    Hi all,

    Only "File System Filter Driver Load Order Groups" are documented in
    the DDK Doc. However, many other driver load order groups, such as
    "System Bus Extender", "Primary Disk", etc., can't be found from the
    DDK doc or from the Internet.

    Where can I get the definitive information on them?

    Any hint will be highly appreciated, thanks in advance.

    Look in the registry at
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\GroupOrderList that has
    a key for every load order group.

  4. note that this list is not definitive. new groups can be added, existing
    groups can be removed from release to release or when a driver installs
