Windows Operative System Architecture RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,       

    i'm not sure  about if this is the right place to post my qtion.   

    i'm now starting (really starting) in kernel mode development, but actually my knowledge about the operative system internal functionality are very little.


    Fine, i want to learn how windows works in the deep system internals...   the basics at least  .


    Where  i can find related and good quality documentation about the internal windows operative system architecture? ( you know, kernel, user mode, subsystems etc )       

     

    thanks for your help!       

    ;)

  • Start from these books http://www.solsem.com/books.html

    that from Windows SDK and look for the ntdll.dll manual, where a lot of system functions described

  • I recomend to buy "Windows Internals, 4th edition" right now and start working.

    Vista will be ready in the end of the fall, add half year till the bool will be ready and u got the about data is summer 2007 :)

    Do u really want to wait? and take into account that companies won't start moving to vista just after it release - it takes a lot of time.

    I know production systems that are still under Win2k

    BTW, you need the concept, not the latest breaking changes. These books and ntdll manuals give it to u.
