HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ Software\ Policies\ Microsoft\ Windows NT\ Driver Signing
set the REG_DWORD "BehaviorOnFailedVerify" to
0 for ignore
1 for warn the user
2 for block unsigned drivers
So maybe you just change this registry value while installing the drivers you need?

I've tested it on a fresh Windows XP Pro 2002. I've created exactely the same key with the same value then I reboot and it doesn't work(there is still a warning message). To be very sure I put 2 instead of 0 and the reaction was ok ->if I put 2 the warning is transformed into antother window which prevent to install the non signed driver.

"Control Panel\System\Hardware\Driver Signing"

(1) the System Control Panel's "Driver Signing Options",
(2) the Local Security Policy Control Panel, or
(3) domain Group Policies
However, in my experience this setting doesn't really work. For a more detailed explanation with screen shots, see my post at http://www.ewall.org...yarticle93.html
So, not wanting to beat a dead horse, but my client is asking again... Anyone have any other solutions? Thanx...
