“UEFI-Rebooter is a bash script for implementing dual boot through uefi.” It is labelled “Windows Boot Manager”, and calls Linux’s efibootmgr as it’s main tool.
Syscall Monitor is a system monitor program (like Sysinternal’s Process Monitor) using Intel VT-X/EPT for Windows7+
It requires Intel x86/x64 systems with Intel VT-x and EPT support, running Microsoft Windows.
“VBS will enable No-Execute (NX) protection on UEFI runtime service code and data memory regions. UEFI runtime service code must support read-only page protections, and UEFI runtime service data must not be executable.”
I’m glad Alex is reading these Microsoft updates better than I am. 🙂 Glad to know that VBS is not VBScript.
These Microsoft pages have recently (last month) been updated. No changelog, so unclear what has changed. 😦
OSR has a nice blog post that shows how to debug bad drivers. OSR is a smart group of Windows-centric driver consultants, check out their NT Insider newsletter if you’re into NT. And their NTdev mailing list.
[…]The bugcheck makes much more sense now. Someone’s stack expansion callback was called at DISPATCH_LEVEL (Arg2 == 2) and returned at PASSIVE_LEVEL (Arg1 == 0). That’s against the rules, thus you get a system crash. Personally I would call this a bug in KeExpandKernelStackAndCalloutEx seeing as how it is generating an IRQL_UNEXPECTED_VALUE using invalid (unexpected?) arguments. At a minimum the documentation is currently wrong though and I have filed a bug to try to get that addressed.
Hmm, it looks like OSRonline.com is becoming ‘legacy’. If there’s not a future home for some of the tools listed there, you might want to grab a set of tools while you still can. The tools are somewhat like SysInternals-style of tools.
Kevin Bowling has an article that shows how to setup a UEFI system to work with FreeBSD — including ZFS on root — and another UEFI OS like Windows.
I’m not sure if this article is an improved version of or just a rebroadcast of:
