Re: How to Disable signature enforcement in windows 8

In order to do so you need a multi-boot system on a single os and if you don?t have so then you will have to add a safe mode boot menu entry and then on the startup menu you will get two 2 boot menu entries:
  • Your computer name
  • Safe Mode
So when you get this just highlight your computer and then press Shift + F8. And then you will get the win7 type advanced boot menu and then you can disable driver signature enforcement easily.

In order to start the Windows 7 in Safe Mode through the Advanced Boot Options just follow the below steps:
  • Go to the Advanced Boot Options
  • Use the arrow keys and then select the Safe Mode and then press enter
  • When you are done you have to simply restart the computer and then you will go to the normal mode automatically.

  • Then select Windows 7 and then check Safe boot and dot Minimal.
  • Click on ok and then restart the computer
  • After reboot it will take you to the safe mode.

Re: How to Disable signature enforcement in windows 8

You can also use the BCDEDIT Command in a Command Prompt which used to work for windows 7 as well:
For safe mode:
Open the command prompt and then type ?bcdedit /set safeboot minimal? and then press enter and then restart your computer
For safe mode with networking:
You have to follow the above method and instead type bcdedit /set safeboot network and then press enter and then close the command prompt and then restart your computer.

Re: How to Disable signature enforcement in windows 8

I was trying to Disable signature enforcement in windows 8 since tomorrow and I had tried a no of other solution as well but then I am finally able to do so by adding a safe mode boot menu entry and then by highlighting my computer name from the 2 boot menu entries which I got and then just highlighting it and then pressing Shift + F8 and then after getting the advanced boot menu I was able to disable the driver signature enforcement. This solution really works and is quite easy as well I will like to suggest the same to the other who have the same doubt. Thanks
