    A6.3.1 SEE A6.4.1
    A6.3.2 Product passes related Windows Logo Program testing

    Product is submitted to the appropriate WHQL test program and passes all testing for the Windows Logo Program for hardware:

    • Windows Whistler Server and Advanced Server: Pass tests in HCT 10.0 (or later), as described in detail in the WHQL Test Specification and the Microsoft Windows Hardware Compatibility Test Kit 10.0 documentation.

    See “Server Testing Overview” in the HCT documentation.

    • Windows 2000, Windows NT 4.0: Pass tests in HCT 9.502, as described in the HCT documentation.



    A6.4 Server System - Windows Experience

    A6.4.1 Server supports additional requirements for PCI

    [SDG3:32,39,48]

    • Server that supports more than 4 GB of memory supports a 64-bit PCI bus architecture. [SDG3:32]

    • All 66-MHz and 64-bit PCI buses in a server system comply with PCI 2.2 and other requirements. [SDG3:48]

    • PCI devices do not use the <1 MB BAR type. [SDG3:39]
    A6.4.2 Server includes USB controller with at least one USB port

    [SDG3:56-61; see also B2.6.2]

    With firmware, device, and driver support compliant with the USB specifications.

    USB hubs, if used, must be self-powered.

    A6.4.3 DELETED
    A6.4.4 All memory visible to the operating system as system memory is cacheable; system memory includes ECC memory protection

    [SDG3:7]

    All system memory except for 4 MB must be completely available for the system to use at boot time and cannot be locked from use by the operating system.



    Minimum system memory requirements for servers are defined in WL 2.
    A6.4.5 System that provides headless server capabilities meets minimum requirements
