    Disable Driver


    In regards to:

    "Windows Vista supports the F8 Advanced Boot Option - "Disable Driver
    Signature Enforcement" - that disables load-time signature enforcement for a
    kernel-mode driver only for the current system session. This setting does
    not persist across system restarts."

    Is there any way to permanently disable driver signature enforcement or
    disable it on particular drivers that I need to be loaded, without having to
    select the startup option each time. ie, can the bootloader be modified with
    paramaters, etc to make this happen ?

    I don't think so.

    But probably you can generate your own code signing certificate, sign
    drivers in question with it and make this cert trusted on your computer.
    Just a thought...

    You can get tools involved, makecert.exe and signtool.exe, with Platform
    SDK, free download available on Microsoft web site:
