Unsigned Driver Popup

Recommended Posts

So, I extracted all Bashrats driverpacks and integrated all these with vLite.

When Windows Vista is installing, I get the annoying popup saying the driver is not signed.

Has anyone found any solution to this yet?

I clicked "Install anyway" 20 times and left it a while. After about 10 minutes of leaving the 21st popup there, it just rebooted and finished installing but skipped out all my post install scripts! So I guess you have to sit there clicking the popup over and over and over again huh?

There are many people asking about this and I have not found any solution.

A good idea I saw was to make a "fake" certificate for every driver to make Vista think it is a legitimate (digitally signed) driver.

Microsoft are just complete suckers for doing this - 99% of those drivers in Bashrats packs are unsigned, if you were to remove all the unsigned drivers, there would be no drivers left! :realmad:

I have looked through all 24 pages of topic titles for the answer to this, no one seems to have any answer.

Nuhi says over and over again just click the popup...

So I guess there is no fix for this yet?

Why do people keep asking about x64 when it happens on x86 as well?

Like I said, I got 20 popups and just stopped clicking it after that, then Windows carried on installing, none of the drivers (Ethernet + Sound) worked (VMware) BTW I did not even remove any components, its a complete install.

your first problem is that Bashrats driverpacks are for XP not Vista. Sure they work sometimes on Vista but they are not intended for it.

True, but this does not make the unsigned driver popup appear.

That only appears because of unsigned drivers.

A few members @ driverpacks.net are already using a makeshift BASE to slipstream the packs, I just tried it with vLite since its a lot more advanced (I mean its fully implemented in vLite and is official) than the makeshift one a few people have tried and succeeded with. I only gave up with that because no one has answered the question there about why the Vista BASE slipstreamer is asking for a "Drivers.xml" file. What the hell is that? "Drivers.xml" :unsure: There is no such file in the mounted image, or anywhere.

So wait... if I somehow remove all the drivers that are not WHQL signed, it can't ever popup asking abou tthat, right? because all the CAT files are there for the drivers?

All I gotta do now is find some way to show only the folders in a search that do not have a CAT file in the folder!

Searching is easy but NOT searching, sheesh...

Bashrats packs are not for Vista and never gonna be for Vista.

And about searching , if you searched you would already know that.

For Vista there are other tools , i personaly dont use Vlite for the driver part, because of this.

Hi Sp00f,

Bashrats packs are not for Vista and never gonna be for Vista.

What do you mean "never gonna be" ?

Never heared that before. Actually Bashrat said in the Driverpacks forum that driverpacks for vista are being developed. So where do you get this information ?

Bye,

Alex

Hi sp00f,

Unfortunately, I do not speak any dutch :unsure:

I know I should have learned that ! It would have come handy :sneaky:

Anyways, I do not get it. Why should there be no Driverpacks for Vista ? It does not make any sense. I know people are reluctant to move to Vista from XP but over time this will change any more and more people will use Vista. So why not make driverpacks for it ?

Is it too much work to assemble all the drivers again or is it a technical issue or did Bashrat move to Linux or what is it ? :whistle:

Anyway, have a nice day !

Alex

Bashrat doesnt make any packs anymore, he has a team for it, wich does a great job btw.

And yes its a hell of a job, and remember those guys do this for free, in their spare time.

Any way.... the link i gave you might be Dutch, but in that post are links, one of the link is a vista driverpack.

Works great, and maybe we can fill it up with some more drivers.
