The CAT, because NVCleanstall makes changes to the INF. The INF isn't signed it's just a text file (its signature is stored in the CAT)

That was really fast. Does EAC really check the .inf signature? I don't think I remember that being an issue with some of the earlier inf mods I've done before.

Not sure what specifically it checks, but EAC detects mismatched files without the "use compatible signing" method

I was wanting to try modifying the .sys file to remove the artifical lock preventing 3000 series cards from working on 8.x, so I was wondering if this would resign it. Guess it won't.

You can use disable driver enforcement + test signing to work around that limitation.


This thread should help provide more info

Yeah, I know that allows me to install and test the driver, but EAC is a bitch and will say no. Unless I mod the kernel to not check signatures by default, and fool around a bit, this will remain an issue.

How exactly does NVCleanstall change the .cat? I've done an inf mod to an AMD driver, and would like to make it work with EAC.
