    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.

    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?

    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.
