    I enabled verifier.exe, default settings, on Windows XP. On-line
    instructions on how to use verifier.exe states "All Driver Verifier
    violations result in bug checks." But during boot up, I simply received a
    black screen that stated:
    stihp2k.sys - WDM driver error 20e

    I know what driver this is. But the error is not a bug check. Why not?
    And what does the error mean?

    Thank you,

  2. did you attach a kernel debugger after enabling verifier? if not, that you
    must do that as well.
