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.

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 .

\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. ( Full Answer )
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 syste…m 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. . First is the POST, this stands for Power On Self Test, for the computer. This process tests memory as well as a number of other subsystems. You can usually monitor this as it runs each test. After that is complete the system will run POST for any device that has a BIOS (Basic Input-Output System). An AGP has its own BIOS, as do some network cards and various other devices. . Once the POST is complete and the BIOS is sure that everything is working properly, the BIOS will then attempt to read the MBR (Master Boot Record). This is the first sector of the first hard drive (called the Master or HD0). When the MBR takes over it means that Windows is now in control. . The MBR looks at the BOOT SECTOR (the first sector of the active partition). That is where NTLDR is located, NTLDR is the BOOT LOADER for Windows XP. NTLDR will allow memory addressing, initiate the file system, read the boot.ini and load the boot menu. NTLDR has to be in the root of the active partition as do NTDETECT.COM, BOOT.INI, BOOTSECT.DOS (for multi-OS booting) and NTBOOTDD.SYS (if you have SCSI adapters) . Once XP is selected from the Boot Menu, NTLDR will run NTDETECT.COM, BOOT.INI and BOOTSECT.DOS to get the proper OS selected and loaded. The system starts in 16-bit real mode and then moves into 32-bit protected mode. . NTLDR will then load NTOSKRNL.EXE and HAL.DLL. Effectively, these two files are windows XP. They must be located in %SystemRoot%System32. . NTLDR reads the registry, chooses a hardware profile and authorizes device drivers, in that exact order. . At this point NTOSKRNL.EXE takes over. It starts WINLOGON.EXE that in turn starts LSASS.EXE, this is the program that display the Logon screen so that you can logon. ( Full Answer )
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 ( Full Answer )
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.
This was taken out of Windows XP, but is still in Windows 98 and below.
1) Ntldr 2) boot.ini 3)bootsect.dos 4) ntdetect.com 5) ntbootdd.sys 6)ntoskrnl.exe 7)hal.dll 8)system 9)device driver explained more The Boot Process The boot process will slightly differ depending on whether your server is using an x86-based processor or an Itanium-based processo…r. This article exclusively deals with x86-based boot Process If you are running Windows Server 2003 on an x86-based platform, the boot process consists of six major stages: 1.The pre-boot sequence 2.The boot sequence 3.Kernel load sequence 4.Kernel initialization sequence 5.Logon sequence 6.Plug and Play detection Many files are used during these stages of the boot process. The following sections describe the steps in each boot process stage, the files used, and the errors that might occur. Stage 1: Pre-Boot Sequence A normal boot process begins with the pre-boot sequence, in which your computer starts up and prepares to boot the operating system. The computer will search for a boot device based on the boot order that was configured in the computer's BIOS settings. Steps in the Pre-Boot Sequence The preboot sequence is not truly a part of windows booting process. The pre-boot sequence consists of the following steps: 1.When the computer is powered on, it runs a power-on self-test (POST) routine. The POST detects the processor you are using, how much memory is present, the hardware is recognized and what BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) your computer is using. 2.The BIOS points to the boot device and the Master Boot Record (MBR) is loaded. It is also sometimes called the master boot sector or even just the boot sector.The MBR is located on the first sector of the hard disk. It contains the partition table and master boot code, which is executable code used to locate the active partition. 3.The MBR points to the Active partition . The active partition is used to specify the partition that should be used to boot the operating system. This is normally the C: drive. Once the MBR locates the active partition, the boot sector is loaded into memory and executed. 4.The Ntldr file is copied into memory and executed. The boot sector points to the Ntldr file, and this file executes. The Ntldr file is used to initialize and start the Windows Server 2003 boot process. Possible Errors & Solutions If you see errors during the pre-boot sequence, they are probably not related to Windows Server 2003, since the operating system has not yet been loaded. The following table lists some common causes for errors and solutions . . Symptom . Cause . Solution . Corrupt MBR . There are many viruses that affect MBR and corrupt it. . You can protect your system from this type of error by using a virus-scanning software. Most of the commonly used virus-scanning programs can correct an infected MBR. . Improperly configured hardware . If the POST cannot recognize your hard drive, the pre-boot stage will fail. This error can occur even if the device was working properly