The book Windows Internals, Part 2 (Developer Reference) provides an in-depth knowledge of modern Windows internals. This book is a must-read for advanced computing professionals who want to understand how Windows core components work under the hood. It provides unparalleled insight based on insider access to Microsoft source code, with hands-on experiments using the latest debugging tools to show Windows’ internal behaviors firsthand. The seventh edition of this book is fully updated through the May 2021 (21H1/2104) updates to Windows 10 and Windows Server (2022, 2019, and 2016). This edition includes extensive content on Hyper-V and fully rewritten chapters on the boot process, new storage technologies, and Windows system and management mechanisms.

This book is written by leading Windows insiders who have expertise in their respective areas. It helps readers discover system mechanisms for serving device drivers and applications, including ALPC, Object Manager, synchronization, WNF, WoW64, and the processor execution model. Additionally, this book explores underlying hardware architecture, including trap processing, segmentation, and side channel vulnerabilities.

Readers will also learn about Windows virtualization and how virtualization-based security (VBS) protects against OS vulnerabilities. The book delves into key management and configuration mechanisms, including the Registry, Windows services, WMI, and Task Scheduling. You can explore diagnostic services such as Event Tracing for Windows (ETW) and DTrace. It also covers how the cache manager and file system drivers interact to provide reliable support for files, directories, and disks, including on Persistent Memory (NVDIMM) DAX devices. Readers can understand NTFS, ReFS, and other Windows file systems.

The authors review Windows startup/shutdown operations, and OS components involved in boot flow. Additionally, you can analyze UEFI-based Secure Boot, Measured Boot, and Secure Launch. This book is suitable for experienced programmers, architects, software quality and performance specialists, administrators, security practitioners, and support professionals, but it assumes you are a Windows power user.
