Or maybe to put it another way, Windows itself can't "require" the signature checking because that happens at a layer below and previous to what the running OS kernel can control. There isn't a mechanism for a running system, doing licensing or validity checks, to verify that it was booted "securely", the verification is forward, not backwards.

Do I have that right, mjg59? 8-)
