    Yes that's right your not dreaming. M18Xr2 can use digitally signed unedited drivers with 980m's!

    Just installed the latest version of windows 10 (1803) and while I was setting up to edit the drivers windows update INSTALLED the nvidia drivers itself.

    Restarted the system and updated using the unedited drivers and BOOM they installed perfectly.

    No more need to edit drivers we can run our 980M's without issue now!

    Didnt see anything about it fixed lol. Regardless I'm just happy I dont need to modify the OS and go through editing the driver ini to update the drivers now.

    Exciting... change to the NVidia drivers IIRC, maybe a year ago?

    Not sure. I do remember reinstalling the OS on that system a few months ago and still having to edit driver files to install them back then.
