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.

The sections in this topic describe the system test categories that Driver Test Manager (DTM) supports for Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Home Server, and Windows XP.

Windows 7

On Windows 7, DTM supports the following system test categories:

  • All-In-One

  • Desktop

  • Mobile

  • Motherboard

  • Previously Logo'd Motherboard

  • Ultra-Mobile

  • GPU Family Update

The system test categories for Windows 7 are categorized into five form factors:

All-In-One

A uniprocessor or multiprocessor system that has a permanently attached integrated display. This is a fixed form factor desktop system that typically includes integrated components based out of mobile hardware designs.

Desktop

A uniprocessor or multiprocessor computer that requires AC power for continuous operation.

Mobile

A uniprocessor or multiprocessor computer that a person can physically carry, has integrated display and input devices, and has a battery that can provide continuous operation when the computer is not plugged in.

Motherboard

The physical arrangement in a computer that contains the system's basic circuitry and components.

Ultra-Mobile

A mobile system that has a 10.2 inch or smaller screen size.

Note   GPU family update is not a separate form factor. You need to run the GPU family update only when you are swapping GPU across the family on a system that has already passed a full system run, as defined in Windows Logo Policy-0017.

The system test categories for Windows Vista are categorized in the following qualification levels:

Premium

A product that is being tested is compliant when it meets the premium logo requirements, as defined in the Windows Logo Program documentation. This level of compliance indicates to a customer that the product enables additional or enhanced capability with the Windows operating system to enable a premium experience.

Basic

A product that is being tested is compliant when it meets the basic logo requirements, as defined in the Windows Logo Program documentation. This level of compliance indicates to a customer that the product works well with Windows. The basic logo requirements ensure reliability, stability, security, and proper installation, and implements functionality that take advantage of some of the latest Windows innovations.

The system test categories for Windows Vista are categorized in two market segments:

  • Business
    • Information worker. This segment helps workers use their computer more effectively with new tools to help protect their system, easier ways to find and use their information, and better integration across applications, devices, and networks.
    • Small business. This segment helps workers keep their computers running more smoothly and more securely, while giving them powerful new ways to find and use their information. It offers an improved ability to connect technologies and people so that workers can focus on running their business.
  • Consumer
    • The operating system is designed for digital entertainment and personal productivity around the home or on the go, integrating the widest range of applications, services, and hardware in a familiar way so that people can easily and confidently use technology to achieve their goals and pursue their passions.

The system test categories for Windows Vista are categorized into five form factors:

All-In-One
