Answer . You'll need to partition the disk so that you can have space for both OS's. Then you'll need a bootloader, such as LILO (Linux Loader) or some other bootloader that lets you select the OS. Install whatever Windows OS you need into one partition while the other partition is disabled. Wind…ows will take over every partition on the computer if it can. Then enable the other partition and load whatever OS you want. After that, install the bootloader. Recognize that if you're using Linux of almost any flavor LILO is already there. Good luck. (MORE)
Answer . By "booting" do you mean when you are installing the OS for the first time or do you mean after, you've installed the OS and are beginning to use Win XP. Are you asking how is it different from all the other OS's from Microsft in the installation. If so, then the first big difference, i…s that you do NOT have to make a start up disk with Win XP. So long as you change the boot sequence in your BIOS to make the CD Rom drive the first device to boot, save those changes and then restart, you should have smooth sailing so long as you follow the prompts after that. Check you motherboard manual for the right way to get into your BIOS, and under which directory you will find the boot sequence option. Hope this answers your question. Once you've finished the install make certain you change the boot sequence back to make the hard drive with the OS on it the first device to boot so as to increase the boot time [this may shave a couple of seconds off the boot sequence].\n. \nBM (MORE)
NTLoader. NTLDR. A: The boot loader program for windows NT/2000/XP, is Ntldr or Io.sys. .
You have to get to the BIOS to do that.Here is how to get to the BIOS and get your Computer to boot into the CD: To enter the BIOS is very simple. As soon as you boot up your system rapidly hit the Del or Delete button on your keyboard, and if that doesn't work reboot your computer and this time hi…t rapidly the F2 Key (At the top) and if that doesn't work reboot again and rapidly hit the F10 Key. After you get to the BIOS go to "BOOT" and make sure that the CD Drive is at the top, and to do that go down to the top option then hit enter then select the CD Drive. Also make sure the boot order is like this: 1.CD Drive2.Floppy Drive3.Hard Disk Drive Then go to the top and go to the right until you get to "EXIT" then go down until you get to Exit (Save Changes) or Save Changes and Exit.Reboot with the CD in the Drive and it should automaticly boot to the CD. I hope this helped,PSPSlimBoy âº :) (MORE)
Windows - boot process & simple troubleshooting . This is the (simplified) boot sequence for Windows NT, 2000, XP and 2003: BIOS : performs Power On Self Test (POST) BIOS : loads MBR from the boot device specified/selected by the BIOS MBR : contains a small amount of code that reads the par…tition table, the first partition marked as active is determined to be the system volume MBR : loads the boot sector from the system volume BOOT SECTOR : reads the root directory of the system volume at loads NTLDR NTLDR : reads BOOT.INI from the system volume to determine the boot drive (presenting a menu if more than 1 entry is defined) NTLDR : loads and executes NTDETECT.COM from the system volume to perform BIOS hardware detection NTLDR : loads NTOSKRNL.EXE, HAL.DLL, BOOTVID.DLL (and KDCOM.DLL for XP upwards) from the boot (Windows) volume NTLDR : loads \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM which becomes the system hive HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System NTLDR : loads drivers flagged as "boot" defined in the system hive, then passes control to NTOSKRNL.EXE NTOSKRNL.EXE : brings up the loading splash screen and initializes the kernel subsystem NTOSKRNL.EXE : starts the boot-start drivers and then loads & starts the system-start drivers NTOSKRNL.EXE : creates the Session Manager process (SMSS.EXE) SMSS.EXE : runs any programs specified in BootExecute (e.g. AUTOCHK, the native API version of CHKDSK) SMSS.EXE : processes any delayed move/rename operations from hotfixes/service packs replacing in-use system files SMSS.EXE : initializes the paging file(s) and the remaining registry hives ** before this step completes, bugchecks will not result in a memory dump as we need a working page file on the boot (Windows) volume ** SMSS.EXE : starts the kernel-mode portion of the Win32 subsystem (WIN32K.SYS) SMSS.EXE : starts the user-mode portion of the Win32 subsystem (CSRSS.EXE) SMSS.EXE : starts WINLOGON.EXE WINLOGON.EXE : starts the Local Security Authority (LSASS.EXE) WINLOGON.EXE : loads the Graphical User Identification and Authentication DLL (MSGINA.DLL by default) WINLOGON.EXE : displays the logon window WINLOGON.EXE : starts the services controller (SERVICES.EXE) ** at this point users can logon ** SERVICES.EXE : starts all services markes as automatic --------- NOTES: The SYSTEM volume is the partition from which the boot process starts, containing the MBR, boot sector, NTLDR, NTDETECT.COM & BOOT.INI The BOOT volume is the partition which contains the Windows folder - this can be a logical partition .

