Windows 7 - disabling driver signature enforcement

Is there a way to do this permanently? I've tried a few online guides but they did not actually work. It bothers me to keep pressing F8 every time I need to boot my computer.

I have tried to run command prompt as an administrator and also tried running with your file. From what I've read online some update/hotfix of Windows 7 disables the possibility to permanently disable this.

So just to make it clear. These commands do not work:
bcdedit.exe -set loadoptions DDISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS
bcdedit.exe -set TESTSIGNING ON

working(elevated from power run), i got the watermark
bcdedit.exe -set loadoptions DISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS
bcdedit.exe -set TESTSIGNING ON

there aint no way to remove the watermark and keep in test mode. the only way to remove it resets test mode to default :(

Whether bcdedit commands work or not depends on the Windows installation somehow I think, like I mentioned depending on what hotfixes are installed.

Secureboot is disabled in my BIOS.

this build is updated to EOL, the board is new and bios is at factory defaults.
Universal Watermark Disabler by Winaero doesnt work with 7, you get an unsupported OS window

Frankly, a lot of folks hang out at Win-RAID forum where people obsessively share WHQL or self-signed driver packs. They dig up drivers that vendors don't even acknowledge any more (Intel: :mad:). You might find an updated driver over there.

I actually used a Win-RAID usb3 driver that was modified for Win7 and signed... It actually worked fine with the latest Windows 7 Ultimate ISO. When I tried it with an older Professional ISO it didn't work (in terms of signature) and that's why I started this thread.

Unfortunately also the driver was damaged by using the dseo13b tool. I will try a later version of Windows 7 Professional next. It's just that I had a particular reason for using the older version, but that's another story.

Thanks for all the comments and help anyway.

This one? i used that and it works(ish) on B365 but im now of the opinion that getting older os's to work on modern hardware is becoming too much of a pain in the arse, if you including sifting through tons of updates. grrrrrr

the B365 chipset isnt listed in that topic post no1 but it does work. im running out of "cares" though.
im finding w10 much easier to service, works well enough, needs a lot of work. life is short, time is short and so is my patience.
the older i get the less damns ive got to give. and with the dreaded lurgi causing havoc ive got more important stuff to worry about.
