How do we know the order in which drivers are loaded in Windows 2000? OK, let me make my question more clear: We have some driver modules developed in our project and we want Windows 2000 to load these drivers in the order we want during system reboot. How do we achieve this? How do we set/see the order in which drivers are loaded in Windows 2000?
To determine the order in which drivers are loaded, enabled the Logged option via the Advanced Boot Menu (accessed via F8 from the boot menu) to create the bootlog.txt file.
