    UEFI POST Time enforcements relaxed further

               

    We've added more allowances to the enforcement of             UEFI POST Time requirement between now and the enforcement date.

               

    Conditions:

               
      • All-in-one PC             systems, laptops, or notebooks with a 17 inch (or larger)             integrated display that use a rotational hard disk are eligible for             Windows 8 certification, as long as such systems pass UEFI POST             TIME test within 4 seconds (or 4.3 with TPM enabled) using any             other rotational disk.
      • Systems             manufacturers should prepare their system submissions normally,             including the failing Post time results as measured with the             shipping hard drive. To have that failure overturned by the             certification review team, mention ID 478 in the README file and             include in the README folder a log file showing that any other             rotational disk was able to pass the UEFI POST TIME test.
      • Systems shipping             after April 15, 2013, must meet requirements as published.
                                         

      These and all other UEFI requirement relaxations             expire on April 15, 2013.

                 

                 

      HCK RTM required for submissions as of Nov. 15

                 

      We would like to remind our partners that starting             November 15, 2012, submissions to the Sysdev website must use the             Release to Market (RTM) version of the Windows Hardware             Certification Kit. The HCK Release Preview is being retired on that             date.

      Early Bird Special for Windows 8 and Windows Server             2012

                 

      The Windows Certification Program ensures that every             certified product has been tested to install readily and run             reliably on Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012.

                 

      To help our hardware partners achieve logo             qualification, the Windows Certification Program team is pleased to             announce that for a limited time we're reducing the submission fee.             Until general availability of Windows 8 on October 26, 2012, the             fee for every new submission for Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012             certifications is only $100, a $150 discount.

                 

      This is a great opportunity for device and system             partners to lower development costs by downloading the latest             Windows Hardware Certification Kit (HCK) and testing your system or             device for submission during this limited time frame.

                 
                             
                 

      Windows RTM required for submissions as of Jan. 1

                 

      We would like to remind our partners that starting             January 1, 2013, submissions to the Hardware Dashboard must use the             RTM versions of Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 releases.

                 
                             
                 

      Windows Logo Kit 1.6 usage guidelines

                 

      Windows Logo Kit (WLK) 1.6 will remain open to             submissions for the foreseeable future. To help WLK 1.6 test kit             partners properly time their transitions to the new test kit             version, we'll provide at least 90 days' notice before retirement             comes.

                 
                             
                 

      Workaround for radio manager test failure

                 

      A known issue is generating "Could not CoCreate             Media Radio Manager" errors in these HCK tests:

                 
      • Radio Manager -             Verify Radio State
      • Radio Manager -             Verify SetRadioState
                             

      If the Third-Party Radio Manager is using the             HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\RadioManagement registry key,             the tests may fail with this error. It happens due to a permissions             setting on the registry key. If you get this error in your HCK run,             please use this workaround:

                 
                    
      1. Change                  the owner of                  HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\RadioManagement to Authenticated                  Users.             
                       
        1. From                   the Start screen, type Run, and then choose Run,                   or press Windows key+R             
        2. Type                   regedit and press Enter.             
        3. Navigate                   to HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\RadioManagement             
        4. Right-click                   the key and select Permissions.             
        5. Click                   the Advanced button.             
        6. Click                   the change link next to Owner.             
        7. Enter                   Authenticated Users in the Enter the object name to                   select box, and then click the Check Names button.                   Click OK after the name has been automatically                   detected.             
        8. Back                   in the Advanced Security Settings for RadioManagement                   window, select the Replace owner on subcontainers and                   objects check box.             
        9. Click                   OK.            
                    
      2. Add                  Authenticated Users to the Permissions for                  RadioManagement groups. If Authenticated Users is already                  listed in the Group or user names box, skip to                  Step 3.            
                 
      • Click the Add button             in the Permissions for RadioManagement window.
      • Enter Authenticated             Users in the Enter the object name to select box, and             then click the Check Names button. Click OK after the             name has been automatically detected.
                             
                    
      1. Give                  Authenticated Users full control.            
                 
                    
                       
        1. Authenticated                   Users is now listed in the Permissions                   for RadioManagement window.             
        2. Choose                   Authenticated Users, and then and select the Full                   Control check box.             
        3. Click                   OK.            
                    
      1. Rerun                  the tests.           
                 
                             
                 

      Submission policy for desktops using a certified             motherboard

                 

      When you make your desktop submission, include a             Readme.doc file that references manual errata ID 738 and the name             of the motherboard and submission ID used in the test system             exactly as the motherboard name appears in the Logo'd Compatibility             List. The inclusion of this information indicates that Audio             Fidelity testing has already been satisfied by previous testing for             motherboard certification. The submission ID number can be obtained             from the Logo'd Compatibility List site.

                 
                             
                 

      How to handle a product type mismatch in HCK Studio

                 

      Question: When I select my device, the Product types             summary in the right pane doesn't display the product type that I             want to certify. What should I do?

                 

      Answer: Sometimes, features that are required for a             product type aren't automatically detected on a device. In those             cases, you must manually select the missing feature(s) that             correspond to your product type. After all of the features have             been selected, the product type appears. When you add features to             your selection, the tests that are required for those features are             automatically added to your list of tests.

                 

      To manually configure a product type

                 
                    
      1. Find                  your product type in the Windows                  HCK Product Type Test Matrix.            
      2. Determine                  the list of features that are required for your product type.            
      3. In                  the Selection tab in HCK Studio, right-click your selection to                  see a list of features. The check boxes for features that have                  been automatically detected display as selected.
               
               

    Select the check box for any missing feature that             corresponds to your product type.
