    18 In this article we focus on HLK testing, which allows getting a WHQL signature for a kernel-mode driver. This is the only way to make a driver load on Windows Server 2016 and later.

     21**NOTE:** it **is not required** to pass the HLK tests just to get a driver that loads on Windows Server 2016/2019. An attestation-signed driver is good enough. This claim contradicts the "official" Microsoft documentation but trust me, it is true. Our installers have attestation-signed drivers and no Windows Server 2016/2019 users have complained. Apparently that particular piece of MS documentation was written at a time when MS was _planning_ to require WHQL-certified drivers for Windows Server 2016+, then backpedaled and forgot to update the documentation.
