Windows Phone 8 delivers UEFI Boot Manager error message


I am not 100% sure this picture, tweeted by Mikko Hypponen, Chief Research Officer at F-Secure, is real, or what he did to cause it (probably some hardware hacking), but if there is any way to prove that Windows Phone 8 runs on the NT Kernel, a massive error like this is pretty good.

Have any of our readers ever seen this in the wild? And did you receive any Windows install disks with your phone? Let us know below.

Update: Dantist from the Pocketpc.ch forum had the same error on his Lumia 920, asking him to Insert his Windows Installation Disks, confirming it is real, and it apparently occurred without any provocation ? the message is clearly took keep your boot disks handy icon_wink.gif

Update 2: At least the first error was confirmed due to a hacking attempt trying to load modified firmware, which of course is exactly what UEFI signed bootloader is all about.
