NDIS6 support for XP?


Recommended Posts

@Mov AX, 0xDEAD

can you see, why the i211 works with kdnet.dll (better kdstub.dll) from win8.1

but the i219 not


EDIT: I see, that only the i211 gets attention in kdstub.dll and this via e1000_init_nvm_params_i211 proc near.

So, may be that for the i211, i217, i218 those nvm parameter are the same.

But nvm is different on i219.



The i211 has a transmit buffer of 128 KB and a receive buffer of 128 KB.

In contrast, the i219 has a larger memory cache with a transmit buffer of 256 KB and a receive buffer of 256 KB.



The i211 has a NVM size of 64KB.

The i219 Ethernet controller uses a larger NVM size of 256KB.

Is there a Vista bit32 driver for i219



This is, what I have found for Vista bit32.

The driver with "r" goes up to i210 and may be worth a try.

This "r" driver fullfilles all dependencies under win7 SP1, but does not work direct for the i211 or i219

Has anyone thought about or managed to add the support for NDIS LWF drivers to XP in this forum? What about WFP?

Because I think these two are a very important part of supporting many of vista+ programs.

I thought I'd try and take another shot at porting NDIS 6 to XP.

I got a D1 BSOD in netio.sys this time.


My most recent build if you want to try and debug, no rush.




looking at your last debug log from when you got a D1 BSOD i netio.sys I looked at the point of failure in a disassembler and from what I can tell I think it has to do with the hashtable functions that I stubbed, might try to implement.

I just test, that your ntoskrn8.sys together with the files from Longhorn 5048 is

downward compatible with i211 on the Asrock z370 k6 board.

So, just now on this board runs ndis6 under XP SP3

WOW, How to patch driver for the WinXP 64-bit?