a small program that invokes operating system when power is switched on. That is boot loader. boot is a boot strapping process that is one program pulls may complected programs when power is switched on.
When you load Windows 2000/XP in Safe Mode, all files used for the load are recorded in the Ntbtlog.txt file. Ntbtlog.txt path= C:\Windows\Ntbtlog.txt page 701 or page 361 (guide to software)
It is known as a dual-boot. Install Windows first, then installwhichever distribution of Linux you what to use second. You aregiven the choice of which to use at the start of booting up.
The boot password is a feature provided by the motherboard (hardware) and is not stored in a file on the disk that WindowsXP could access.
\nTo fix the Master Boot Record on a Windows 2000/xp computer you must: \n1. Boot to the install media \n2. When prompted, choose Repair. ultimately, you'll access the Repair Console \n3. If necessary, log into your Windows application \n4. There is a utility on the install media called FIXMBR.exe,… On the command prompt, type FIXMBR and press enter. \n \nWhen Windows is installed, it creates the Master Boot Record on the first sector of the first hard drive. It makes a second copy or backup of the Master Boot Record immediately after the original on the hard drive. FIXMBR copies this backup copy of the MBR to the MBR location. \n \nIf you still cannot boot, repeat steps 1-3 above: \n4. There is a utility on the install media called FIXBOOT.exe. on the command prompt, type FIXBOOT and press enter. \n \nWhen FIXMBR fails to restore the Master Boot Record, FIXBOOT will read the information of the install and rebuild the master boot record from scratch and install it on the first sector of the hard drive. It will also create the backup. (MORE)
To change the contents of the boot loader menu in Windows XP, one must edit the boot.ini file.
A Mac will start from BootROM which passes control to either the BootX (PowerPC) or boot.efi (Intel) boot loader.
In computing, booting ( booting up ) is a bootstrapping process that starts operating systems when the user turns on a computer system.. The bootloader typically loads the main operating system for the computer.. A very small program (usually residing in ROM) which reads a fixed location on a …disk (eg. the MBR ) and passes control over to it. The data residing on that fixed location is, in general, slightly bigger and more sophisticated, and it then takes responsibility for loading the actual (MORE)
Windows 95 does not have a system policy editor, because it does not support access controls without third-party software. Windows 95 is essentially a single-user operating system.
Install Windows first, if you have not installed either yet. After it is installed, just install Linux to the other partition or disk. Most modern Linux distributions use GRUB, which will detect and automatically configure a menu for you to choose from when you start the computer.
In order to answer the question, one would need to know for which operating system the "bootstrap loader" or boot loader is intended. There have been many boot loaders since electronic computers capable of running stored programs were first developed. Some of the earliest bootstrap loaders had no na…me at all; they were merely a list of steps one would execute to flip switches on the front panel of a computer to enter a rudimentary set of instructions that would allow the computer to finish loading its operating program from a paper tape reader or stack of punched cards. One popular boot loader used with Linux systems today is called GRUB, which stands for "Grand Unified Boot Loader". (MORE)
Dr. Watson. If you were referring to what the file name for the program was, it was drwtsn32.exe.
You could boot it, but it would never get beyond the initial stages. The setup program looks for the CD after it starts so it can read the rest of the files. Since it does not know how to read a USB Flash drive, it will not find the files it is looking for and will fail.
In XP and earlier, it's called boot.ini. In Vista and 7 (and possibly future OSes), you have to use a program called bcdedit to change the bootloader.

