    Why are RSTe drivers listed by Win7 64 (pre SP1) as unsigned?

    Bill Nackers



      I work for a company that designs and manufactures single board industrial computers.  Our most recent board uses the Intel C608 chipset and is configured to supply 4 SAS ports.  My problem is that when I configure a RAID array (doesn't matter if its RAID 0, RAID 1 or RAID10) on the SAS ports and then attempt to install the "F6" drivers durning install, Windows 7 (pre SP1) comes back with the message that I need signed 64bit drivers?  I have downloaded the last 3 RSTe version and have tried them all and none of them work.


      The flip side of this is that If I attempt the install on Windows 7 with Service Pak 1, the drivers install fine without Windows 7 bawking.


      Does anyone know why this is happening and how to get around this?  We have customers that have pre SP1 copies of Windows 7 and we need a solution.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!