and you haven't changed your configuration. . Recheck your device configuration, driver settings. Also check for any hardware malfunction and failure. . No partition is marked as active . This can happen if you used the Fdisk utility and did not create a partition from all of the free space. If you created your partitions as a part of the Windows Server 2003 installation and have dynamic disks, marking an active partition is done for you during installation. . If the partition is FAT16 or FAT32 and on a basic disk, you can boot the computer to DOS or Windows 9x with a boot disk. Then run Fdisk and mark a partition as active. . Corrupt or missing Ntldr file . There are chances that, Ntldr file may be corrupted or deleted by virus attack. . . You can restore this file through Automated System Recovery or a Windows Server 2003 boot disk. . Back to the Top Stage 2: Boot Sequence When the pre-boot sequence is completed, the boot sequence begins. Ntldr switches the CPU to protected mode, which is used by Windows Server 2003 and starts the appropriate file systems. The contents of the Boot.ini file are read and the information is used to build the initial boot menu selections. When Windows Server 2003 is selected, Ntdetect.com gathers the system's basic hardware configuration data and passes the collected information back to Ntldr. The system also checks to see if more than one hardware profile is detected; if so, the hardware profile selection menu will be displayed as a part of the startup process. Possible Errors & Solutions The following table lists some common causes for errors during the boot stage. . Symptom . Cause . Solution . Missing or corrupt boot files . If Ntldr, Boot.ini, Bootsect.dos, Ntdetect.com, or Ntoskrnl.exe is corrupt or missing (by a virus or malicious intent), the boot sequence will fail. You will see an error message that indicates which file is missing or corrupt. . You can restore these files through Automated System Recovery. . Improperly configured Boot.ini file . It can occur when you manually edit Boot.ini or if you have made any changes to your disk configuration. . Recheck your configuration. . Unrecognizable or improperly configured hardware . If the error that appears is due to Ntdetect.com, the issue is surely due to hardware problems. . Best method to trouble shoot it is to remove all the hardware that is not required to boot the computer. Add each piece one by one and boot your computer. This will help you to identify the culprit. . Important Files Along with the Ntldr file, which was described in the previous section, the following files are used during the boot sequence: Boot.ini This is used to build the operating system menu choices that are displayed during the boot process. It is also used to specify the location of the boot partition. This file is located in the root of the system partition. It has the file attributes of System and Hidden. Bootsect.dos An optional file that is loaded if you choose to load an operating system other than Windows Server 2003, Windows 2000, or Windows NT. It is used only in dual- boot or multi-boot computers. This file is located in the root of the system partition. It has the file attributes of System and Hidden. Ntdetect.com Used to detect any hardware that is installed and add that information about the hardware to the Registry. This file is located in the root of the system partition. It has the file attributes of System, Hidden, and Read-only. Ntoskrnl.exe Used to load the Windows Server 2003 operating system. This file is located in WindirSystem32 and has no file attributes. Steps in the Boot Sequence The boot sequence consists of the following steps: 1. Ntldr switches the processor from real mode to protected mode. Then it starts file system drivers which supports your computer's file system. 2.Ntldr is responsible for reading Boot.ini file. It displays a Ã¢â¬Åboot menu which lets users to choose the operating system to load.If we choose an operating system other than Windows server 2003 say Windows 2000, or Windows NT, the Bootsect.dos file is used to load the alternate operating system, and the Windows Server 2003 boot process terminates. 3. Ntdetect.com file performs a hardware scan/detection and any hardware that is detected is added to registry in the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE key. The hardware that Ntdetect.com will recognize includes communication and parallel ports, the keyboard, the floppy disk drive, the mouse, the SCSI adapter, and the video adapter. 