following link to learn how to disable the Secure Boot . After the Secure Boot has been disabled, re-enter the previous command to activate the test mode and restart your PC.

After restarting your PC, you will see the “Test Mode” watermark appear at the bottom right of your screen, on the desktop.

Method # 2: Using Advanced Boot Options

You can also use the advanced boot options to start Windows 8 or 10 with  mandatory driver signature control disabled . It is a temporary method . The next time you restart Windows, it will start with the required control of driver signatures enabled .

Access advanced startup options . For example: Click the Windows logo at the bottom left to open the Start menu, click the Power button  (1) and then, while⇑ holding down the Shift key , click Restart .

Real-time kernel security check failure  are functionally specialized. These are usually light enough kernels whose strict basic function is to guarantee the execution times of the tasks. There is no real notion of speed of processing or reactivity in real-time kernels, this notion is rather implicit in the guarantee of execution times compared to the temporal criteria of industrial application (reactivity an ABS braking system does not have the same temporal criteria as filling an oil tank).

Highly used in the world of embedded electronics , they are designed to run on hardware platforms limited in size, power or autonomy.

Real-time kernel security check failure  can theoretically adopt any previously listed architecture. They often provide two separate interfaces , one specialized in real time and the other generic. Real-time applications then use the real-time part of the kernel.
