Now I remember you name. Several years ago, you tried a similar ill-fated
effort to resurrect an antique RAM disk driver, and you were unprepared for
that effort as well.
Can you or someone else please add those debug prints?
No, we can't. We all have jobs.
I can see the register values via WinDbg. Which ones should I look at?
If you don’t know the difference between a CPU register and a hardware
register, then you are in no position to attempt to debug a driver like this.
Look, it’s time for total honesty here. What’s your real goal? If you are
just doing this for fun, then you need to give up. You’re dealing with an
antique, complicated driver written for antique hardware that you’re trying to
run on a modern simulation of the hardware on an antique operating system.
Without a deep understanding of the driver model, the hardware spec, and the VM
environment, it is hopeless.
If you just want audio in your VM, then you already know the Realtek driver
If you’re doing this for a product to sell for a company, then you need to hire
someone to do this work, assuming you can find someone who is interested. Even
that will be difficult, since AC97 long ago ceased to be relevant.
