[Tutorial] How to manually install a driver in Windows

#1
(This post was last modified: 07-08-2017, 12:48 AM by X3non. )

By manually installing a driver, we actually mean installing drivers that come in .inf file format.

Note

  • If you are using Windows 8, 8.1 or 10, you will need to disable drivers signature verification before you'll be allowed to install unsigned drivers in windows, see  http://forum.hovatek.com/thread-752.html for the procedure 
  • If you get the code 10 error after the installation, simply ignore it. You're getting the error because you have installed an unsigned driver.
  • If after the installation you get a yellow warning triangle beside the drive, simply ignore it. You're getting the error because you have installed an unsigned driver

How to manually install a driver in Windows


  1. If the driver is within a compressed file e.g ZIP or RAR, then extract the contents of the file to any notable folder
