Got most of this info from the sevenforums.com, but thought I'd repost here. I was so happy to get this trusty old scanner working, I thought I'd share what worked for me.

At which point, you need to disable device driver signing. From the following URL, Option 2: http://www.technipages.com/enable-di...driver-signingOriginally Posted by Windows 10
Now, try to do the whole "have disk" routine, select LiDE 60 when it pops up and your scanner will be installed as a LiDE 60, but will work great. Hope this helps someone else out there with a perfectly still usable scanner.Option 2 – Disable From Menus
I figured this was security that was built into Windows to prevent me from installing bad drivers. This is a feature called Device Driver Signing. After going through the steps to disable driver signing in Windows 8, I was able to get my community drivers installed. Here’s how I did it.
- Select the “Start” button.
- Type “startup”.
- Select “Change advanced startup settings“.
- Select “Restart now” under the “Advanced startup” area.
- Select “Troubleshoot“.
- Select “Advanced Options“.
- Select “Startup Options“.
- Select “Restart“.
- A menu will appear where you can press “7” on your keyboard to choose “Disable driver signing enforcement“.
Now Device Driver Signing should be disabled, allowing you to install any driver you like in Windows 10 until you reboot.
