    We are sorry that the de­tailed data­sheet is re­lated with con­fid­en­tial of MSI and the Man­u­fac­turer. It can­not be made pub­lic due to con­fid­en­ti­al­ity agree­ment. Sorry for the in­con­veni­ence caused you.

    These kinds of business strategies seem insane to me. A motherboard manufacturer will not disclose the details of a non-essential component on their own motherboard. They will not assist users in understanding the operation of their own product. All this, to lock users into drivers and an application interface that can only be controlled from one type of system.

      Could I de­bug a driver in a live sys­tem? Turns out it is pos­sible, but not without a second com­puter with a serial head­er.

      Live debugging in Windows is possible: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/hardware/ff553382(v=vs.85).aspx

      Also, you don’t need a serial connection to debug Windows kernels; Firewire, USB, and Ethernet is supported too: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/hardware/ff545347(v=vs.85).aspx
