Linux Boot Process

Posted 07-19-2010 at 06:21 AM by QueenZ

The beautiful thing about Linux is that you can actually get to know it. Iím writing my own Desktop Environment right now so it should be really great.
  1. First your computer runs whatever it finds on ROM, usually it is your firmware (BIOS/EFI)
  2. BIOS contains the Boot Sector Loader. What this does is it loads the first 512 byte sector (Master Boot Record at address 0000:7C00) into your RAM. It is a very small program that loads the rest of the boot loader. Since itís small size,

Pretty nice, isn't it?
How did I do that?
I got a good karuma. haha.

By the way, I was watering the rose and sakura seeds while wondering why the sakura seeds don't begin to sprout.

I want to sleep and never wake up.

This isn't playing the...
