    Complete Solution: Installing Windows 7 Drivers onto Windows 8 G75VW (and others)

    There weren't many people looking at the old thread because it wasn't solving our sound driver problems.

    I stumbled across this method when I was trying to connect my arduino with Windows 8 and kept on getting an error for "Missing driver signature". I was getting sick of the guy putting mis-information on the forum and was waiting for an actual complete solution. I was maybe a minute away from getting rid of Windows 8 and going back to Windows 7 just to get my audio working properly. Here is how to do it, either write it down, take notes, or take a picture:


    1. Windows Key + R
    2. Type the following command in -> shutdown.exe /r /o /f /t 00
    3. Click the "OK" button
    4. System will restart to a "Choose an option" screen
    5. Select "Troubleshoot" from "Choose an option" screen
    6. Select "Advanced options" from "Troubleshoot" screen
    7. Select "Windows Startup Settings" from "Advanced options" screen
    8. Click "Restart" button
    9. System will restart to "Advanced Boot Options" screen
    10. Select "Disable Driver Signature Enforcement" (F7)

    Once you restart into Windows 8, you can install the latest Windows 7 Drivers for this.
    I attached a screenshot, notice there is full control of the subwoofer and playback is excellent.

    Doesn't disabling driver verification at all times kill Windows Update?

    You only need to do it once to install the drivers, when you restart you will back to normal Windows.
