How to enable boot logging in windows 10?

Boot logging is one of my favorite features in procmon. But after upgrading to windows 10, I found this function does not always work out.


Unable to write PROCMON23.sys.

Make sure that you have permission to write to the %%SystemRoot%%\System32\Drivers directory.



To work this out, we need to:

1. Delete  %%SystemRoot%%\System32\Drivers\PROCMON23.sys. You may not delete this file from current running OS, but you can do this in WinPE.

2. Importent! Please start procmon with the following command:

 C:\procmon\Procmon /BackingFile C:\procmon\log.pml /AcceptEula /Quiet /noconnect

3. Now, it works!

  1. Dude says:

    I unhidde it and then rename procmon23.sys

    I could then run:

    C:procmonProcmon /BackingFile C:procmonlog.pml /AcceptEula /Quiet /noconnect

    and enable logging.
