That is strange. The 8.2.0 drivers are release signed with an EV token that 
should mean they deploy on Windows 10 without the need for testsigning mode. 
It's possible Microsoft have changed something in recent Windows 10... which 
version of Windows 10 are you using? (Also I assume you downloaded drivers from 
https://xenbits.xen.org/pvdrivers/win/8.2.0/). I just double checked xenbus.sys 
and xenbus.cat and they are certainly both signed with the correct certificate 
(Linux Foundation SHA256) and properly time-stamped. Could you verify those 
files in your copy of the tarball?
