Test mode problem

 12:46 am on Jan 26, 2010 (gmt 0)

I'm trying to enable test mode to load x64 unsigned drivers which worked before fine. I'm using Windows 7 x64.
Recently i made an hardware upgrade (i don't know if it has to with it) and since then i believe those drivers won't load anymore. Well not exactly, the thing that doesn't work anymore is disabling driver enforcement and test mode enabled from cmd.exe and some tools. I also made all the possible changes available on the Internet (registry, service)! BUT if I press F8 and disable driver enforcement at startup the drivers get loaded and work.
So why won't test mode start anymore? Do you know how to at least check if it's set ON?

I assume you're talking about test signing? If so that's set via BCDedit [msdn.microsoft.com].

To enable test-signing:

Bcdedit.exe -set TESTSIGNING ON

To disable test-signing:

Bcdedit.exe -set TESTSIGNING OFF

Yes that doesn't work at all, can i know if that is enabled?

Just run Bcdedit.exe and look for a line that says: "Testsigning Yes"

It says Yes :( so how's possible that when I boot I get an error that the drivers can't be loaded cause of the missing signature. isn't testsigning supposed to let me load those drivers? It always worked. It also shows that loadoptions = DDISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS!
BUT as I said if disable driver signature enforcement in f8 it works, I don't get it.

I agree that doesn't make much sense. You say this all worked before...before what exactly?
