    I need to check the OS initialization phase in my DriverEntry routine and
    prevent driver loading if it occurs not in boot-phase.

    Thanks for assistance.

  2. There is no interface to find OS initialization phase.

    May be exist some undocumented way to determine this? I need it only for
    in-house purposes.

    NT has no notifications of init phases, like win9x.
    Maybe you can explain what you're doing?

    Hello,

    Just an idea:
    Write different drivers for different driver starting stage "Start=1",
    "Start=2", "Start=3", ...
    Then have each driver in its DriverEntry talk w/ your querying driver and
    report to it at what stage the system is currently running.

    Regards,
    Elias
