In my windows 7 installment it gives the error: driver not signed. I need this RAID-driver to be signed for x64. How can i sign a driver. It is the GIGABYTE SATA2 RAID Driver.

Spent the last half hour Googling for the best answer to your situation and here is what I found.

Here's how to install Windows 7 using unsigned drivers:

  • Copy your unsigned driver to USB stick or other media (you will probably need only one .inf and a .sys file)
  • Start Windows 7 setup.
  • At this point, Do Not Select 'Install' as your RAID controller will not be detected if it's not supported by Win7
  • Click 'Repair'.
  • Wait for the pseudo-scanner to finish.
  • Click load driver.
  • Point to your unsigned driver (the .inf file) you previously copied to USB stick or other media.
  • Wait again for the pseudo-scanner to finish.
  • Click the 'x' in the corner to close the repair mode.
  • Click 'Install' to start the installation.
  • Now your RAID controller and RAID Drives will be detected and there will be no warning of unsigned drivers.

    Everything should proceed just fine from this point on.