I had the exact same problem with my own computer. Apparently, Windows 7 doesn't work that well with Windows XP's boot loader (when dual booting). I solved the problem (well...sort of) by booting into my Windows 7 partition, Installing EasyBCD (http://neosmart.net/dl.php?id=1) and adding Windows XP …to the boot loader again. The only thing is that when ever I boot into Xp (which is rare now) and then shut down, the Windows 7 boot loader is erased an I have to recover the computer with the Install DVD.

Yes. Some versions of Unix are capable of running on the same hardware as Windows. Mac OS X, a certified version of UNIX, includes a utility known as "Boot camp" to install Windows in a dual-boot setup easily. Solaris 10 can also be used in a dual-boot setup by carefully partitioning the drive and s…etting up GRUB. (MORE)
Absolutely, all you have to do is configure the bootloader to use Windows as the default entry.
Here's a Step-to-Step Tutorial MAKE SURE YOU READ EVERYTHING : Top to bottom, front to back. Do NOT copy/paste the script, it's only an example.
Format the hard drive using a standalone program or installation procedure of another operating system such as Unix/Linux. You cannot do it from a running copy of Windows.
Bootloaders are pieces of software that are responsible for helpingto load the operating system into memory during boot time.

What methods are available for booting into the Windows Setupprogram on a stand alone PC
Strange question, Windows itself was programmed in assembly language by hundreds of programmers. If you want to program for windows you could write a batch file to perform a simple task or for a more complicated program you would require a programming language which can be executed on windows for ex…ample Java or Visual Basic.

I THINK.... That there is no .exe for it but just a lot of separate files making the utility up in this file location Vista: C:\Windows\winsxs\Backup Correct me if I am wrong... Actually the correct answer to what is the program file name of the windows backup utility depends on what Windows… OS, you are using. If it's Vista, then it's the Backup and Restore Center which handles all files that can be backed up. For Windows 2000/XP, then its a program file called Ntbackup.exe. From there you just click Start, then All Programs, then go to Accessories, then go to System Tools, and then click Backup. Hope this is the information you're looking for. JRay25 (MORE)

The primary advantage of using a boot CD is that the tools on the CD can check files that would otherwise be memory-resident if you were booting from Windows. Also, many boot CDs are Linux based, and the tools available on them may have more diagnostic functionality than the standard Windows base…d ones. (MORE)
Nothing was techinically "replaced", but they booted in phases rather than specific files. This lead to adding bootmgr (Windows Boot Manager) which reads a registry type file that was not used in Windows XP.
If you forget the password, you won't even be able to turn on the computer.
Boot is the 'verb' . Boot loader is the set of code which is executed while computer boots.
What do you mean? Windows 10 is an operating system, which is used to house theprograms.
Yes you can. Ubuntu's WUBI uses the Windows bootloader (NTLDR) to boot Linux. It also uses the Windows filesystem (NTFS). This, however, is not the traditional way to do things. The traditional way to dual-boot Linux and Windows is to use a generic bootloader such as Grub to boot both Windows and Li…nux. (MORE)
Yes. It is a virus. I would get it off your computer right away if you have it.

I'm not sure what you mean by loader but to activate windows 7 Home Premium all you have to do is open the start menu, right click on Computer and click properties. Then click activate windows and you should be good to go.
Well, for starters, Microsoft got their act together to some extent, but the hardware it boots on and it's storage medium matter much more. If the hardware uses an SSD or Flash, it will boot faster than a hard drive.
It is not a button. It is the combination of ALT+CTRL+DEL that opens Windows Task manager.
Stage 1. It's a very VERY small program less than 500 bytes in size (Due to the limitations in the BIOS standard which forces MBRs to be almost unusably small by today's standards.) whose sole purpose is to load Stage 1.5 and, later, Stage 2 into memory and execute them, which will of course in turn… load and run either a kernel or another bootloader.
