How to Use the Appendixes
Appendix Sections and Subsections
In Appendix A, “System Requirements Checklist,” and Appendix B, “Device Requirements Checklist,” each system and device type is identified in a separate section. These section numbers do not necessarily correlate directly with WHQL test categories. For devices, these sections are not related to how the device is attached to the computer.
Each group of system-specific or device-specific requirements is divided into the following subsections.
#.#.1 Windows Compatibility
