Windows 10 "Reset this PC" NDIS 6 Filter Driver Installation RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a NDIS 6 Light Weight Filter that installs

    and runs on Windows 10 (OS Version: 10.0.10240) without

    This driver is included in an OEM recovery image used
    by the Windows 10 "Settings->Update & Security->Recovery->

    Reset this PC" feature.

    After the "Reset this PC" is run (with "Keep my files" option)
    the driver is installed but not running:
    - The Event Viewer / System log contains an entry that the

      service was installed (event ID 7045/qualifier 16384).

    - The Event Viewer / System log contains an 2 entries that the
      "following boot-start or system-start driver did not load"
       (event ID 7026/qualifier 49152).

    Examination of the registry shows that the key for the LWF
    is present in HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services but
    other registry keys/values are missing.
    - Normally the Linkage\FilterList value for some of the adapters
      in HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\
       {4d36e972-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318} includes the
       GUID for our driver but our driver is not linked to any adapter.
    - There is no entry for our driver contained in the list of

      filter drivers found at:

    Has anyone else experienced issues installing drivers using
    the Win 10 "Reset this PC" feature?
    Are there modifications to the .INF and/or INetCfg API required
    to install drivers during a reset?
