It sounds strange and I realize that you usually use WinDbg to debug drivers, but I was reading up on Gray Hat Python and it states:

To test this out, try loading the driver C:\WINDOWS\System32\beep.sys into Immunity Debugger. Once it's loaded, use the debugger's PyShell and enter the following code:

I'm wondering if this is at all possible. I simply tried loading up beep.sys in Immunity and it cannot find the entry point and doesn't seem to load


edit i didn't realize you are asking for immunity the answer is for plain straight ollydbg 1.10 the concept should be similar in immunity


ollydbg will now be able to load the driver (imports from hal etc will not be resolved but you can see the correct disassembly if you do alt+e (executable window) select beep.sys right click follow entry

it should be obvious that you do you your experiments on a saved backup copy of system drivers in a vm or a throwaway configuration and not modify originals and break the os to malfunction and burn your machine

open ollydbg alone and use view file to modify subsystem charecteristics to cons
ole or gui instead of native 0000012C    0300        DW 0003              ;  Sub

  • I have the same problem. @blabb: I changed the required bit at offset 12c also to 03. After loading the driver into imm. deb. again, it also says that the entry point was not found via exception message at the bottom. I use SHIFT+F7 to pass it to the debugger. I know its a long time ago, but do you need to pass the exception too ? – John McMillan Dec 26 '16 at 13:47
