Microsoft Windows Logo Program System and Device Requirements — 49
Announcement of additional future requirements will be published at http://www.microsoft.com/winlogo/hardware/.
A6.0 Server System Requirements
This section describes additional requirements or exceptions to the requirements defined earlier in Section A1.0.
For Itanium-based server systems, all requirements in A5.0 are included by reference.
A6.0.1 System Exceptions and Notes for Servers
In addition to the requirements defined in A6.0, the following additional notes and exceptions are defined elsewhere in Appendix A:
Ref: A1.4.2 Correct implementation of power management For server systems, network adapters and other peripherals are not required to support wake from D3.
A6.0.2 Device Exceptions and Notes for Servers
In addition to the requirements defined in A6.0, the following additional notes and exceptions are defined elsewhere in Appendix B:
Ref: B10.4.4.5 Windows Server 2003, Standard Edition: SCSI and Fibre Channel hard drives implement complete identification strings.
Ref: B10.9 RAID requirements.
Ref: B10.10 Fibre Channel requirements.
A6.1 Server System - Windows Compatibility
A6.1.1 – See A1.1
A6.1.2 If legacy components have been removed, system includes correct FADT table entries and necessary ISR support for boot
System designs that remove legacy (port 60h/port 64h) keyboard controllers, typically implemented using 8042 or similar controllers, must meet these requirements to function with Windows. Specifically, these systems must properly set Fixed ACPI Description Table Boot Architecture Flags as described in the ACPI specification and ACPI Specification Changes for Legacy Free, as described at http://www.microsoft.com/hwdev/tech/onnow/LF-ACPI.asp.
System designs that reduce the amount of legacy ISR support in conjunction with other legacy removal efforts (such as 8042 or 60h/64h keyboard controller removal) must still provide the necessary ISRs required to boot x86-based systems using BIOS. The minimum requirements include support for ISR 8h, 13h, and 19h (all functions), and ISR 15h, function E820h.
