    I have recently installed Vista x64 and downloaded i8kfangui correspondent version but I just can´t get the darn thing to install. I´ve already tried to disable driver signature enforcing both via bcdedit prompt command and gpedit.msc option, but Vista x64 keeps blocking the installation of the fanio.sys driver wich is used by i8kfangui.

    Is there any other way I can bypass this driver signature?

    Thanks a lot.

    yes... the bcdedit disable driver signature doesn't work....

    you either have to manually press F8(i think it's F8) for the boot options every boot up, scroll up twice(or down 6 times) to the disable option, then hit enter....

    or you could use ReadyDrive Plus (google It)

    i personally didn't install ReadyDrive(didn't want that program to mess around with grub + windows bootloader any more).... i dual boot, and has ubuntu as default, so if i boot into windows, i need to wait at GRUB already... F8 + a few more key presses won't kill me

    ReadyDriverPlus worked like a charm, thank you very much!
