Question about PC Desktops
When you hit the power button on your computer a whole lot of stuff
happens. We call this the boot process. In the days when I first
started using computers there was literally a "boot disk", a floppy
(5.25" not a 3.5") disk that told the system where to go and what to do
so that the operating system would start up. Since then the boot
sequence has become somewhat more complicated. So let me take you thru
the steps the computer takes to get started. For my example I'm going
to use a Windows XP system.
