SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • You create a Windows Embedded CE 6.0 R3-based image that uses the HIVE-based registry.
  • You start the image on a device. During "boot phase 0" when the "boot hive" in read-only memory (Boot.hv) is being used, a volatile registry key is created in a driver that is loaded.

In this scenario, HIVE-based registry corruption may occur, and the registry keys cannot be read.
