#38 new enhancement

Improve Error Messages - Enable Quiet Mode /Q

Description

It may be a good idea to improve the error messages, or try to standardize the message, to know exactly on boot.

for example right now the message it is:

Win32k - Odin 32 support driver. (Build ....)

Failed before probing kernel. Failed before searching for symbolfile

ProbeKernel? failed with rc=-17099 (.....)

I think/recommend to change it to:

WIN32K: Odin 32 support driver. (Build ....) WIN32K: Failed before probing kernel. WIN32K: Failed before searching for symbolfile WIN32K: ProbeKernel? failed with rc=-17099 (.....)

And try to standarize every boot message from Win32k.sys to start with "WIN32K:"

Also, I haven't been able to make a Quiet boot (non-verbouse) mode to run. It will be great if /Q could be implemented to not show any message at boot.

Thanks.

A driver should never output anything during load, unless an error happened. As such, a /Q switch is never needed. Standard is to make a /V switch available, in case user wants extra output.

Thank you for the report.

Note though that Win32k.sys is not currently supported. We generally do not fix bugs in there and don't recommend it to be used since it makes little to no sense these days.
