Cannot install USB driver windows 8

Post by Steve » Tue 09 Jul , 2013 12:21 pm

I have tried to install the standard USB driver onto 2 new PC's with Windows 8

These PC's are brand new Dell Machines.

The default in the Windows 8 is to not allow you to install unsigned drivers.

There is a post telling you how to make the changes to the PC settings which allows the Baldor driver to install.

Another way to do this found on ehow.


Restart your computer.

Press the F8 key continuously as Windows boots up. This will bring up the "Advanced Boot Options" screen.

Select "Disable Driver Signature Enforcement" using the arrow keys and press "Enter." Windows will no longer try to verify driver signatures, and you will be able to install unsigned drivers. You will have to set this option every time you restart your computer and wish to run the unsigned device driver.
