I'm having problems trying to install win7 64 bit.

I'm pretty sure I've narrowed it down to being a problem with NOT having a digitally signed jmicron raid driver.

I'm googling etc but most tuts seem to be about signing drivers that are already installed on a working install.

I need to sign a driver so that I can point the installation of win7 to use that driver.

Is it possible to do this?
If so how?

You cannot do this. Digital signing must be done by the creator of the driver. If an individual user could do this the entire exercise would be pointless.

In addition to the above correct comments I would say that I have used drivers that were NOT digitally signed without incident. If there are no digitally signed drivers for the device you don't have much choice.

Pretty much what that process means is that Microsoft assures you those drivers should work.

Many times vendors of hardware that was manufactured while WinXP or Vista was the current OS will not spend the time and money to certify drivers for older hardware.

If a driver was written for Vista 64 it should work for Windows 7- 64.

In some cases a driver that is not digitally signed may cause a problem. In your case the result should be correctable.

Have you tried forcing the use of the driver?

Why do you want to use RAID 0 anyway?

I use this pc as a server so RAID0 works very well.

I have installed win7 32bit but when installing 64bit it fails to 'use' the 64bit driver I have for my jmicron :(

During win7 install it sees the raid and I can even choose which partition to use but it just won't use/see the driver?
