" You have to run the CMD file from within the Command Prompt or Windows Powershell as Admin ".................How will I do this ??
I know how to start CMD but then.... ( sorry, Im not so smart as you are, Im only a starter )
I want to update all my old MS-inf-files to latest , signed by you. I got this old stuff with the upgrade from 1607 ( with latest drivers ,signed by you ) to the 1703.

@Pete12:
If you had already previously imported the Win-RAID CA Certificate, you can update the Intel Chipset Device INF files by doing the following:
1. Run the Device Manager and expand the section "System devices".
2. Do a right click onto the first listed device, whose name begins with the word "Intel(R)", and choose the options "Update driver" > "Browse my computer".
3. Click onto the button "Browse" and navigate to the folder, which contains the desired mod+signed INF files (folder name in this case: "INF+CAT Files").
4. Click onto the button "OK" and "Next".
5. If the folder contains any suitable newer INF file for the related device, it will be installed automaticly.
6. Repeat the procedure - one after the other - with all listed devices, whose name begins with the word "Intel(R)".
Don't worry about getting a wrong "driver" installed. If the related device needs any other driver and not an Intel Chipset Device INF file, the Device Manager will give you the information, that "the best driver has been already been installed".

If the Win-RAID CA Certificate has not yet been imported, do the following:
1. Download the attached INF Files package and unzip it.
2. Create a folder named "Certificate" within your drive C and copy the 2 files, which are within the "Certificate" folder of your just downloaded and unzipped package, into the folder C:\Certificate.
3. Run the Windows PowerShell as Admin, edit "cd C:\Certificate" and hit the Enter key.
4. Edit ".\import.cmd" and hit the Enter key.
5. hit "y" (for Yes), when prompted.
6. Now you should see a lot of messages inclusive the one, that the Win-RAID CA Certificate has ben successfully imported.
7. To close the WindowsPowerShell, edit "exit" and hit the Enter key.
8. If you want, you can delete the folder C:\Certificate thereafter.

Well, did exactly as you said, drivers are all installed/updated, only they are not digital signed , I can not find your certificate on the info-tab of each driver !
Am I doing something wrong......?

Run the Device Manager, expand the section "System devices", do a right-click onto any Intel Chipset Device and choose the options "Properties" > "Driver".
Then you should see something like this:

Well, I did see this in my previous 1607-version, but not in my upgraded 1703-version !
Its showing "not signed "


It seems the input of the certificate does not function in this latest Win10 ( 1703) !!

It works even with the currently latest Win10 Build 16179, which I am running now.
I suspect, that it is the upgrade, which may be responsable for your "problem", which is not really one, because you obviously were able to successfully update the Intel Chipset Device INF files by using my mod+signed variants.
Remember: There is no difference regarding the functionality and stability between a modded and a digitally signed driver!

@Pete12:
That the digital signature of my modded INF files is accepted by Windows, can be easily verified by
a) doing a right-click onto any of the *.CAT files, which are associated to the *.INF files,
b) choosing the option "Properties",
c) choosing the tab "Digital Signatures",
d) clicking onto "Win-RAID CA" and
e) hitting the button "Details".
It should look like this:

Yes, you are right indeed, just checked the folder with the driver-files,they are all "digital signed" , remains the question why we can not see this in the device-manager, all these drivers are " not signed" , and on other tab of the properties they are signed by Microsoft !


Do we see this only when using Powershell for inserting the certificate ?

No, this has nothing to do with the procedure of the Certficate import.
Since the same mod+signed drivers are shown on my system (OS freshly installed) as digitally signed, I suspect, that it has something to do with the fact, that you had updated your Win10 v1607, which had already used my mod+signed drivers, to v1703 with the consequence, that the Intel Chipset Device INF files were overwritten by the older, but "better" WHQL certified files.
As I already have written: It doesn't matter whether a "driver" (in this case it is just a text file) is shown for the user as being digitally signed or not. The only important thing is, that the "driver" has been successfully installed and works properly.

Hello

I am aware the driver didn't install and updated the installer accordingly - please re download to get the fixed copy.

EDIT by Fernando: Added link removed, because it is not topic related

To whom did you address this tip?

Thanks for the detailed tutorial.

As far as I know Windows 8+ versions already contain USB 3.0 drivers for Intel's hardware and you don't need to install anything else to get your devices working.

Do you know any specific advantages of this method, or do you perhaps have some interesting benchmark results? I didn't test it myself, I'm just curious.

@adsvoo:
Yes, Win8 and Win10 do contain generic MS USB 3.0/3.1 drivers, which do support Intel USB 3.0/3.1 Controllers and Hub devices as well, but according to the report of many users the Intel USB 3.0/3.1 drivers have a much better performance.
That is why I offer mod+signed variants of the latest Intel USB 3.0/3.1 drivers, which natively only do support Win7, by adding the compatibility with Win8/8.1/10.
You can test it yourself, which drivers are the best for your specific system.
