Restart using advanced options for disable signed drivers does not work. Disabling Signed drivers using testing mode in terminal commands (running as administrator) does not work either. I got "bcdedit error data elements protected" or something like that. Please, I beg help for installing USB Blaster driver on Windows (8, 8.1, 10). Altera, Terasic and Intel support is useless, they send me to "post my question" in public blogs, instead of just providing a working driver.
Have you tried installing the drivers this way:
If you have the USB-Blaster II cable, then try these steps:
Driver Installation for Altera USB-Blaster II
Hi Abraham. Thanks a lot for your post. It worked at the end and now my USB blaster driver is installed and running. Seting the path to the driver was my first problem, I was seting it all the way to the proper driver and this time I left it set only to the "drivers" directory. Doing this I still got the unsigned driver problem, but with diferent popups than before. Then I tweek using the advanced reboot options disabling driver signature check. I did all steps again and during the installation procedure I got warning popups from windows OS and McAfee antivirus. I had to answere "install it anyway" to both. After few minutes finally driver was installed, but still warning popups from windows saying I have an unsigned driver and suggesting to uninstall it. I just acknowledge the message.
Now my DE0 Control pannel got commnication with the FPGA board and I was able to test all my hardware OK. Finally. Thanks.!!