4.Control is passed to Ntoskrnl.exe to start the kernel load process. Back to the Top Stage 3: Kernel Load Sequence All of the information that is collected by Ntdetect.com is passed to Ntoskrnl.exe. The kernel load sequence consists of the following steps: 1.The Ntoskrnl.exe file is loaded and initialized. o Initializes executive subsystems and boot system-start device drivers. NOTE: By executive subsystems, I meant Process and Thread Manager, The Virtual Memory Manager, The Input/Output Manager, The Object Manager, Runtime Libraries which all runs in kernel mode. o Prepares the system for running native applications. NOTE: If you are not familiar with native applications, then it needs explanation. Windows provide two type of API. Well known Windows API (All Windows programs must interact with the Windows API regardless of the language.) and Native API. Native API is used by some windows components like kernel level drivers and system process aka csrss.exe o runs Smss.exe. The function of Ntoskrnl.exe: 2.The Hardware Abstraction Layer (or HAL) is loaded. The HAL is a kernel mode library (HAL.DLL) that provides a low-level interface with the hardware. Windows components and third-party device drivers communicate with the hardware through the HAL. 3.The control for the operating system is loaded. The control set is used to control system configuration information such as a list of device drivers that should be loaded. 4.Low-level device drivers, such as disk drivers are loaded. Possible Errors & Solutions: If you have problems loading the Windows Server 2003 kernel, you will most likely need to reinstall the operating system. Back to the Top Stage 4: Kernel Initialization Sequence In the kernel initialization sequence, the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINEHARDWARE Registry is created, device drivers are initialized, and high-order subsystems and services are loaded. The kernel initialization sequence consists of the following steps: 1. Once the kernel has been successfully loaded, the Registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE HARDWARE is created. This Registry key is used to specify the hardware configuration of hardware components when the computer is started. 2. The device drivers that were loaded during the kernel load phase are initialized. 3. Higher-order subsystems and services are loaded. Note: Higher order subsystem include, POSIX Subsystem, OS/2 subsystem. Possible Errors & Solutions: If you have problems during the kernel initialization sequence, you may trying booting to the Last Known Good configuration. Back to the Top Stage 5: Logon Sequence Session Manager Subsystem or smss.exe plays a vital role in logon sequence. Its main function include. 1. It creates environment variables in the operating system. 2. It Starts the kernel and user modes of the Win32 subsystem (win32k.sys and csrss.exe). It then starts other subsystems that are listed in HKLMSystemCurrentControlSetControlSession ManagerSubSystems Registry key. 3. smss.exe starts winlogon.exe, the Windows logon manager. winlogon.exe is a system service that enables logging on and off of users. It is also responsible for loading user profile. It invokes GINA( Graphical Identification and Authentication) which displays login prompt. The GINA accepts the user login credentials and passes it back to Winlogon. Winlogon then Starts Lsass.exe (the Local Security Authority) and passes login credentials to LSA. LSA determine which user account databases is to be used for authentication eg: Local SAM or Active Directory in case you are in a windows domain. 4. smss.exe finally starts the Services subsystem (Services.exe), also known as the Service Control Manager (SCM). It executes and performs a final scan of HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetServices to see if there are any remaining services that need to be loaded. Possible Errors & Solutions 1.If logon errors occurs, they are usually due to an incorrect username or password or to the unavailability of a DNS server or a domain controller to authenticate the request (if the computer is a part of a domain). 2.Errors can also occur if a service cannot be loaded. If a service fails to load, you will see a message in the System Log of Event Viewer. Back to the Top Stage 6: Plug and Play Device Detection Phase If Windows Server 2003 has detected any new devices during the startup process, they will automatically be assigned system resources. If the device is Plug and Play and the needed driver can be obtained from the Driver.cab file, they are extracted. Device detection occurs asynchronously with the initial user logon process when the system is started. Possible Errors & Solutions If the needed driver files are not found, the user will be prompted to provide them. If you have already installed the driver, then a simple reboot should detect the driver. Most of the problem that occur at this stage can be corrected by a reboot. ( Full Answer )
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". ( Full Answer )
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.

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.
System is powered on . The CMOS loads the BIOS and then runs POST . Looks for the MBR on the bootable device . Through the MBR the boot sector is located and the BOOTMGR is loaded . BOOTMGR looks for active partition . BOOTMGR reads the BCD file from the \boot directory on the active partition …. The BCD (boot configuration database) contains various configuration parameters( this information was previously stored in the boot.ini) . BOOTMGR transfer control to the Windows Loader (winload.exe) or winresume.exe in case the system was hibernated. . Winloader loads drivers that are set to start at boot and then transfers the control to the windows kernel. ( Full Answer )

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.
