Loading a Windows Kernel Driver to Windows 10

Loading a Driver

On the system where you want to load your driver (debugee), from an elevated command prompt, disable the driver integrity checks so that we can load our unsigned drivers onto Windows 10:

bcdedit.exe /set nointegritychecks on

Once you have rebooted the system, open up the OSR Loader and load the driver as shown below:

Note that my driver name was kmdfHelloDriver. We can now confirm the driver loaded successfully by debugging the kernel:

0: kd> db kmdfHelloDriver

Additionally, we can check it this way by showing some basic details about the loaded module:

0: kd> ln kmdfHelloDriver

If we check it via the service configuration manager, we also see that our driver is now loaded and running:

sc.exe query kmdfHelloDriver
