I am trying to disable the Windows 10 driver signature verifier.
This is causing constant BSOD errors – all showing “Driver Verifier IOManger Violation”
I am trying to install an old video driver. I would like to completely disable the verifier program, but so far I can’t.
I have spent the last few days researching and trying every variation of the following strategies
I rebooted into advanced setup options
shutdown.exe /r /o
I then hit F7 to disable driver signature verification
Enabled the option for code signed drivers
Enabled Test Mode
I tried to disable any video drivers in use under device manager, but there are no video drivers installed at all.
In cmd.exe I ran “verifier” to open the driver verifier manager
I choose “Display existing settings”
All options read as “no”
I set compatibility mode on my driver install package and am running as administrator
After every install attempt the BSOD screen appears with the driver verifier error message.
