Use your Apple USB Ethernet adapter on Windows 10
To use your Apple USB Ethernet adapter on Windows 10 you have to do a few things.
First you need to Disable driver signature enforcement.
Go to start and type ‘advanced’ and click ‘change advanced startup options’
At advanced start up, choose restart now.
On the blue boot screen you click:
Troubleshoot, Advanced options, Startup Settings -> restart.
When rebooted choose the 7th bullet “Disable driver signature enforcement”.
Then you need to Download the driver, i’ve uploaded a .zip file with the driver and a changed .inf file (thanks to http://ashleyangell.com/2010/09/windows-7-drivers-for-apples-usb-ethernet-adapter/). Extract the folder.
Go to device manager (Windows + X) -> device manager and select the Apple usb adapter.
Right click it and select update driver software.
Browse to the just extracted files and click Open.
At the warning screen choose; Install this driver anyway
The apple usb ethernet adapter is now succesfully installed.

Thanks for this! Do we need to go back and restart again and enable the thing we disabled earlier though?
