Advanced Debug/Diagnostic Features

Post by tscherno » Wed Nov 02, 2005 8:34 pm

*Detailed information about overall hardware status on serial port.

*Always send bootlog to the serial port.

*On bluescreen or sudden reboot, send every avaible information to serial port and try to make a dump on the harddrive.

*Console access over serial port

This could give us better diagnostic capabilitys. For example, when a Video Card fails to work you could read the problem because there is always status information on the COM-Port about the hardware errors etc.

Maybe even a own debug subsystem with a few tools to save files and get debug. etc. *dream* :P

Well I think I could write a Class wich writes to the COM Port.^^
