HLK only shows two tests for my driver, and most of the playlists show empty, is this normal?

I have an NDIS LWF driver, and wanted to pass HLK.

Currently i installed the HLK for 21h1 on a windows server 2012 R2 as a test server machine, and a windows 10 21h1 as the client.

Right now, the default playlist shows only two tests for me.

  1. HyperVisor Code Integrity Readiness Test

  2. TDI filters and LSPs are not allowed

And after i downloaded the playlist, and tried load each of them, most of them are either empty, or only contain one or two of the mentioned tests above.

My questions are:

  1. Is this normal? Do i only need to pass these two tests in order for my driver to get installed in windows 7+?

  2. What's the use of these playlist? Should i just use the default playlist which includes these two tests? What's the use of selecting a specific playlist?
