I changed my bios setting to boot from it before my hard drive and it still does fine with my win 7 disk.

This isn't a Mac forum, don't get all pissy because somebody actually likes to install their own software instead of letting their manufacturer hold their hand through the entire process. As of now, I have not found a solution yet.
So how do I switch off the Win10 v1607 requirement for optical disk drivers to be digitally signed by Microsoft? If you're interested in something a little more feature-filled, there are a number of paid apps out there. Whenever I put a disk in now the computer just seems to have a fit and not respond, guessing the drives broke I also tried my external disk drive and that worked fine.

I should not require a factory image in order to obtain a single piece of software which I have purchased. If it is working and detected try updating the driver from the company's website.

I have spent hours researching, nothing worked until this solution! My factory installation has been wiped, along with the recovery partition, so that is not an option, nor should it be a requirement to enable a feature for which I have already paid. It worked flawlessly through win 7 and it still physically works. It is not in device manage, system info, disk manager, absolutely no where.
