HCK test target machine detection problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I've a problem in the detection of test targets machines, doing minidriver certification tests.

    I'm using 1 PC with dual boot, a Windows 7 AMD64 (NETWORK NAME RND-PC) and Windows 7 x86 (NETWORK NAME W7-HCK-32).

    I've successfully completed the certification tests on the "RND-PC" W7 AMD64 OS.

    Then I've restarted the test target it and I've selected the "W7-HCK-32" OS, W7 x86.

    In the machine pool where "RND-PC" was listed as "Windows 7 Client x64" now there is "W7-HCK-32" incorrectly listed as "Windows 7 Client x64".
    In the project test results the tests are now not anymore associated with "RND-PC", but with "W7-HCK-32"!

    Creating a new project and selecting "W7-HCK-32" as target and the device to test, the HCK

    Studio is convinced that the machine is actually a x64 and want to execute the x64 tests!

    What can I do? Why HCK Studio thinks that "W7-HCK-32" and "RND-PC" are same machine?

  • Hi,

    First WHCK doesn't support of Multi-Boot OS.. anyway refer the below thread once you will get clarity..

  • Can you try booting off of two different hard drives for each OS rather than the same partition?  A different model as well as I believe that is a part of the id.

  • As YesubabuGudehas has said, this is not a supported configuration.

    Both boot options are being associated with the same client entry on the controller.  The client configuration data returned from the client system is only being collected for that one entry.  This will cause the client configuration data is going to become a mix from the 32-bit and 64-bit installs which will result in the HCK Studio returning the wrong information.
