Possible Eset ELAM Driver Issue With Win 10 1809


Recommended Posts

Just upgraded to Win 10 x(64) 1809 Home yesterday.

Seeing this in my Win Event Kernel-Boot log:

Measured Boot library encountered a failure and entered insecure state. InitState: 1, StatusCode: 0xC0000001, Failure Address: 0x945657, Reference Address: 0xA4E840, Reason: 1.

As far as I am aware of, measured boot relates to loading of Windows Defender or third party AV ELAM driver.

ESET's EELAM driver doesn't load during system startup. I assume that uninstalling ESET would not make any difference with regard to the error.

I was able to find only one report of this issue, however, it's not clear what actually fixed it for the user: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-performance/measured-boot-library-encountered-a-failure-and/b3b41312-abb3-4ea0-9a7b-17c1a2ed5506.

Yeah, saw that previously. Ran the bcdboot command and it didn't make any difference.

Further research yields:

Secure Boot and Measured Boot are only possible on PCs with UEFI 2.3.1 and a TPM chip. Fortunately, all Windows 10 PCs that meet Windows Hardware Compatibility Program requirements have these components, and many PCs designed for earlier versions of Windows have them as well.

My PC motherboard has a BIOS and it doesn't have a TPM chip. So chalk this one up to the "never ending" 1809 snafus. At least it doesn't appear to bork the boot processing.
