Starting in November 2015, the Hypervisor Code Integrity (HVCI) Readiness Test will be added as part of the Windows Hardware Compatibility Program. The purpose of the test is to ensure that drivers are compatible with Device Guard. For more information about the test, see the blog post on Driver Compatibility with Device Guard in Windows 10 .


For Windows Server 2016 submissions, the test will be required starting in November.


For Windows 10 desktop submissions, the test will be required starting in September 2016. Until then, Errata ID 5792 will filter the test for Windows 10 Desktop submissions.


This test is currently available in the Hardware Lab Kit and is mapped to the following requirements:



  • Filter.Driver.DeviceGuard.DriverCompatibility

  • Device.Devfund.DeviceGuard.DriverCompatibility


At this time, the test results are accurate for device drivers. An updated test will be made available for filter driver testing at a later date. For current filter driver testing, refer to the How to verify driver compatibility section in Driver Compatibility with Device Guard in Windows 10 .


An updated playlist that contains this test will be available soon.
