Preparing for Optical Disk Drive Testing

Note This content applies to the Windows Logo Kit (WLK). For the latest information using the new Windows Hardware Certification Kit (HCK), see Windows HCK User's Guide on the Windows Hardware Dev Center.

Before running the tests, you must configure the system and install the operating system. This section summarizes the related procedures.

For a complete list of required hardware, software, and tester knowledge, see Optical Disk Drive Testing.

Many of the tests in the Microsoft Windows Logo Kit (WLK) require that the test system restarts (often more than once) to complete a test run. To enable this restart, DTM configures the client to automatically log on by using the DMLLUAdminUser account. This configuration occurs when you first create your submission. DTM also turns off workstation locking and prevents the machine from automatically hibernating or sleeping. If you want to open a remote desktop connection to the client after you start a submission, use the DTMLLUAdminUser account.

Test System Assembly

Note This content applies to the Windows Logo Kit (WLK). For the latest information using the new Windows Hardware Certification Kit (HCK), see Windows HCK User's Guide on the Windows Hardware Dev Center.

  1. Turn off the test system and disconnect it from the power supply.

  2. Install a hard disk drive.

    Note

    For ATA/ATAPI, install the hard disk drive as stand-alone device 0 on the primary ATA/ATAPI channel.

    For SCSI, set the SCSI ID on the SCSI hard disk drive to 0.

  3. If the host controller is not embedded on the system motherboard, install the host controller.

  4. Install the test devices into the test system by attaching it to the host controller.

    Note

    For ATA/ATAPI, install the test device as Device 1 or Cable Select Device 1 on the primary ATA/ATAPI channel. Or install the test device as Device 0, Device 1, Cable Select Device 0, or Cable Select Device 1 on the secondary ATA/ATAPI channel.

    For SCSI, set the SCSI ID on the test device to 6.

    For USB, do not connect the test device to the downstream port of the high-speed USB 2.0 hub directly to the root hub of the USB 2.0 controller.

Test System Configuration

Note This content applies to the Windows Logo Kit (WLK). For the latest information using the new Windows Hardware Certification Kit (HCK), see Windows HCK User's Guide on the Windows Hardware Dev Center.

  1. Turn on the test system.

  2. Set the system BIOS to support the S3 state.

  3. Install the appropriate Microsoft Windows operating system on the hard disk drive in the test system.

  4. If it is necessary, install any drivers that the manufacturer supplies that the devices in the test system require.

  5. Install DTM client.

  6. Configure the machine for testing in DTM Studio.

  7. Add the test machine to a machine pool.

    Note For more information, see Grouping Client Computers into Machine Pools.

Note All adapters are operated with BIOS enabled and external termination unless otherwise noted.
