I have been waiting on these new signed drivers.  Thanks for finally making 
them available!

I have tested and run into a problems unfortunately so I wanted to report this.

First I tried uninstalling the EJB digital drivers 
(ejbpv_Vista2008x64_1.0.1105.msi) and installing these new drivers on Windows 
2008 R2 x64 existing VPS.  After rebooting Windows 2008 R2 hangs forever at 

Secondly I have installed a clean Windows 2008 R2 and then installed all the 
drivers and when I reboot it goes into recovery mode.  I happen to check 
Windows device manager before I rebooted and I noticed that the "Xen PV Bus" 
driver has a yellow warning symbol as shown in the screenshot > 
https://postimg.org/image/x08g7n4wn/   it says it cannot verify the digital 
signature for the Xen PV Bus drivers.  Nothing was done but the install of 
Windows and then immediate install of the drivers.

My Xen servers are built via SolusVM install script and this particular server 
is xen_version 4.6.1-11.el6 on centos6.

The tarballs are now in their permanent home 
(https://xenbits.xen.org/pvdrivers/win/8.1.0) and are linked from the project 
front page (http://www.xenproject.org/developers/teams/windows-pv-drivers.html).
