Disable Driver

#1
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:
