Windows 7 is a remarkably polished operating system, but even after the OS was released to manufacturing, Microsoft confirmed of some additional rough corners to be softened, “Microsoft’ll address the problem in future releases,” reads the message. This’s the case of incorrect shutdown reason codes that’re written to System Event Log (SEL) in scenarios involving user-initiated shutdown actions from computers running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2. “The System Event Log is the database of events in the baseboard management controller (BMC) hardware. The SEL adapter conveys these events to the operating system,” the company noted. No word from the software giant on what “future releases” means, but chances’re that the company’s pointing to the first service pack for Windows 7.
