Vista question (signed drivers?)


I read that Vista will require signed drivers. (I.E., third-party-verified drivers)

Is this true? The user won't have an option to install unsigned drivers?

32bit vista doesn't require signed drivers. 64bit vista does require them.

there is a way to get around it in 64bit vista, you can hit (i believe f8) before booting and select to start without driving signing. at the moment it requires that do that everytime you boot. there was a hack/workaround in RC1 that would let it autoboot unsigned drivers. that hasn't translated to RTM yet.
