Switching to x86 mode by iretq doesnt work

EugeneZEugeneZ Member Posts: 4

Hello Experts!

I have some problem with switching to x86 mode in my driver.

I use command iretq to jump to another segment. Right after jump I get needed value fo CS and SS registers, but next instruction reverts back my segments to x64 mode (0x10 and 0x18).

What could be a reason?

Here is my code:

push 38h
push rdx
push 8h
push rcx

Thanks in advance!

With respect, Eugene.
