I compiled my own truecrypt for windows and doing the suggested F8 to run unsigned drivers worked. I was able to install and run truecrypt successfully.

However when i restart the machine and let it boot normally I can no longer use truecrypt because of unsigned drivers even though I have it installed. What can I do to boot normally and use my build of truecrypt? Can i modify the registry, add an exception, can i sign my own driver without paying anything (but it probably only work on my machine which is 100% fine),

What can i do to run my own truecrypt build on a normal bootup?

Try to use bcdedit.exe to set testsigning value to yes/true.

Nice idea but it didnt work. – acidzombie24 Nov 17 '12 at 3:44
Also you need to sign the driver from Visual Studio. Using a test certificate. – pbies Nov 17 '12 at 3:51
Look also here for another option. – pbies Nov 17 '12 at 3:54
