get DDK - Driver Development Kit, and learn how to find info you need on MSDN


While MSDN is a great resource for any developer, its overall size and layout makes it a pain in the back side when trying to find specific answers to your questions (not to mention the fact that not all information provided comes with examples that are of use).

With that said, here is a list of books that I used (and continue to do so) over the years {Note: these are Amazon links, just because that is the book store I use the most}:

http://www.amazon.com/Windows-NT-Device-Driver-Development/dp/1578700582/ref=sr_11_1/105-9780252-7013238?ie=UTF8&qid=1194112517&sr=11-1

http://www.amazon.com/Developing-Windows-Device-Drivers-Programmers/dp/0201695901/ref=sr_11_1/105-9780252-7013238?ie=UTF8&qid=1194112552&sr=11-1

http://www.amazon.com/Inside-Microsoft-Windows-Third-Programming/dp/0735610215/ref=sr_11_1/105-9780252-7013238?ie=UTF8&qid=1194112692&sr=11-1

http://www.amazon.com/Undocumented-Windows-2000-Secrets-Programmers/dp/0201721872/ref=sr_11_1/105-9780252-7013238?ie=UTF8&qid=1194112751&sr=11-1

http://www.amazon.com/Programming-Microsoft-Windows-Driver-Model/dp/0735605882/ref=sr_11_1/105-9780252-7013238?ie=UTF8&qid=1194112830&sr=11-1

http://www.amazon.com/Writing-Windows-WDM-Device-Drivers/dp/0879305657/ref=sr_11_1/105-9780252-7013238?ie=UTF8&qid=1194112862&sr=11-1

http://www.amazon.com/Developing-Drivers-Windows-Foundation-Developer/dp/0735623740/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/105-9780252-7013238?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1194112964&sr=1-1

You should also obtain a copy of the Intel developers manuals (if you have not already done so).

Hope that helps
