Problem with install a WDK7.1 ahci driver on Windows7 x64 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm going to make a ahci driver for my device.

    I download WDK7.1 and build the sample driver "msahci" under Windows7 x64 free build environment.

    I use bcdedit.exe to change Windows 7 into Test mode, and then update the Standard AHCI 1.0 Serial ATA Controller with the msahci driver I built.

    The Windows ask me to restart my Windows.

    After the system reboot.I got 0xc000000f and Windows can't boot success.

    Anyone can help me? the same sample driver works on Windows7 X86 and Windows8 x86

    only fail on x64 platform......

  • Did you sign the driver package? Did you embed sign the sys file? I would suggest getting a non boot critical driver loaded on x64 before messing with the boot stack

  • I didn't embed sign my sys file, so I use bcdedit.exe /set TESTSIGNING ON to turn the test mode.

    Is it right that  I can test my driver without digital signing in test mode?

    I don't know why I just build the wdk 7.1  sample driver without any change and cause this issue on x64 platform only....
